Plot Summary

A comedy that pays tribute to the science fiction genre -- specifically, the sub-genre of time travel. But here the alternate reality is contemporary New York City where past and future experiences of trust, commitment and denial are cleverly put to the test. Just as Ruby (Marisa Tomei) is beginning to relish her first-ever healthy relationship, Sam (Vincent D'Onofrio) begins muttering about being a time traveler from the year 2470.

    Fresh and flip and enjoyable, it's a sci-fi-tinged romantic comedy that I urge you to seek out.
