A modern-day twist on It’s A Wonderful Life, a transgenerational film, starring Christopher Lloyd introducing Rishon Salters, and featuring a strong ensemble group of young rising stars.
George (Christopher Lloyd, the eccentric Dr. Emmett Doc Brown in Back to the Future) is a man living with the physical pains of old age and the lingering sadness of youthful regrets. He is haunted by his inability to save Violet, a beautifully flawed love interest from nearly six decades ago. One Christmas, surrounded by his solicitous family, opportunity comes knocking via a time portal in his grandson’s closet, giving George a chance to travel back to his twenties and face the ghosts of his past in the flesh. With an older, wiser mind inside a now younger body, can he save Violet from her inevitable fate before the laws of the universe catch up to him? Can he right the wrongs he made toward the woman who was the real love of his life? Situated in a vortex of past sorrows and present joys, ReRUN illustrates the faultiness of memory and how even the gravest of old mistakes aren’t as daunting in retrospect.
