As neat a story about responsibility as you can get....
I am absolutely staggered that this film is hovering under 5 in the scoreboard because there is nothing to dislike about it. Sure it isn't going to win awards but for it intended audience it is neat, concise, entertaining and does deal with its subject matter in a very clever way.
It is a clever take on Groundhog Day in that heroine Emma has three chances at arriving at where she sets out to be after helping a strange woman in the car park of the local shopping complex. Prior to that we have already witnessed Emma as someone who really does put herself out for everyone. During the second and third repeats of Emma's relived day or so, we see changes in behaviours which all lead to rather different outcomes. And this is done without sophistication, without being too clever, and without losing touch with the point of the film.
My only complaint was swallowed by a revelation at the end of the film and so you'll forgive me if I don't write it down here. You'll probably guess what I was going to say if you go and see it. It isn't a bad film and it is a rather good story, well acted and well shot.
Six out of ten.
