Old (2021)

A vacationing family discovers that the secluded beach where they're relaxing for a few hours is somehow causing them to age rapidly, reducing their entire lives into a single day.

Saw an ad for this on the train from the airport last summer. Added it to my watchlist then, and finally I see it...

If half an hour is a year, and three days pass in the matter of seconds, then there are definitely certain inconsistencies here.

Like the rust, it should've spread quicker. If the bones healed as quick as they did. If the baby died in a minute. If the dog was gone so soon, too.

Age is a sad thing though, and so is this movie.

Little inconsistencies don't matter. Nor that they had a limited amount of lookalikes to reflect each person's individual growth.

The scenery's great, the actors are great, the idea is genius, and overall... it makes me want to live my own life. Fast.

Don't watch this if you need some uplifting y'all.

Watch it if you need to grieve, or need to find a way to just go on with your life. If you need to let something go maybe.

It doesn't matter where you are at the moment. How old you are. How far you've come. Who you are or where you are or what people you're surrounded by - though keep your family close if they're there for you.

I think I might just come back to this one down the line to remember...

It ends with a twist too. Good twist, sad tale, well made.
