Last month I wrote about the conceit behind the indie film Safety Not Guaranteed, which had opened to excellent reviews. The words of the title are found in a mysterious classified ad in a local paper seeking a partner for time travel. The ad also states that applicants will need their own weapons and, ominously, “safety not guaranteed.” As I emphasized at the time, that’s a pretty good metaphor for investing and for life in general.
I am back to report simply that I have now seen the film and it is terrific. It’s fun, interesting and thought-provoking. The performances are excellent. It will evoke questions about life, loss and taking a leap of faith. Go see it.
