Another Time is the story of Harriet, a 27 year old woman living in Philadelphia dealing with typical problems of indecisiveness, daily panic attacks, the sense of being lost, and a total fear of commitment. Only Harriet has more than twenty-something angst to blame for her troubles- she honestly believes she is a victim of botched time travel and belongs in 1783. Haunted by strange dreams, a hazy childhood, and strong connections to various historic parts of the city, she will suddenly be thrown into a situation that makes the question all the more pressing: Is she willing to give up finding a way home and settle into her modern existence? Written by Amy Frear

Charm in the idea and effort, but too long and not sharp enough in the delivery
2 July 2016 | by bob the mooSee all my reviews

There is a lot to like when you look at the IMDb page for this short film. It has a pretty cute poster that brings out the oddity of the project, and the plot summary clearly describes a quirk comedy with an odd lead who (probably) will make the right call to overcome her issues and get her life on the right track. It is a shame then that, despite several things to like, that mostly the film doesn't seem to be able to bring it home.

The delivery of the story is fundamentally flawed; the key elements are not always clear, and the positioning of all the pieces on the board, and what happens to them is not particularly well done. The creation, execution, and resolution of the central relationship is by far the best example of this – it doesn't really convince at any stage, and the "happy ending" smacks of irresponsibility and isn't something likely to get the viewer on board. It doesn't help that it comes suddenly as well – or comparatively suddenly, because this is a film that is far too long for what it is trying to do. Running longer than many a TV show, the delivery here lacks punch and sharpness, with the film as a whole, and individual scenes often feeling a bit shapeless and in need to a tighter script, a sharper focus, and a tougher edit.

It is a shame because the film does have big characters and a nicely quirky tone in the delivery and performances, it just doesn't have that base of production to fully deliver on it. This means that the potential you see in the concept, and in some elements of the delivery, just seems to slip through the film's fingers – but do so gradually so that the viewer has the whole 25 minutes to think about how much better this should have been.
