description

Increasingly anxious about his impending marriage to Nat (Rashida Jones- Parks & Recreation) and thoroughly bored with his day job as a wedding photographer, Theo (Chris Messina - Julie & Julia, Away We Go) establishes a hobby: he’s hired by clients to clandestinely snap voyeuristic photos of them as they go about their days. Things go smoothly until a sexy exhibitionist (Meital Dohan - Weeds) leads him into an all-consuming obsession. Stalking her day and night, the woman’s mysterious public trysts send Theo reeling, forcing him to confront uncomfortable truths about his sex life at home.

Monogamy is an acutely observed portrait of a relationship on the brink, a timely tale of masculinity in crisis in the face of fantasy and fear of commitment. Monogamy features a special appearance and an original song by chart-topping hip hop recording artist B.o.B., as well as music by Elbow, Can, Califone, Stars of the Lid, and an original song performed by Rashida Jones.
