Spin Me Round trailer finds Alison Brie looking for love in Italy

After a successful collaboration on Horse Girl for Netflix, Alison Brie and Jeff Baena are reuniting for a new film, Spin Me Round. In this story, Brie leads the cast as Amber, a high-performing manager for a chain of Italian restaurants in America. When Amber is selected to travel to Italy for an all-expenses-paid corporate retreat, she also harbors dreams of getting swept off her feet by the man of her dreams. In the trailer below, it looks like Amber might get her wish. That said, there’s definitely something off about the whole thing.

Nick Martucci (Alessandro Nivola), the Italian owner of the restaurant chain, seems more than willing to play into Amber’s romantic fantasies. But the biggest red flag is Nick’s personal assistant, Kat, as played by the ever-talented Aubrey Plaza. Kat literally wakes up Amber at an odd hour to get her ready for Nick, and she seems a bit too invested in letting the duo have their fun.

It’s not clear from the trailer if there’s actually anything sinister going on, but the description of the film promises that Amber’s “romantic getaway devolves into chaos and catastrophe.”

NFL games today: schedule, channels, live streams for December 3
Kyler Murray prepares to throw a football.

Heading into Week 13, the two best teams in the NFC are the Philadelphia Eagles (10-1) and the San Francisco 49ers (8-3). The 49ers and Eagles met in last year's NFC Championship Game in a highly-anticipated showdown. However, the Eagles knocked San Francisco quarterbacks Brock Purdy and Josh Johnson out of the game, resulting in a 31-7 blowout victory in favor of Philadelphia. With Purdy back under center, Sunday's matchup between the Eagles and 49ers should be much closer.

There are 11 NFL games scheduled for Sunday, December 3. Many teams are jockeying for playoff positions and need to win to move up in the standings.
