Harriet is a 27-year-old woman living in Philadelphia and dealing with common twentysomething problems: indecisiveness, panic attacks, and a sense of being lost. She needs to sort things out soon, because this confused young Philadelphian has more than quarter life angst to blame for her troubles. Harriet honestly believes she's a victim of botched time travel and belongs in 1783.
Part of New Hope Film Festival's opening night Local Film Showcase, this thoroughly southeastern Pennsylvania film by first-time filmmaker Amy Frear delivers its comedic punchlines with decided sympathy for the protagonist. Improbable as they are, Harriet's imaginings are relatable. After all, how many people have ever felt they were born in the wrong era?
