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>

Indie film with a message and heart
16 October 2010 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

"In a Day" is a character drama disguised as a romantic comedy. The poster, reviews and other advertisements market this film as a romantic comedy. That's the easy way out as there is more to it.

Our heroine is Ashley, a struggling musician working at a sandwich café. When she has a bad day, a generous stranger Michael is there to sweep her off her feet and fill her with indulgences and confessions. It certainly sounds like a romantic comedy but instead of playing it out with comedy and romance, we get character development. We slowly learn more about Michael and Ashley, their past and what they want out of life.

It's not dark or menacing but it's also not light weight. It has a message; the film-makers have something they want to say. I'm not entirely sure I agree, but I appreciate their venture. "In a Day" took similar avenues that "You Again" (2010) tried, but this film did it with so much more intelligence that I had to knock "You Again" down a star.

If you like indie films with a message and heart, then I recommend "In a Day".
