This movie will make you think for years on end, Just that one little thing could change your life for good.
This movie is running to stories of Helen Quilley who has just been fired of her work place for drinking the night before has she rushes to the train station, while go down the stairs a little girl get in the way and she goes around girl and train door shut in face.
Then we see the movie rewind and she back on top the stairs this time mum pulls the girl way from wall so she can get past, just about got on to the train, in this scene we can she her on train also on outside train.
From here we see both side of stories, we see how life would have been if she did catch the train and we can also see what would have happened if she missed the Train.
The movie was well written and Gwyneth Paltrow is was outstanding in this movie.
8/10 ending was disappointed but it better then ending i was thinking of.
