SYNOPSIS: Two couples on an oceanside getaway grow suspicious that the host of their seemingly perfect rental house may be spying on them.

Alison Brie, Dan Stevens, Jeremy Allen White, and Sheila Vand star in this unnerving and sophisticated debut thriller from Dave Franco (NEIGHBORS, IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK, THE DISASTER ARTIST).
