In Time is an American dystopian science fiction action film released in 2011, that was written, directed and produced by Andrew Niccol.[1] The film stars Justin Timberlake, Cillian Murphy, Olivia Wilde and Amanda Seyfried.[2]

Plot

In a dystopian future, time really is money and the wealthy are able to live forever.

When Will Salas (Timberlake) saves a man from time thieves and is gifted a century of time, he suddenly has a lot more life left to live. That is until he is falsely accused of murder and must go on the run, taking along the daughter of a wealthy man (Seyfried) with him.

Transhumanist Elements

The film heavily features longevity as a key plot point. People who run out of time drop dead, time thieves try to steal more, and the wealthy are the beneficiaries of an oligarchic/wealth inequality advantage.
