Take Me, already out on iTunes, played on the big screen in Chicago for what is likely to be the only time this past Monday night.  It’s very funny.

Directed by Pat Healy from a screenplay written by Mike Makowsky, the movie stars Healy, Taylor Schilling, Alycia Delmore, and Parks and Recreation favorite Jim O’Heir.  With a running time of 83 minutes, the film is really short.  O’Heir’s appearance is a pleasant surprise but it’s a fun one.

Healy stars as Ray, a guy who runs a business in which he abducts people in simulated scenarios.  It’s not a business most of us would want to run in real life, let alone try.  He’s been struggling since moving back home following a incident that happened in Atlantic City.

Ray’s luck changes when Anna St. Blair (Schilling) contacts him with an offer he can’t refuse.  The job doesn’t turn out to be what he thought when Anna tells him that she never made a phone call for his services.

Distributed by The Orchard, Take Me was released on iTunes on May 2nd following its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 25, 2017.  A Netflix streaming release will follow at some point.
