Cashback, the stylish British feature from Sean Ellis, will see itself released in theaters stateside, on July 20 courtesy of Magnolia Pictures. Always experimenting with day-and-date releasing, Magnolia will then deliver the film on DVD starting July 24. The film, based on Ellis’ Oscar-nominated short film of the same name, screened at SXSW 2007. It’s an enjoyable look at British twentysomethings looking for love and careers during the graveyard-shift hours at a neighborhood supermarket. Featuring pleasant performances, a winning soundtrack, and lots of nudity (you’ll understand when you see it), this is the kind of British indie flick that would have been a cult smash 10 years ago. In 2007, it faces an uphill battle to stand out in the summer waves. It deserves a shot, though. If you’re a film school student, or know someone who is, this is most certainly worth seeing. When I caught the film in Toronto last year, I kept feeling like it was something my dorm friends and I would have worshipped.
