“Silicon Valley” star Thomas Middleditch gives a brilliant, deadpan comedic performance as a man in a downward spiral who uncovers his parents’ secret: They adopted and then gave up a baby girl before he was born. Now he’s on a mission to find his missing sister.

A comedy about learning to let go, and how everything is amazingly and incredibly connected. Newly divorced Ben (Thomas Middleditch, "Silicon Valley") has hit rock bottom, but fate seems to intervene each time he tries to kill himself. Six months after his best suicide attempt, he's doing slightly better thanks to therapy and the kindness of his neighbor Tabby (Diana Bang, "Bates Motel") until he gets some life-altering news: His parents had adopted a baby girl but gave it up once they found out that they were pregnant with Ben. Armed with adoption agency records, he believes he's found his "sister" in Hanna (Jess Weixler, "The Good Wife"), a textbook manic pixie dream girl he'd coincidentally met at the pharmacy the day before. There's a strange, otherworldly spark between them, and against their better judgment they find themselves falling for each other. But sometimes things are too good to be true, and Ben soon learns that the world might just be more inexplicable than he ever imagined. Entanglement is a fascinating piece of cinema, a philosophical comedy with a twisted heart about how life teaches us lessons in the strangest possible ways.
