We gave it a C+

What starts off as a promising indie about a couple (Jake Johnson and Rosemarie DeWitt) trying to balance their own needs versus their partner’s quickly goes south in director Joe Swanberg’s latest meditation on aging-hipster malaise. Digging for Fire revolves around the discovery of a bone and a gun while Johnson and DeWitt are house-sitting. He becomes obsessed with digging for more stuff; she goes on her own adventure with Orlando Bloom. The unsubtle message: Don’t poke around for answers you don’t want to find. C+
