Coherence (2013)

Director: James Ward Byrkit. Cast: Emily Baldoni, Maury Sterling, Nicholas Brendon. 89 min. Sci-fi/Thriller.

Group of people gathered at a night party gradually realize the house across the street is a mirror image of their own reality - same people, some actions, ... and same frightened interactions with themselves. This creates a very bizarre philosophical situation, where people start forgetting which guest belongs to which side, which side is reality, and which side the alternate reality. With some suspense/horror undertones, this is an entertainingly complicated story, but other than the small point of "don't take anything for granted", the take-home message was lost on me. Of course our lives can take infinite alternative paths; so what?
