While Sacha Baron Cohen has gone into character for films like "Borat" and "Bruno" to deliver laughs along with a sharp look at America's social and cultural hang-ups and curiosities, in the provocative documentary "The Ambassador," filmmaker Mads Brügger takes things one step further.

On paper, an indie comedy about someone who puts an ad in the classifieds, searching for a partner to go time traveling with seems pretty obvious and predictable. But writing and directing team Derek Connolly and Colin Trevorrow delivered something sharp, smart and surprising with "Safety Not Guaranteed." A low-key charmer that worms its way into your heart, the pair used the set up to explore (with a lot of laughs) the realities we construct for ourselves to make it through life, and what happens when they're broken. Anyway, it was a great feature debut for the filmmakers, and we're glad we don't have to wait long to hear what they're up to next.
