Day after day in lockdown life can seem rather monotonous. I mean there is so little variation and change it can be hard to find any meaning in it all. For that reason Palm Springs may be the perfect film for the entire world right now.
The trailer gives us quite the romantic start with a meeting between carefree and impulsive Nyles, played by the always hilarious Andy Samberg and shy but sweet maid of honor Sarah. played by the criminally underrated Cristin Milioti, at a Palm Springs wedding. All seems perfect until they both die and Sarah finds out that she is now trapped in an endless time loop with Nyles.
In true Groundhog day fashion the moment you die or fall asleep the day resets. But unlike Groundhog day we do not have to watch someone suffer through this alone, instead we see two people at different points on this journey together. It looks surprisingly sweet and very funny. Not only does the film two amazing leads but the cast also includes J.K. Simmons, Meredith Hagner, Camila Mendes, Tyler Hoechlin, and Peter Gallagher. So yes I will be watching this.
