Story:  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 live in marital bliss, until Janine’s ex-husband warps time to try to tear them apart using Nick’s college girlfriend.  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?

The film was adapted by Ridley from a short story by Robert Silverberg, an author who has been inducted into the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame and has won the Hugo and Nebula (awards dedicated to sci-fi literary work) multiple times.  Needle in a Timestack was announced back in 2017, and according to Silverberg, went through a long post-production phase. It is set to premiere on digital, VOD, and in limited theaters on October 15. Blu-ray and DVD editions hit shelves just a few days later, on October 19. Sources:  fangirlish.com; collider.com.
