Ayo Edebiri’s new movie debuts with 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating

The Bear star Ayo Edebiri’s new movie Omni Loop has debuted with a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Directed by Bernardo Britto, the sci-fi drama follows a woman from Miami who “decides to solve time travel in order to go back and be the person she always intended to”.

Fresh from her success in last year’s comedy Bottoms, Edebiri stars in Omni Loop alongside The Bear co-star Chris Witaske, Seinfeld‘s Carlos Jacott, CSI: NY star Eddie Cahill and Weeds star Mary-Louise Parker.

Omni Loop premiered at SXSW on March 13, landing the highest possible score on the review aggregator site (at the time of writing) from six reviews.

The first reviews have highly praised Britto’s “grounded” directorial approach, as well as the comedic chemistry between Edebiri and Parker.

Here’s what critics have been saying so far:

“Time may unravel in Omni Loop, but, admirably, it opens up the space to think less about the secrets of the larger universe than to take stock of the smaller ones that exist around us.”

“Simultaneously ripping and repairing the proverbial heartstrings, Britto’s sci-fi drama is truly life-affirming.”

“Writer-director Bernardo Britto’s latest is one of those lo-fi sci-fi movies that weaves the impossible into the mundane texture of everyday life. That being said, Omni Loop could use a little more of a sci-fi flavour.”

“Sometimes, in film and in life, the greatest gifts are the ones you don’t expect yet were there all along. Omni Loop is this in beautiful, bittersweet action. As it loops back one more time, you’ll wish you could run it all back again.”

Omni Loop doesn’t have a release date yet. The Bear seasons one and two are available to stream on Disney+, with a third expected to premiere this June.
