Based on a Japanese novel, A Bolt from the Blue (Blu-ray release 2014-12-10) tells the story of a struggling magician.  He got struck by lightning, traveled through time to the past and met his parents.  He learned the truth why his mom left him.  Although this is a competent melodrama that creates tears and seems to be well received, I would like to see some surprise from a time travel movie.
