Response to What Are Some Of Netflix’s Hidden Gems?:
I watched it for the first time a few years ago, expecting to just watch an insubstantial chick flick, but its premise had just enough sci fi that it got me intrigued.
Basically, it’s a rom com set in what’s supposed to be present day LA, but everyone has these “timers” implanted into their wrists, counting down to the moment they meet their soulmate. Corny, right? Uhhhh no.
I immediately fell in love with the movie. Throughout, I had no idea how im the main conflict was going to resolve and to this day, I think about the ending and its implications about love, free will, and if we really have soul mates.
BEATRICE: You have stayed me in a happy hour: I was about to protest I loved you.
BENEDICK: And do it with all thy heart.
BEATRICE: I love you with so much of my heart that none is left to protest.
