Trivia

Writer/director/star Linas Phillips also appeared in Eastbound & Down: Chapter 24 (2013) of Linas Phillips three years before the release of Rainbow Time (2016) in which he plays a character named Shawnsee, remarkably close to Shonzi. See more »

Goofs

When Lindsay greets Justine and Pizza (the wheelchair-bound Corgi) outside of the apartment, Pizza is referred to by Justine with female pronouns. In the closing scene where Shonzi meets Justine and Pizza on the street, Pizza is referred to by Justine with male pronouns. Presumably, this error occurred because two dog actors were used for the role of pizza (Chaz The Corgi and Lolita The Corgi). See more »

Quotes

Lindsay: He's not the only one who's who's doing wrong all the time. He's not just being told that's not okay.
Todd: Yeah.
Lindsay: You're saying I did something that's not okay.
Todd: Yeah. Or, we could just drop him off at Nina's.

Ayyyyy
9 June 2017 | by xposipxSee all my reviews

Rainbow Time begins as a pretty lighthearted comedy with some dramatic elements. The second half relies more on drama with some minor comedic elements. The first half is more successful, but it still works overall. The characters and plot are off-beat and keep the viewer interested enough to want to see how the characters develop throughout.

The film relies heavily on the acting ability of the three leads. Luckily, all three perform excellently and play their roles almost flawlessly. Rainbow Time does not try to be something it's not - it tells a pretty simple story about some simple people with common problems. If you like any of the lead actors, give it a shot.
