In a Day -- A drama. A comedy. A romance with an edge. Your life can be turned upside down in a day.

One ordinary morning, young struggling musician Ashley Branstead (Lorraine Pilkington) suffers a shocking encounter with a stranger.

This disturbing assault inadvertently triggers what becomes a very intriguing day with another stranger, her apparent knight in shining armour, seemingly genuine – but odd- Michael (Finlay Robertson).

By his subtle and not so subtle persuasions Ashley finds herself spending an enchanting but unusual day with the spontaneous Michael, quickly becoming captivated by his generosity and charm. But all is not as it seems.

Ashley begins to suspect that his actions might have an ulterior motive. Who is the mysterious stranger? What are his true intentions and who is he acting for?

When his secret is eventually revealed the truth threatens to destroy their whirlwind romance.

Some days you wish had never started, then along comes one you hope will never end. Anything can happen in a day.

A Charming Little Movie, 22 May 2013
Author: makiprettywoman3 from United States

I was looking at movies you can stream on Netflix. I see this movie "In A Day" and it keeps staring in my face. I don't know if I would like the movie but there was something out there telling me to watch this movie. You have Lorraine Pilkington who plays Ashely. Ashley works at a local sandwich shop. She is waiting at a bus stop and someone throws hot coffee on her. Why would this person do this? I don't know. She runs into a man who frequents this sandwich shop who offers to clean her up and cheer her up.

This ends up being a charming little movie. This movie has the elements of a Romantic Comedy in it mixed in with some more serious dialog and content. This movie does deal with some more serious issues such as bullying. I noticed a few people didn't like this movie. I'm guessing they were expecting this be a romantic comedy and these more serious elements changed how they felt about this movie. I don't think there were any serious problems with this movie. This movie is fairly straightforward. Most of this movie deals with this guy trying to cheer up this woman who so far has had a bad day. I would say this is a good movie to watch.
