1992, 99 Minutes, Directed by: David N. Twohy
Intelligent time travel story about a hotelier (played by Jeff Daniels)
and the first visitors to his hotel - a peculiar group of tourists who
are actually . . .
But that would be giving
away too much. The film, directed by
David Twohy (who directed the much underrated The Arrival and
who wrote Waterworld and The Fugitive), is a
good example of what can be done with a low-budget if you have a solid story
and can coax some good performances from your actors. Take heed Joel Schumacher!
It is based on a novella
titled "Vintage Season" (which I have never read) by Lawrence O'Donnell and C.
L. Moore. It was initially intended for the big screen as
The Grand Tour in 1991, but made
its first appearance on cable TV instead.
Also known as TimeScape.
Sci-Fi Movie Page Pick:Uneven, yet thoughtful. Time travel story with
an intriguing premise. This movie doesn't always deliver on its promise, but is still worth
catching on late-night television if you can. . .
