Based upon the novel by Stephen King, ’11.22.63’ tells the story of recently divorced schoolteacher Jake Epping (Franco) who embarks upon a journey beyond anything he could have imagined when his old friend and diner owner Al (Cooper) reveals the truth about a seemingly normal, dusty closet within the tin diner that transports anyone that enters back to the exact same moment in the year 1960. Initially reluctant to believe his friend, Jake slowly begins to accept the truth after seeing it with his own eyes and hearing the detailed explanation Al provides. Soon Al recruits Jake to assist him with a longtime plan to travel back and wait three years in order to prevent the assassination of JFK. Eventually accepting the task, Jake soon finds himself adapting to the unfamiliar world he must linger within and even finds a partner to assist with his daunting task. Perhaps the only thing Jake didn’t count on falling in love with the beautiful Sadie (Gadon) which creates a new set of problems during his journey as he must simultaneously tackle a relationship with her, while continuing on his task against the ever dangerous past which is intent on fighting back.
