Movie Summary

Director:
Henry Jaglom
Released:
2009
Rating:
PG-13
Irene in Time is a comedic drama about a young woman who has trouble finding a meaningful relationship. Irene (Tanna Frederick) cannot seem to get past the first date with any of the men with whom she goes out. Mostly this is because she is obsessed with her absent father, who has left a huge hole in Irene's heart. Irene realizes that she has trouble connecting with men and tries to get better at it by voraciously reading books and plotting strategies about dating, but this only seems to make things worse. Her awful dating life also causes a strain with her mother (Victoria Tennant), whom Irene blames for the fact that her father is no longer around. Added drama enters Irene's life when she is contacted by her father's lawyer, who alludes to a mysterious message left for Irene by her dad. From there, Irene tries to puzzle together the clues of her father's message, hoping it might finally bring some harmony to her troubled life.moreless
