SAFETY NOT GUARANTEED (2012)
Safety Not Guaranteed || Jeff’s boss Bridget (Mary Lynn Rajskub) approves of his story idea and Jeff selects his team: Darius and a man named Arnau (Karan Soni), a studious biology major interning at the magazine to diversify his résumé. They travel to the seaside community of Ocean View to find and profile the person behind the ad. Jeff later reveals an ulterior motive for this assignment: to track down a long-lost love interest who lives in town.
Darius discovers that the person behind the ad is Kenneth Calloway (Mark Duplass), a stock clerk at a local grocery store. Jeff’s attempt to approach Kenneth alienates him, so Jeff orders Darius to make contact. Darius’s disaffected attitude serves her well, and she quickly endears herself to Kenneth as she poses as a candidate to accompany him on his mission. While Kenneth is paranoid and believes that secret agents are tracking his every move, Darius gains his trust as she participates in a series of training exercises in the woods around his house and begins to develop feelings for him. She tells Kenneth about losing her mother when she was young and that her mission is to prevent it. Kenneth says his mission is to go back to 2001 and prevent the death of his old girlfriend Belinda, who was killed when someone drove a car into her house.
Meanwhile, Jeff tracks down Liz (Jenica Bergere), a fling from his teenage years; although she is not as attractive as he recalls her being, they reconnect and sleep together. He asks her to come back with him to Seattle, but she believes this is just another fling for him, so she refuses. Upset by her rejection, Jeff takes Arnau out on the town and they pick up some young women.
