Nominated for Best short film at the Oscar this year, this wonderful little film uses the “old” Groundhog Day formula to great effect and does something which is not just completely new, within a genre which never ceases to surprise me, but also manages to deliver one of the most important moral lessons and heartbreaking message.

It might not be subtle, but the circumstances are such that subtlety is meaningless at this point. The names over the credits serve as a reminder of how much out of hands this has gone. Just as I am writing this the news of 20-year-old Daunte Wright was killed by a policeman who “accidentally discharged a “handgun”.

Yes, it is the real groundhog day.

Beautiful, clever and very effective.
