Ben Willis is an art student who works the night shift several times a week at the Whitechapel Sainsbury's. He's clear about the arrangement: he trades his time for money - cashback, as he calls it. We meet his co-workers, Sharon, Barry, and Matt, and their supervisor, Jenkins. Ben's colleagues are good at wasting time, but Ben talks to us about how he makes his shift go faster: by imagining that time has stopped. We see this late-night world of drudgery through Ben's eyes, as time does indeed stop, and he can get out his sketch book. Written by
A completely refreshing short movie that is able to combine many different emotions in 20 minutes!
Working on the night shift in Sainsbury's, the movie shows how all the staff manage to pass the time to cope with the boredom of an 8 hour work shift.
Each with a completely different view on doing this which range from a meat counter, dairy products, plasters,shampoos and a unique imagination that will have you in rumination one minute, flustered the next and then laughing the other.
A brilliant performance from all actors/actresses.
I can't help but smile when I go shopping at Sainsbury's late at night...
