You're probably already in SIFF editing mode, flipping through our guide and cutting out every film-festival cliché in order to find the films that really interest you. Maybe you've already excised The Freebie, a romantic comedy about a young married couple who agree to allow each other one day of infidelity to renew their torpid sex life. If so, UNDELETE! Its premise sounds like every low-budget rom-com cliché ever, but The Freebie is a funny, squirmy, time-twisty look at sex and monogamy that deserves your attention. It is a pure joy of awkwardness. (Egyptian Theatre, 805 E Pine St, thestranger.com/siff. 4:30 pm, $7–$8.)
