Synopsis


Cashback
A young insomniac attempts to cope with his sleepless nights by taking a job at a local supermarket, only to discover that he possesses a curious coping mechanism in the debut feature from Academy-Award nominated filmmaker Sean Ellis. Ben (Sean Biggerstaff) has recently been dumped by his girlfriend, and in his grief he has lost his ability to sleep through the night. When Ben takes a job at the supermarket and makes the acquaintance of an odd collection of individuals, including silly slackers Barry (Michael Dixon) and Matt (Michael Lambourne) and aspiring kung fu master Brian (Marc Pickering), he begins to find his imagination taking flight in a most unusual manner. It seems that Ben has the ability to literally stop time, a talent that allows him to take pause, traverse the supermarket aisles, and ponder both his own life and the existence of the customers who stand frozen and completely unaware of his presence. As much a dreamer as Ben may be, however, his willingness to maintain his connection to the tangible, if slightly antiseptic, world he currently inhabits soon finds the wistful dreamer forming a close connection with disarmingly straightforward checkout girl Emily (Emilia Fox), whose solid ties to reality serve to offer a healthy contrast to the fantasy-prone insomniac's surreal form of escapism. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    I expected this movie to be somewhat like one of those National Lampoon movie by looking at the cover but I was glad it wasn't. This is a very good movie and does not have a single dull part in it. I would say this movie is funny in a dramatical way(if that makes any sense). This is my favorite movie of the year.

    Cashback seems aimed at an audience that would rather be told a story than shown a movie.This movie is much more than about the female body it is an enjoyable movie even if it's a lightweight effort.But the movie dealt with how a crazy group of supermarket employees spent hours of a night shift.
