Safety Not Guaranteed

A quirky comedy, utterly charming, sporting very many enjoyable moments.

There is this news team – a reporter and two interns – and they are investigating a chap who wants to travel back in time.  He has a spare seat, room for one passenger only, someone who needs to mend their life as urgently as he does his.

Will he find that one special person?  And how can his amateurish, Wellsian contraption possibly work as a time travel machine?

The film, which you should now realise is a romance as much as it is anything, has the only possible ending.  No matter, it’s a ride you’ll want to take.
