Premiering at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, the first collaboration between writer-directors Martha Stephens and Aaron Katz offers pleasure all the way in a road movie refitted for a charming spin around scenic Iceland. Their serio-comedy of very modest ambition but with a distinct character of its own focuses on two 70-something former brother-in-laws, long due for a reunion, who take an unplanned trip with the intent of “getting our grooves back.” In their attempt to reclaim their youth, the pair’s travels take them through Reykjavik nightclubs, trendy spas, and rugged campsites in a gently amusing odyssey that is a throwback to 1980’s road trip comedies, as well as a candid exploration of aging, loneliness, and friendship. Filmed on location, the bawdy, bittersweet ode to friendship’s lasting joys and life’s inevitable regrets is highlighted by the beauty of Iceland’s incredible landscapes. (R, 95 mins.)
