*Online Premiere* After an unspoken line is crossed, three women are forced to confront each other in this surreal and darkly funny piece directed by Iva Gocheva. “Outer Space Love Story” uses an avant-garde theater set-up -- complete with stage rain, prop space capsules, and 4th wall breaks -- to explore the messy relationship between a married couple and an unwitting mistress. The philanderer insists it was just sex, a cold, detached response that leads to more drama on all sides. With sly humor and deceptively elaborate sequences, the film is a unique mix of meta deconstruction and relationship rom-com. Gocheva gets fresh performances from its three leads whose intriguing chemistry is built on subtle physical humor and choreography. -KA.
