Garth Davis rings every ounce of emotion from stars Saoirse Ronan and Paul Mescal in this stifling yet overwrought adaptation of Iain Reid’s psychological sci-fi novel about a married couple on a remote farm sometime in the future. Davis and Reid’s script plays like A.I. attempting to understand what the seven-year itch is.
