Charlie Kaufman’s latest mind-bending movie I’m Thinking of Ending Things, based on a book of the same by Iain Reid, is making waves.
In typical Kaufman fashion, the Netflix film takes the viewer on an oft-confusing and disturbing journey, and as such there’s not much that can be given away about the plot without also dishing out spoilers.
That’s why we’ve put together a spoiler-free synopsis of the film and quick look at the cast in a safe, spoiler-free zone.
What is I’m Thinking Of Ending Things about?
In simplest terms, this psychological horror movie follows a quantum physics student as she goes to meet the parents of her brand new boyfriend, repeatedly thinking to herself ‘I’m thinking of ending things’.
Her inner misgivings begin to be reflected back at her as things at her boyfriend’s parents’ house start to get creepy and the wintry weather eventually becomes dangerous.
Just what is it that the woman is thinking of ending? You’ll have to watch and decide for yourself as this movie is a pretty faithful adaptation of a book with an ending left open to interpretation.
