Movie Info

Abandoned by her lifelong love for a younger woman on New Year's Eve, 40-year-old struggling actress Camille awakens in a hospital bed as a 16-year-old girl again, and vows to save herself from the heartache that awaits her in the future. Camille was just a teenager when she fell in love with Eric, and had a baby. Flash forward 25 years, and the man she thought she would grow old with is walking out of her life. When Camille gets the chance to do it all over again, she decides to avoid Eric, and change her future. But before long she's falling for Eric's boyish charm all over again, an unexpected development that puts a serious wrinkle in her brilliant plan. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Camille Redouble

This playful, sometimes whimsical, always engaging take on a familiar storytelling theme - alternative futures - manages to make the fantasy meaningful

The film is at its most successful in its depiction of perspective and the old adage that time brings the wisdom to differentiate between the things we can and cannot change

The film plays the scenario straight and seriously ... the lessons learned don't take much of a detour from what Peggy Sue discovered in her time travel.

A smile-engendering journey back to youthful innocence that we all wish we could take.

Full Review… | September 28, 2012

It's all a pleasant enough idyll, or maybe even a dream, but as an exercise in philosophically-grounded whimsy, Camille's time travels fall short.

Audience Reviews for Camille Redouble


I was disappointed. The 80's setting is pretty wasted and I don't think it worked having her appearance stay the same even though she's meant to have reverted back to her teenage self. Not as funny or interesting as it sounded. It's a shame.

Needless to say, there is not much originality in this ordinary comedy that reuses the cliched plot of the character who goes back in time to have a second chance in life. Even so, the story proves to be more enjoyable than it leads us to imagine.
