Friday Flicks: Timer


From the movie: What if a clock could count down to the moment you meet your soul mate? In this alternate version of present day Los Angeles, a revolutionary device called the TiMER fulfills this very fantasy. For a reasonable installation fee and a moderate monthly charge, a TiMER is implanted in the wrist and promises to accurately display the number of days, hours, minutes and seconds until the owner’s date with destiny.

However, things aren’t so easy for Oona O’Leary (EMMA CAULFIELD, Buffy the Vampire Slayer). Oona faces the rare dilemma of a blank TiMER; her soul mate—whoever and wherever he is—doesn’t have a TiMER. While her family and friends move through life with predetermined romantic fates, Oona searches for her perfect match via the process of elimination, tentatively dating TiMER-less men, but never getting emotionally invested. Often, Oona even convinces her suitors to get TiMERs, only to have her hopes crushed time and time again. Staring down the barrel of thirty and tired of waiting for her would-be life partner to get off the dime, Oona breaks her own rules and falls for Mikey (JOHN PATRICK AMEDORI, Gossip Girl), a charming and inappropriately young supermarket clerk with a countdown of four months.

But what will happen when those four months are up? Only when Oona ignores the ticking clock can she finally experience the exhilarating and unpredictable hot mess that is love. -taken from the official Timer synopsis

From me: This movie popped up on Netflix when I was rating movies the other night and I was in the mood for a romance so I watched it. Wow. The movie, was amazing. I was completely caught up! Timer is one of those films that takes you on an emotional journey, full of questions and surprises and "what ifs", but when you finally reach the other side; you can sigh and say it was a good journey and a perfect ending. It was very refreshing to have an ending a little different the main stream chick flick end. I think you'll love it! (I doubt the guy in your life will though LOL).

I've never heard of this movie before. If I come across it, I'll have to pick it up...maybe one night while Rich is gone :-)
