Starring: Leslie Odom Jr., Cynthia Erivo, Orlando Bloom, Freida Pinto, Jadyn Wong
Sci-fi romance written and directed by John Ridley. Set in the near future, Needle in a Timestack (2021) follows Nick and Janine (Leslie Odom, Jr. and Cynthia Erivo), who live in marital bliss, until Janine’s ex-husband, Tommy Hambleton (Orlando Bloom), warps time to try to tear them apart using Nick’s college girlfriend, Alex Leslie (Frieda Pinto). As Nick’s memories and reality disappear, he must decide what he’s willing to sacrifice in order to hold onto, or let go of everything he loves.
