in time

the year: 2011

the genre: sci-fi

the cast: Justin Timberlake (Will Salas); Amanda Seyfried (Sylvia Weis); Cillian Murphy (Raymond Leon); Olivia Wilde (Rachel Salas); Matt Bomer (Henry Hamilton); Alex Pettyfer (Fortis)

the plot: In a future where people stop aging at 25, and are engineered to live only one more year (unless they can buy their way out of it), Will Salas finds himself accused of murder and on the run with a hostage - a connection that becomes an important part of his war against the system.

don't miss: Will's car. Ooh. Pretty!

listen for: "I didn't mean to shoot him, I meant to scare him." "I think you did both."

did you know: While the movie was about people who would look 25 years old until they die, Amanda Seyfried is actually the only significant character who was 25 during filming.

extra bonus points: if you know the significance of many of the main character names.

also listen for: "Is it stealing if it's already stolen?"

disclaimer: there is a bit of violence. (not so much blood and guts, but quite a bit of shoot 'em up) and one makeout scene.

Answer: Many of the character names are those of famous, and not so famous, watchmakers. The name Weis is pronounced the same as the watchmaker Albert Wajs.
