Windfall (Netflix streaming):

A man breaks into a tech billionaire’s empty vacation home, but things go sideways when the arrogant mogul and his wife arrive for a last-minute getaway.

Definitely a different role for Jason Segal as the burglar. The movie wavers between dark comedy and suspense/thriller, although it tries to focus on the latter. Fake Matt Damon (from Breaking Bad; Jesse Plemons, who’s been in quite a few things since then) does play the cold-hearted a-hole quite nicely. 4 person cast, which is interesting (and I chalk up to pandemic filming?) but it helps the story, it doesn’t hurt it. Feels like a play.

It’s worth the 90 minutes for sure, if only to see that Segal is not just a comedy actor.
