Storyline

A good-hearted musician struggles to find a way to tell his beautiful barista coworker that he loves her, despite the fact that she is in a relationship. Meanwhile, regulars and customers at the café where they work have their own problems and encounters. A police officer keeps his eye on his wayward cousin, who owes money to a charismatic dealer, and a married man contemplates his relationship with a good-looking new acquaintance. However, one customer believes he is in fact the main character in a computer simulation of modern life, set in the microcosm of the café, all designed by a young girl. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

While Elly is sitting at a table talking to Avatar, the lighted logo on Avatar's MacBook computer goes dim, however, his screen is still lit. On this computer the back light for the screen is what lights the Apple logo. The lighted logo goes on and off during the conversation even though his screen is never turned off when we see it.

Quotes

Avatar: This whole freewill thing, I don't get it. Why did you build it into the program?
Elly: When you can go either way, but you choose to do the right thing, there's nothing more gratifying to me than that.
Avatar: But what if I choose wrong?
Elly: You won't.
Avatar: How do you know?
Elly: I know everything.
Avatar: [pondering] Then that's not really freewill, is it.
Elly: Sure it is. I know because I'm not subject to time. Which is just another construct of the program. I know what you'll do it, but I'm not making you do it.
Avatar: Hmm. And I guess you...

Sweet Movie
19 October 2011 | by (Boulder CO) – See all my reviews

If your willing to slow down the pace and go with this movie, your in for a sweet, thought provoking movie. If your an action movie goer, you may have a hard time staying engaged. Not a fault of the movie of course. The movie is based on the idea that everything in our so called reality is really an illusion. The thought provoking idea of what is real? Who created us and who pulls the strings? I once owned a café' called philosophers stone café' in which the same thought engaging ideas were tossed around with a cup of Joe everyday. Customers always said to me my café scene would make a great movie. Cafe' is close to that. Enjoy.
