Spoilers ahead...

So yeah, don't get too attached to Olivia Wilde as Justin Timberlake's mom. She's a victim of runaway inflation — if the bus ride didn't cost more hours than she had left to live, she could have made it. But that's how the world works, man — the poor gotta die, so the rich can live. It's a bit like a socialist liberation seminar being held in someone's sweaty basement, if it wasn't for the fact that it's attached to this wonderfully insane dystopian set-up.

And if you're going to have a totally in-your-face dystopia, having a cast that includes Amanda Seyfried, Cillian Murphy and Vincent Kartheiser as a totally slimy git, is not a bad start. All in all, In Time is still one of the fall movies we're most excited for. Fingers crossed!

In Time comes out October 28. [via Movie Line]

I thought the premises on which Niccole's society in Gattaca were based were contrived and I think the premises on which the society in this movie are contrived too. My suspension of disbelief fuse blew. I just don't see how real people would allow such a thought experiment of a society to come into being. Real authoritarian or totalitarian regimes, seem just creepily reasonable enough in desperate times that people willingly vote them into power or accept their rule. I just can't see how this society could come about.

Maybe there was some terrible war or global economic collapse?

Also I simple hate the whole concept that we are meant to die. I call bullshit on that. We aren't meant for anything.
