After breaking up with his girlfriend, aspiring artist Ben Willis (Sean Biggerstaff) develops insomnia and takes a night-shift job at a supermarket to pass the hours.

When he's not dreaming of Sharon -- who may hold the key to resolving his sleeplessness -- Ben roams the aisles disrobing beautiful customers and sketching them.

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    Variety Justin Chang

    Slickly charming, genteelly erotic and directed with supreme polish, Cashback is a conventional romantic comedy that plays unconventional games with time and memory.

  • 70

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Crust

    Writer-director Sean Ellis more-or-less successfully expands his Academy Award-nominated 18-minute short to full length, showcasing his talented young cast to good effect.

  • 40

    The New York Times

    Cashback suggests a "Malcolm in the Middle" episode directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. The hero's pained, hilarious childhood flashbacks deserve a much better movie.
