Palm Springs is a movie that implements the classic time-loop trope (think Groundhog Day or for you younger people, Edge of Tomorrow), but brings refreshing humor and romance to the table. The story follows Nyles (Samberg) and Sarah (Milioti) who have a chance meeting at a Palm Springs wedding and become stuck together in an infinite time loop. As Sarah comes to terms with being stuck, she begins to embrace Nyles’ carefree nihilistic attitude as the two fall for each other, wreaking havoc on the never-ending wedding celebration.
Best of luck to Palm Springs in this category! Make sure to check out our review of the movie here and stay tuned for more updates!
