If “Interstellar” has taught us anything, it’s that there are certain human behaviors — love, relationships, the desire to connect — that span generations and galaxies, and if you’re looking for a less lugubrious, more mirthful take on that notion, than the comedy “Periods” may be what you’re looking for.
Co-written and directed by Victor Quinaz, and starring Zachary Quinto, Penn Badgley, Willie Garson, and Grace Helbig, “Periods” jumps through past and future, from the big bang to the end times, from the bliss of the garden of Eden to the greatest wedding nightmare in Long Island’s long nightmarish history, to show how through the ages men and women have managed to get along, get by and get it on. Sometimes it works out, and other times, well, as you’ll see, it doesn’t.
“Periods” is now available on all your favorite digital platforms. Watch below.
