In BLACK BEAR, filmmaker Allison (Aubrey Plaza) arrives at a lake house that's owned by married couple Blair (Sarah Gadon) and Gabe (Christopher Abbott). They're considering turning the house into a B&B, and Allison, who hopes to find inspiration for her next project, is their first guest. Blair, who's pregnant, and Gabe bicker irritably, and Allison's attempts to lighten the situation fall flat. Characters start drinking, and things come to a head. Then the movie shifts to "Part II," in which the same characters are making a film that's somewhat similar to -- but also different from -- the events of "Part I." Gabe is now the director, playing cruel psychological pranks on the actors to gain more realistic performances. But his latest attempt backfires, leading to more trouble.
