(3 Chiles) LONG STORY SHORT

On the occasion of Teddy’s (Spall) marriage to Leanne (Wentworth actress Zahra Newman), a meeting with a stranger launches him forward in time, always on his anniversary. He watches friends come and go, his children grow older in the space of mere moments, and his marriage falter. A delightful romantic comedy with fantasy elements, Long Story Short is less about Teddy’s unusual predicament, which is merely a MacGuffin, than it is about the reason it’s happening to him in particular. It’s a funny, heartbreaking, and ultimately uplifting story about commitments and the value of love. Comedy, romance, rated R, 90 minutes, in theaters and On Demand and Digital — Michael Abatemarco
