On the same morning that a creep throws coffee on her at a bus stop. Ashley runs into Michael, a man she recognizes as a regular at the sandwich shop where she works. He offers to help - dry her off, cheer her up, and after hesitation, she agrees to join him for a cup of tea. He offers to take her to lunch, asks her advice about a gift for his sister, and so on through the day, finding ways to treat her royally. By mid-afternoon he confesses that someone wants her to have the best possible day. Who is it, and why? And, when he does tell her, how will she respond? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

User Reviews

A deft experience of both sides of bullying
30 July 2011 | by lovetheuniqueSee all my reviews

It's rare to find such an original, delightful movie. It truly invites us to engage in the experience as it might be our own, with a realistic rhythm and subtlety that are easy to identify with. We're also pulled in by an ongoing, unanswered question.

In a Day invites us to consider themes of maturity, intimidation, bullying and hurt, both as children and adults, and the effects on us. It's remarkable how the subtle tone makes this more powerful than the usual overkill movie.

I love the character and integrity of this lovely work of art, I've recommended it often.
