Groundhog Day (1993)
“What would you do,” exasperated TV weatherman Phil Connors asks in Groundhog Day, “if you were stuck in one place and every day was exactly the same and nothing that you did mattered?”
It’s the smartly executed premise that made the 1993 fantasy-comedy a part of our lexicon, shorthand for repeating the same experience over and over and over. Bill Murray played the obnoxious and eventually transformed Phil to perfection, later calling it “probably the best work that I’ve done.” The Library pays homage to that indelible performance, the Harold Ramis-directed film, and the unique, every-February observance at its center.
