‘Take Me’ with Taylor Schilling and Pat Healy on EW’s ‘What to stream this weekend’ list

From EW

Forget day trips to the beach; kidnapping is the new weekend getaway in the indie dramedy Take Me, which sees Netflix star Taylor Schilling tackling one of her wildest (and best-acted) roles yet as Anna St. Blair, a headstrong professional who hires the floundering founder (director-star Pat Healy, sporting a fabulously absurd toupee) of a boutique abduction business to whisk her away as the willing victim of a staged criminal plot. With deep pockets and a high threshold for pain (she actively wants him to slap her around), Anna’s requests gradually intensify as the film progresses, culminating in a sobering conclusion that offers fresh perspective on the tried-and-true formula of self-exploratory cinema: In order to find ourselves, sometimes we have to, uh, forcibly take another soul along for the ride. β€”Joey Nolfi (@joeynolfi)
