An excellent movie if you can take wanting more when it's over.
I just finished the movie and it really is a great piece of work. No futuristic crap mixed up though you might expect it. Miss Knightley really does a great job playing the part, though her role seems to have been kept a bit too far in the background.
The whole idea of changing the future has been brought up before, but this time instead of changing the future by altering the past it brings new perspective by altering the present by adding new info from the future. At first it reminded me very much of Butterfly Effect. If you like that one, you'll love this one.
It also shines new light on the subject whether or not you can change your own destiny which hasn't been brought up in a while.
It surely is a "must-see".
