Duration: 102 min.
After a painful breakup, Ben develops insomnia. To kill time, he starts working the late night shift at the local supermarket, where his artistic imagination runs wild.
Cashback is the debut feature from Sean Ellis, expanding on the story of his earlier Academy Award nominated short-film also called Cashback. It premiered at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival.
It is a film about an art student who has discovered the ability to stop time, and is able to wander around while the world is frozen in place. Who often take advantage of his powers to observe and sketch beautiful females at the supermarket where he works. Unfortunately, the excellent and promising premise of the short-film is developed merely into a rather bland and routine romantic comedy.
