ReRun is a comforting must see film.
ReRun is a different kind of time travel movie. There's no one that has to meet another before someone disappears, no life threatening conflict and sometimes we need a movie like that. One where we can just sit and enjoy what's in front of us.

The film starts with an elderly George Benson, played brilliantly by veteran actor Christopher Lloyd, at a future Christmas reminiscing about his past youth, specifically focusing on one young woman who he hasn't let go of, despite him marrying another woman and having a family. His grandson Nicholas, played by newcomer Rishon Salters, reveals that the closet in his bedroom can take anyone back in time to wherever they like.

Letting his curiosity get the better of him, George enters the closet and comes out on the other side as a younger version of himself at a past Christmastime. He's back with his fiance Mary, his old crush Violet and her abusive boyfriend Frank. Now while George isn't exactly back for a do-over, he does get to see his past with a fresh eye and with at least seventy years worth of hindsight behind him.

This film boasts of a well-rounded cast with the talented Christopher Lloyd and uprising talent of Rishon Salters, their scenes together are some of the best moments in the film, along with the young adult cast as they simply navigate through life and that's nice to see. It's nothing complicated, no big plot, no real villain (just a jerk or two), it's just a slice of life and it's nice to see that every once in a while.

In the end, ReRun is a film where everyone can get something out of it. Adults can enjoy the elements of reliving their youth, teenagers can get a taste of what life may or may not be as they become adults and everyone can enjoy the positive spirit this film brings up as Christmastime always does.

Imaginative film
Great film to watch with family, provokes questions about our human condition, the choices we make and how we live them....if only, we can go back in time, make some changes. Lloyd brings a tender, visceral yearning to his aged character.

An wonderfully inventive take on fixing your past.
I saw this film at the Big Apple Film Festival and thought it was fantastic. Christopher Lloyd plays an every man figure nearing the end of his life but is given the chance to 're-run' his biggest regret. An unexpected plot full of longing to be whole, betrayal, and learning to work to the life you have better. A+

Magical & dramatic with humor - wonderful ensemble performances and a super leading cameo at the top and end by Christopher Lloyd — a film about second second chances & re-imagining one’s past!
