Trivia

A role was offered to Rachel McAdams, but a deal could not be reached, due to scheduling conflicts with Doctor Strange (2016). See more »

Goofs

There are two explanations for why Love, Time, and Death were not seen in the videos. One is that they were removed with editing software. That would be true if they were only actors. Otherwise, they could actually be Love, Time, and Death pretending to be actors, because they were also helping Howard's friends with their issues. The PI was hired to follow Howard, so would film any action on his part. She may not have seen Time, Love, or Death because they can appear to whomever they wish and remain invisible to everyone else. They only interact with the main characters. See more »

Quotes

Claire: What was that thing you said about Einstein in there?
Raffi: Einstein called time a stubbornly persistant illusion.
Claire: Whats that even mean
Raffi: Time doesn't go from January to December, or from noon to midnight. You know we all just make it that way in our heads.
Claire: That's absurd! Try telling that to a person who's an hour late to a wedding, or that's just been sentenced to 20 years in jail.
Raffi: Or someone fighting the baby clock.

Emotional from start to end... worth every moment in it.
23 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

I'm going to keep this short since there are already so many other great reviews here to read... to sum it up though, this is a Very well put together film, with Many great elements, some of which are Very unexpected. I usually HATE dramas, and am more of a fun action / suspense / adventure kind of film guy... but every so often, a film such as this comes out, and its one that someone can easily break their usual style and enjoy.

Forget all the comments giving it one star and hating on this film... they seem very short sighted in their perception, and are unable to see how every moment in this movie had a point and purpose, while being Very thought out. Perhaps some are mad at the film because they don't want to admit it made them cry a ton, while still ending in a way to feel warm about.
