Storyline

You're awake when everyone else is asleep. You're standing still as traffic is whipping by at 70mph. You see dusk and dawn everyday because they happen on your way to a time clock and then to a bed. Your off hours are spent trying to figure out why you're here, whether you want to stay, and how to leave. Written by The Off Hours

Excellent Film!
6 June 2011 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

The Off Hours was by far the best movie I've seen at the Seattle International Film Festival. It is so powerful and moving. Breathtaking scenery and a stunning cast paired with an amazing soundtrack. Life in a dead end town, pure and simple.

The characters are so depressing in such a beautiful way. It's rare to go to a film that really changes the way you feel when you leave the theater. I left feeling the way every one of those characters felt, as if I was part of the film.

I would highly recommend it and see it again for sure.

I give it a 10 out of 10 easily.
