"Cashback" is a 2006 romantic comedy-drama that tells the story of Ben Willis, a young art student who suffers from insomnia after a traumatic breakup with his girlfriend Suzy. To help pass the time, he takes a job as a night shift employee at a local supermarket where he discovers that he has the ability to freeze time. As Ben adjusts to his new job and discovers the secret of his supernatural ability, he finds himself drawn to one of his co-workers, Sharon Pintey. He spends his nights sketching her and the other employees, bringing them to life in his artwork.

Through Ben's narration, the film explores his thoughts on the value of time, the beauty of the human form, and the pain of heartbreak. He reflects on his relationship with Suzy and how he mistakenly spent most of his time obsessing over her rather than truly appreciating her.

As the story progresses, Ben begins to distance himself from his co-workers and becomes obsessed with his ability to freeze time. He spends his nights in the store creating elaborate tableaus of the frozen employees, eventually leading to his discovery by the store's security personnel.

Despite the consequences of his actions, Ben's experience at the supermarket ultimately allows him to move on from his past relationship and view the world in a more appreciative light.

Throughout the film, we see the relationships between the characters develop in unexpected ways. Ben's bond with Sharon takes center stage as they navigate their feelings for one another while dealing with their pasts.

Sean Biggerstaff delivers a captivating performance as the film's protagonist, capturing Ben's grief and thoughtfulness with nuance and charm. The supporting cast also excels in their roles, particularly Emilia Fox as Sharon, who radiates a quiet strength and vulnerability.

The film is visually stunning, with director Sean Ellis using slow-motion cinematography to create a dream-like atmosphere. The stylized visuals are complemented by a hauntingly beautiful score from composer Guy Farley.

"Cashback" is a unique film that blends comedy, drama, and romance with a touch of magic realism. Its exploration of the human experience is both thought-provoking and entertaining, making it a must-watch for fans of indie cinema.
