James vs His Future Self

James (Jonas Chernick) is stuck in a rut. He’s a theoretical physicist obsessively searching for a breakthrough in his research, and he’s also desperately in love with his colleague but can never work up the courage to tell her how he feels. That all changes when a man (Daniel Stern) shows up claiming to be his future self, after he finally discovered the key to time travel. He comes with a warning though: If James pursues his research, he will also ruin his life forever.

This hilarious sci-fi comedy was nominated for four Canadian Screen Awards, including Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor.
