Storyline

The film follows a teenager contentedly living the same day in an endless loop who gets his world turned upside-down when he meets a girl who's also stuck in the time warp. What follows is a love story with a fantastical twist, as the two struggle to figure out how and whether to escape their never ending day. Written by yusufpiskin

Quotes

Mark: It's great, being the only one who knows what's going to come next, but it's also... weird. Like everything that's happened has happened, like, a thousand times. Everyone is, like, sleepwalking. They think this is all there is.
Margaret: Yeah. Like everyone else is dreaming, and you're the only one who's awake.
Mark: Exactly.

Future teen classic
12 February 2021 | by ugmmbSee all my reviews

This is going to become a cult teen classic in the not too distant future. It's about living in the present, not being a passenger or just an observer in our world.

Good lessons for living as part of our shared future.
