Storyline

On the same morning that a creep throws coffee on her at a bus stop. Ashley runs into Michael, a man she recognizes as a regular at the sandwich shop where she works. He offers to help - dry her off, cheer her up, and after hesitation, she agrees to join him for a cup of tea. He offers to take her to lunch, asks her advice about a gift for his sister, and so on through the day, finding ways to treat her royally. By mid-afternoon he confesses that someone wants her to have the best possible day. Who is it, and why? And, when he does tell her, how will she respond? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quite strange....but also quite likable.
20 February 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

I think for the sake of you and all the others who might read this review, I'll be a bit sketchy about the plot of this film. That's because there are some VERY strange twists and I'd hate to ruin the surprise. Suffice to say that it's a very strange and quirky sort of film but it's also quite likable and one I recommend you try.

"In a Day" is a film where most of the film takes place in one day. The leading lady (Lorraine Pilkington) works at a sandwich shop and sees the leading man (Finlay Robertson) regularly in the shop. One day, she is assaulted by a weirdo and it looks like a horrible day. However, when this customer finds her and sees she's very upset, he insists that he needs to stay with her and make her have a wonderful day. Again and again, he seems bent on doing anything to make her happy....then comes the twist.

I admire the film most because the plot took me off guard. After over 11,000 reviews to my credit, most films remind me of other films I've seen and plots are so seldom original. This one, however, is very original....and weird. But by the end, it's a good sort of weird. A nice effort all around and a decent romantic indie film.
