I’m not sure what fever dream I was having, but it felt like one of those fever dreams where you can’t tell whether you’re dreaming or awake. All the plot points were only vaguely realistic and everything seemed to be happening in a daze. But hey, at least it’s on Netflix! It’s very dialogue-heavy with little action, so if that’s your cup of tea then this movie might just be for you!

The fever dream movie follows Sam, a businessman who is separated from his wife Phyllis after he cheats on her with another woman named Marion. Not long into the fever dream movie does it become apparent that the other woman in the fever dream show has feelings for him too but Sam cannot seem to get over Phyllis despite being caught up in the fever dream movie.
Phyllis and Sam, a married couple in their forties, are trying to recapture the electrifying passion they experienced years earlier. To spice up their love life after letting it become stale (all while under constant pressure from Phyllis’ friends), Sam suggests that they start having more experiences outside of the bedroom.
