Darius is a young intern at a Seattle-based magazine and jumps at the chance to investigate the author of a classified ad seeking someone to travel back in time with. Along with Jeff, the staff writer, and Arnau, a fellow intern, the three go on a road trip to a coastal town. While Jeff just wants to chase after his high school crush and Arnau wants some kind of life experience, Darius spends her time with Kenneth, a man who believes that he has built a time machine. The closer they become and the more they understand about each other, the less clear it becomes if Kenneth is just crazy or if he actually is going to successfully travel back in time. Written by
Some scenes were improvised, for example, when Jeff advises Arnau to raise his collar and wear sunglasses since they make him look like "a pilot that drives jets". See more »
When Darius is backing up the van to pick up Kenneth during the laser robbery, it is obviously a shot of the van driving forward (used a few shots later), but run backwards - exhaust goes into the tailpipe. See more »
The mission is been updated. I'm going back for you now. All Right. Do you trust me?

This film is well written and acted. I truly enjoyed watching it, as the cast was chosen well and were believable. The story line was very interesting and gripping at times.
However, not sharing spoilers here, the film sort of ended on a high note - but no real closure. I feel there was more room to develop in some areas. For example what has happened to the main charterers after the ending, or maybe some more of the relationship between Jeff and his former (high-school?) girlfriend.. I needed 40 more minutes to tie in this feature nicely.
Maybe there will be a director cut of the film? maybe.
