Release Date: OUT NOW!
2015 | 15 | Blu- ray/ DVD The release of this Robert Heinlein adaptation was announced too late for us to run a larger review – a shame, because we rather liked it. The film follows the original 1958 short story pretty closely, but adds an additional bonkers twist. Ethan Hawke plays a bartender listening to a guy’s tragic life story; he, it emerges, was formerly a she, and the bartender’s actually a temporal agent out to recruit him. We said: “An increasingly jaw- dropping tale of temporal paradox, presented with considerable noirish period style”, but noted, “Brought to life by flesh and blood actors, the story’s perverse central premise becomes a whole lot harder to swallow.”
