Would you want to know the exact moment you would meet your soulmate? In the unusual and very original new sci-fi romantic comedy TiMER, Oona O’Leary, played by Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Emma Caulfield, is desperate to find “the one” who is meant for her.
In this alternate version of present-day Los Angeles, a reasonable installation fee and moderate monthly charges allows anyone to have a timer implanted in their wrist, which accurately displays the number of days, hours, minutes and seconds until you will meet your soulmate. However, Oona faces the rare dilemma of a blank timer, meaning that her soulmate – whoever and wherever he is – doesn’t have one. At nearly 30, Oona is searching for her perfect match, wondering if she can just give in and let herself experience the unpredictability of the unknown, when it comes to love.
We recently caught up with actress Emma Caulfield on the phone, and she shared her gratefulness for being able to play such a well-written character in a great indie film that has something to say. She also talked about her role in Marti Noxon’s new television series for TeenNick, called Gigantic (premiering in July), which takes a fictional look at the complicated lives of children of Hollywood celebrities, as well as her original comic Contropussy, about an ordinary house cat looking for excitement in the world outside.
