Dark Star Pictures and Uncork’d Entertainment presents a heartbreaking and emotionally gripping crime thriller, Time Now, starring Eleanor Lambert and Claudia Black. Writer/director Spencer King deconstructs the revenge thriller and examines the emotional toll from a vengeance-seeking character.

A young mother returns to her estranged hometown of Detroit after the sudden death of her twin brother and immerses herself in his friend group, soon discovering that his death is not what it seems. 

Here are 5 reasons why you should watch Time Now:

5) Eleanor Lambert!

Eleanor Lambert is incredibly amazing in the breakout role of Jenny. With such a charismatic leading performance, Lambert meets the complex demands of a multi-layered protagonist on the verge of a moral, physical, and mental breakdown. Audiences will come away in awe of Lambert’s incredible performance and will be wanting to see more of her, especially after the last gut-wrenching scene. 

4) Claudia Black!

Claudia Black does a fantastic job bringing in a bit of levity from her role as Joan. There’s a funny scene between Joan and Jenny’s kid that feels natural and deep in metaphor. There’s also a sadness to the role because Jenny observes an emotional connection that she does not have with her own child. 

3) The Direction!

Writer/director Spencer King dives into the deconstruction of revenge thrillers and asks deep moral questions. Time Now really came across to me as a thinking-man’s piece with unanswered questions. As a visual storyteller, King understands how to jump around between flashbacks and the present. The editing by Alexander Rydell makes this work without being gimmicky. 

2) The Cinematography!

The cinematography by Sean Mouton captures the harshness and beauty of its location. In one scene, Detroit comes out alive with its diversity and landscape. In another scene, Detroit has this Cole and somber feel because Jenny has become exiled from her own hometown.  

1) A Gripping Thriller!

Time Now is a definite must-watch for audiences. This is a different kind of crime thriller that will blow away your expectations.  

Time Now can be found on On Demand and Amazon Prime beginning October 26, 2021.
