History will always repeat itself
25 October 2001 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

After a woman fervently wishes for another chance after a terrible tragedy, she is mysteriously granted one year of her life to be lived over. Vowing that things will be different this time around, she sets out on a new job in a new locale. Instead of being able to control things the second time around, she is repeatedly frustrated at finding herself helpless to stop events from unfolding in eerily similar ways. Decent enough film, but no great shakes.
