Faced with the prospect of a promotion Wil Schindel must decide whether it's time to take a voluntary redundancy from the rat race
20 October 2006 | by andrea-callySee all my reviews

Meet Wil (Matt Dyktynski), a young creative trapped in an accountant's body whose subconscious has been sequestered in a lift. Up until now, Wil has never reviewed his role in the rat race or his plans for the future. But the prospect of a promotion, requiring a ten-year commitment puts Wil's mind into overdrive.

With sixty seconds on the clock, Wil Schindel literally watches his life flash before his eyes, as he travels up and down life's elevator accompanied by a cast of characters with conflicting advice about which direction he should take.

With the press of a button Wil is able to travel between the past, the present and future, each containing its own unique landscape, including a cemetery, his mother's womb, a sauna, a bank and a prison.

Wil's ride on the elevator becomes a spiritual journey and as he ascends he comes closer to realizing his higher self.

As he journeys upward the cables begin to break, sending him crashing back to reality where he must face that eternal question 'Wil' he or won't he (take the promotion)?

Cute and quirky, Wil is a light-hearted look at life's little ups and downs. The film taps into a common preoccupation—how to be happy and find balance and direction.

First-time feature director Jeremy Weinstein confidently directs a fine cast, including Matt Dyktynski (most recognizable from The Secret Life of Us) Max Gillies as the perplexed therapist and a cameo by Colin Lane (of Lano and Woodly fame) as a game show host.
