Stars:Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried and Cillian Murphy
In a future where people stop aging at 25, but are engineered (with a watch on their left forearms) to live only one more year. After this period, people need to find means to get more time. And everything, from a cup of coffee to a bus ticket, will take minutes, hours or months from a person's life.
Here, Will Salas (Justin Timberlake) and his mother live in Dayton (like a Ghetto) and struggle to live day after day. One night, he saves the life of a man who has 1 century on his watch and in return the man gives Salas all his time. As Salas finds himself falsely accused of murder and chased by the Timekeeper (amazing Cillian Murphy), he decides to elope to New Greenwich. There he ends up in a casino and gambles with Philippe Weis for time. Weis gets impressed with him and invites Will to his house.
The Timekeeper bursts into Weis' house and arrests Will who manages to scape and takes Sylvia Weis (Amanda Sayfried) - Philippe's daughter - as a hostage. As the plot evolves, Will and Sylvia become romantically involved (how predictable) and together try to take time from those who have too much and give to those who have enough for just one day, in a socialist attempt to equally redistribute time so everyone can have plenty.
Apart from the obvious money analogy, which shows that for a few to be wealthy, many have to live in misery, the movie also makes us wonder about how we are spending our time: are we just letting the time in our watches go by or are we doing something worthy with it?
