#11 Groundhog Day
If you only had one day to live, what would you do?
What if you had to live that same day over and over again for all time?
Bill Murray is an arrogant, self-centered weatherman begrudgingly on assignment in Punxatawny for the Groundhog Day ceremony. Somehow, he gets stuck in a loop, reliving the same day, repeatedly. At first, he uses the repetition for illicit gain, trying to take advantage of others, realizing that he’s falling for his boss along the way. When things start to go wrong, and he loses focus, he settles into depression, to darkly hillarious effect. It’s not until he learns to use his extra chances to better himself and improve the lives of those around him that he starts to discover the true beauty of a brand new day. It’s not shakespeare, but it is a poignant look at life and what we make of it.
What would you do with a second chance?
