Art student Ben Willis develops insomnia after going through a painful break-up. To kill time, he joins a colorful cast of characters on the late shift at the local supermarket. They all have their own time-killing devices, and Ben's allows him to see the beauty of the everyday world including the people inside it ... especially Sharon, the quiet checkout girl, who just may hold the answer to resolving Ben's insomnia.
A slight but likable British comedy-fantasy with a touch of naughtiness, Cashback is an expanded version of director Sean Ellis' Oscar-nominated short film of the same name about a bored supermarket clerk who discovers that he has the ability to stop time. Sean Biggerstaff (from the Harry Potter franchise) is Ben, a lovelorn young man whose chronic insomnia (due to a bad breakup) forces him to bury himself in pointless and repetitive work at a local grocery store. Once there, boredom causes him to believe that he can stop time, and he enjoys long and languid fantasies about undressing and sketching the female shoppers. But reality intrudes in the form of recollections of his troubled past, as well as the lovely presence of fellow clerk Sharon (Emilia Fox), who offers the promise of love in the real world. A gentle and artfully directed independent film, Cashback doesn't run very deep in terms of emotion, but the special effects are clever, the cast quirky and amusing, and its premise is an appealing mix of softcore reverie and boyish longing. - Paul Gaita

Making of Cashback
Sexy and sweet. A bunch of misfits on grave yard shift at a supermarket. Charming!Published 28 days ago by smir5864
Tries hard to be an art film and after 90 minutes I stopped watching. The main character is classically introspection.

Yes The Girl On the Cover Is In The Movie. Thank God. The Story Is Very Original And The People In The Movie Seem Like Typical Regular Blokes. Highly Reccomended. Read morePublished 2 months ago by MIKE JACOBSEN
Didn't know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised considering this was originally filmed as a short. Shaun Evans is hysterical in this movie.Published 3 months ago by jayebee
Once you get past the nudity, be ready to be put to sleep. One scene of a rear and full frontal. One scene of five or six women. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Wasqually Wabbitt

|"Cashback" is a total ripoff of Nicholson Baker's "Fermata"||
I absolutely agree. I hope that Nicholson Baker is aware of this and is taking some legal action. There were so many scenes that were such blatant rip offs. I will be watching this Sean Ellis to see who he steals from next.
