In Geoffrey Orthwein and Andrew Sullivan’s new film “Bokeh,” a young American couple wake up to discover their world has completely changed during a romantic getaway in Iceland. After a flash of light shoots across the sky, the next day Jenai (Maika Monroe) and Riley (Matt O’Leary) discover that every person on earth has disappeared. As they struggle to survive, the mysterious event leads them to reconsider everything they know about themselves and start to wonder if perhaps they should leave too.
