In Time

I REALLY liked the concept of this movie!!!  In this sci-fi picture, time “is” money.  You stop aging at 25 and a counter in your arm starts counting down 1 year that you have left to live – unless you can find ways to get more time to add to your life.  You can work and earn time, receive gifts of time, gamble – just like money.  But, you also pay for everything with your time clock – a phone call, a cup of coffee, a car – everything!  If your clock hits 0:00, you are dead - no exceptions -  and no second chances!  If you have time, you’re rich – if you don’t, you’re poor - and everyone can tell at a glance just by looking at your arm.  At first, it seemed really far-fetched, but the more I think about it, it’s really easy to relate everything to our current lives and the role money plays in our society.  I actually can’t stop thinking about it!  I’d definitely recommend it if you’re wanting something a little different!
