“If love is in the form of a circle, what lines would you cross to be with your soulmate?” asks the official synopsis. “In this gripping, near-future love story directed by Oscar-winner John Ridley (12 Years a Slave, American Crime), Nick and Janine (Oscar nominees Leslie Odom, Jr. and Cynthia Erivo) live in marital bliss, until Janine’s ex-husband (Orlando Bloom) warps time to try to tear them apart using Nick’s college girlfriend (BAFTA nominee Freida Pinto). As Nick’s memories and reality disappear, he must decide what he’s willing to sacrifice in order to hold onto — or let go of — everything he loves. Can love endure in a future where time is fluid, and all of life may be just an illusion?
