| One of those rare movies that fascinated me so much that I kept watching the end credits till the very end, filled with a joyous feeling of delight and surprise.
What a wonderfully, joyous, uplifting, quirky story about a man who puts an ad in a newspaper, in which he is searching for fellow humans who want to TIME TRAVEL. Safety NOT guaranteed. A newspaper magazine thinks this might be an interesting news article and sends 3 young reporters to check out this mysterious guy who placed the ad for the time travel. During researching this time travel guy, things quickly get out of control in a very amusing and quirky way.

The subject of time traveling does sound silly, but surprisingly enough this movie is really grounded and down to earth and although the mystery plot seems to be truly about some sort of time travel, the true heart of this movie is to be found in longing and reliving memories of love, that once were. Still sounding too vague to get an idea what this movie is about? Well then, just imagine a quirky love story mixed in with a mystery plot, that about covers this movie in a nutshell.

Very sweet and lovely and quirky and original. Great acting performances by Aubrey Plaza (those eyes!) and Mark Duplass. Terrific music score as well. Just one of those movies that really put a lovely, joyous uplifting, surprised feeling in my head that stayed there well beyond the end credits... For all ages to be enjoyed...
