A fast-moving and heart-warming comedy, BACK TO THE FUTURE is Robert Zemeckis’ well-loved 1980s classic. It is the story of a teenager from 1985 who commandeers the time-traveling DeLorean invented by a wacky scientist friend, and is accidentally sent back in time to the 1950s.
But the real problems start after he inadvertently disrupts the first meeting between his future parents–and his mom ends up falling for him instead. Eliciting help from the inventor of the time-machine (who is now thirty years younger), the young man must untangle the reverse Oedipal knot he’s created, or he will never be born. If he can’t influence them to fall in love, he might never exist! And if he somehow manages to succeed, he must then find a way to get “back to the future.”
