Tagline: This might be a time machine.
Plot: Over the last few years, Jay Baruchel lit up the screen as “Danger” in Million Dollar Baby and the scene-stealing Zeppelin fan in Almost Famous. Now, Baruchel realizes his romantic lead potential as the star of David Ray’s imaginative love story Fetching Cody.
Set in Vancouver’s notorious Downtown Eastside, Baruchel plays Art Frankel, a hustler and general lay-about, who is head over heels in love with the luminous Cody Wesson (Sarah Lind). When she falls into a coma from an apparent overdose, it is up to Art to seek out the one person who offers him any kind of hope: his homeless friend Harvey – and the time machine he found in a dumpster.
Desperate to reach her, Art suspends disbelief and embarks on a quest through time and space deep into Cody’s past. After several humiliating attempts to figure out where things went wrong, it slowly begins to dawn on him that the real problem in her life might just be him. What ensues are a series of increasingly reckless attempts to avoid the one thing he fears most – sacrificing his profound love for Cody in exchange for her life.
A startling debut by first-time director Ray, Fetching Cody is sure to rouse the most cynical heart with this wildly original tale about redemption and the lengths a most unlikely hero will go for love. --
