Ten Thousand Days

By Michael Duignan | Comedy
A man is convinced he'll die on his 10,000th day. But when he meets a girl at his cousin's funeral, things don't go to plan.

Every man in the Duncan family dies on their 10,000th day. The family curse goes far back into history and weighs heavily on Darby Duncan when he goes to his cousin’s funeral, where he falls in love with his cousin’s widow.

Arabella initially rejects Darby, but then gives in as Darby’s own 10,000th day approaches. Darby sweeps Arabella off her feet with wild adventures and romance, living life to the limit.

But as Darby’s final days approach, things don’t go as planned, and Darby has to reckon with just what it means to be alive.

This comedy mines a tone and atmosphere that’s both deadpan and quirky, and fans of filmmakers like Wes Anderson will enjoy both its dry humor and emotional complexity. Its script is both philosophical and down-to-earth, anchored with performances that both work within the film’s unique rhythms but remain heartfelt and sincere.

In the age of “YOLO,” “Ten Thousand Days” takes a wry, amusing look at what it really means to live life to the fullest — and the answer is a lot more complicated and resonant that you’d expect.
