Needle In A Timestack has people bending time for their own romantic ambitions.
The film has an all-star cast that includes Leslie Odom Jr. (Hamilton, One Night in Miami), Cynthia Erivo (Bad Times at the El Royale, Harriet), Orlando Bloom (The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl), Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire, Rise of the Planet of the Apes), and Jadyn Wong (Scorpion, Cosmopolis).
Here’s the official synopsis of Needle In A Timestack:
If love is in the form of a circle, what lines would you cross to be with your soulmate? In this gripping, near-future love story directed by Oscar-winner John Ridley, Nick and Janine (Leslie Odom Jr. and Cynthia Erivo) live in marital bliss, until Janine’s ex-husband (Orlando Bloom) warps tie to try to tear them apart using Nick’s college girlfriend (Freida 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. Can love endure in a future where time is fluid, and all of life may be just an illusion?

It is based on the short story of the same name by Robert Silverberg.
Obviously, this is a different kind of sci-fi love story. With big names in the cast and John Ridley, the producer behind 12 Years a Slave and Three Kings, it has the right pieces to pull of an intriguing film. The trailer looks like it’ll be a slow-burn romance, however, it doesn’t quite reveal the antagonist of the film.
Needle In A Timestack is in select theaters and available as digital and On Demand on October 15. Then it is followed by a Blu-ray and DVD releases on October 19.
