    Safety Not Guaranteed (2012)

    After a very unusual classified ad appears in a newspaper a team of journalists search for the writer. The ad is searching for someone to join the writer on a time travel adventure.

    The setting for this small town story gives this film a very real feel. The few characters in this film all have some mystery behind their intentions. The idea of time travel is the worm sitting on a hook in this film. It's mentioned several times. But hidden behind this idea is a wonderful story about two people trying to find meaning in life.

    Aubrey Plaza and Mark Duplass play the two main characters that would like to change something in their past. If time travel was real today I'm sure we'd all like to go back and change something. I'm a believer in learning from the past and making yourself a better person now and in the future. Happiness isn't something waiting in your past. It's something that is found right now.

    I give Safety Not Guaranteed... 3 1/2 Stars
