The film was executive produced by Glen Basner of FilmNation, and Jason Krigsfeld and Joseph Krigsfeld of Brothers K Productions. Flick tells the story of Marina (Kurylenko) and Neil (Affleck), who meet in France and move to Oklahoma to start a life together, where problems soon arise.

Bold and lyrical, the film is a moving, gorgeously shot exploration of love in its many forms.
