Frequently Asked Questions About Time Travel

Three blokes walk into a pub, stumble across a tear in the space/time continuum and have to decide whether to sacrifice their dreams to save the lives of others. Sounds like the worst set-up for a joke ever, doesn’t it? Yet refreshingly, director Carrivick’s feature debut is both dark, compelling and occasionally laugh-out-loud funny.


Taking place in the pub and the future, it can sometimes stumble into Red Dwarf territory, but strong performances, especially from Dean Lennox Kelly as the cynical Pete and Anna Faris as kooky time-traveller Cassie, and a smart script do enough to ensure you’ll stay with it until the end.


Verdict
Quirky and engaging with a script that keeps you on the ride.
