This week has sucked. I think everyone can agree. I thought other people might need a pick me up movie suggestion after this craptastic week.

I found about time a few weeks ago on sale at Target. I remembered that it had a vaguely scifi premiss and Bill Nighy so I grabbed it. I forgot I had it until last weekend so Mr. Moxie and I spent Friday night on the couch watching it.

The storyline from IMDB: At the age of 21, Tim Lake (Domhnall Gleeson) discovers he can travel in time... The night after another unsatisfactory New Year party, Tim's father (Bill Nighy) tells his son that the men in his family have always had the ability to travel through time. Tim can't change history, but he can change what happens and has happened in his own life-so he decides to make his world a better place...by getting a girlfriend. Sadly, that turns out not to be as easy as you might think.

It is a sweet movie. It starts like a romantic comedy but feels more encompassing than just boy trying to win girl over. The main character has a really sweet relationship with his Dad and you see more of the stuff that just comes at you in life and how and if you can even change things by ducking back in time.

Plus, Bill Nighy. I love him.

It left us both feeling really good. I would use the word "heart warming" to describe it. I will probably watch it again before the week is out.
