Since losing her husband Mal (Edi Gathegi) in a drunk-driving incident, Sophie (Judy Greer) has struggled to manage crippling grief, a full-time job, and the demands of parenting her devastated teenage daughter (Faithe Herman). When her husband’s best friend Jabir (Payman Maadi), a former physicist, reveals that he has been building a time-bending machine that could restore her former life, Sophie will be faced with an impossible choice—and unforeseeable consequences.

There are many movies that deal with time travel and looping but you are going to have a hard time finding a better one than 'Aporia.' The film tells the story of Sophie and her daughter who are having a hard time moving on with life after the loss of her husband Mal. But when Mal's best friend mentions a machine that might be able to piece her life back together Sophie agrees to give it a try and it works. But with every action there is always a reaction and more and it doesn't take long before Sophie begins to see those effects.

'Aporia' is a drama/ sci-fi that deals with a number of things including loss and the hurt and grief that comes with it, family and consequences.'Aporia' is Writer/Director, Jared Moshe third film behind the camera and it is easily his best. In fact it is one of the best films I have seen this year. The writing is only one of the films strengths. You are immediately suck into Sophie's life right from the start and you remain engaged through all its drama, twists and emotion.

Another thing that made the film so good was the cast including, Judy Greer, Edi Gathegi, Payman Maadi, Faithe Herman, Whitney Morgan Cox and Veda Cienfuegos. Everyone is amazing in the film but this has to be the performance of Judy Greer's career to date. You feel every emotion she goes through and you really care for her and the rest of the characters.

'Aporia' is a slow moving, thinking man's Sci-fi/Drama that will have your mind racing long after it is over. It will have you wondering what you would do if you had the same chance and it is a film that will have you telling all your friends and family about the moment it ends. And speaking of the ending, I don't think there could have been a better ending to an already stellar film. The film will had its debut at the FANTASIA Film Festival and will be in Theaters on 8/11 so be sure to check local listing and if available in your area go check out one of the best films to come out in a long time. A good film is suppose to suck the audience into the character's lives and to feel things. While this film does just that.
