Did You Know?


Abner Pastoll was in fact the original film editor and worked for several months shaping the narrative creatively with the director. 99% of the final cut still retains his original work. The on-line editor was erroneously given the 'edited by' credit despite only working in a technical capacity at the end of post production (as an on-line editor would). See more »

A deft experience of both sides of bullying
30 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's rare to find such an original, delightful movie. It truly invites us to engage in the experience as it might be our own, with a realistic rhythm and subtlety that are easy to identify with. We're also pulled in by an ongoing, unanswered question.

In a Day invites us to consider themes of maturity, intimidation, bullying and hurt, both as children and adults, and the effects on us. It's remarkable how the subtle tone makes this more powerful than the usual overkill movie.

I love the character and integrity of this lovely work of art, I've recommended it often.
