Adam Cuttler’s review:
It's a time travel movie with the Duplass Brothers' treatment, that is to say it's very indie. The brothers acted as producers on this one.
I think I have seen a fair amount of indie movies to tell the good ones from the bad ones, and this one had all the elements in it that would have me placing it on the bad list. I mean, how could I possibly enjoy a movie whose esthetics mirror that of a lower budget version of Juno (2007), a movie I had no hesitations of throwing into the bad pile, by the way. Both that movie and this one contain angst laden scripts, actors delivering uninspired lines with deadpan expressions, and an influx of whiney indie folk music?
With all that being said though, this movie's charm managed to eclipse all of those usually ugly aspects found in most of those other bad indie offerings, making this one a win for the good side of indie filmmaking. In the end I was won over.
