"Freezer Burn" (2007), or, "I'll wait right here for you to catch up with me"

I'm working on a blog entry about the Old Town Ale House ("Chicago's Best Dive Bar"--Tribune), its owner Tobi Mitchell, her husband Bruce Cameron Elliott, and their daughter Grace Littlefeather Elliott. I looked up to see my caregiver, Flora Doronila, uncommonly wrapped up in something she was watching on her iPad. "He is in love with a very young girl, Mr. Ebert. He freezes himself until she can grow older."

SnagFilms.com descibes this film by Charles Hood: "Virgil is a thirty-year-old scientist developing technology to permanently preserve human organs for transplant. However, his obsession with his work takes a toll on his marriage. Virgil's only distraction is Emma, a fourteen-year-old student in his wife's high school art class. His sanity hangs in the balance as he struggles to suppress his taboo attraction to the girl. Virgil decides to use his experimental technology to freeze himself in order to align his age with the young girl's. But his plan doesn't turn out the way he'd hoped resulting in unexpected consequences for all involved. A fantastic sci-fi comedy, a perfect hybrid between Tom Hanks "Big" and Kevin Spacey's "American Beauty."

✔ "Two thumbs up" -- Doronila.
