Directed By Harold Ramis
Cinematography by John Bailey
Phil Connors, played by Bill Murray, is not happy. He's being sent, yet again, to cover the famous annual tradition of Groundhog Day. He's a TV weatherman and is trying to get in and out of Punxsutawney as fast as possible. However, not only does he not get away so quickly, he also ends up waking up and re-living the same day. Over and over. But while time stays in place, Phil changes.
Although this movie repeats the same day, technically, over and over - it never gets boring. We see Murray's character go through a lot of the stages we would go through ourselves if we were to ever hypothetically be given the opportunity to alter the decisions we made the day before. It's fascinating because it's a chance we'll never have. The film is less about him being a weatherman, or about the holiday named in the title, but instead about a man lifting his head up to what's around him.
