description

Taking place in a lavish resort that’s described as a “paradise” by its owners, TIME SHARE is a cinematically arresting psychological thriller. A family’s long overdue vacation doesn’t get off to a good start when they must share their room at a luxury resort with another family who were double-booked in the same bungalow. Parallel storylines depict the psychological disintegration of the paranoid fathers from each family as they team up to rescue their families after becoming convinced an American timeshare company has an evil plan to take away their loved ones. You’ll think twice before agreeing to a time-share pitch after seeing Sebastian Hofmann’s (HALLEY) unsettling sophomore feature.
