I just saw the trailer for the movie In Time, which wasn’t exactly a blockbuster. However, the trailer is great. (Does anyone else feel like the people who make trailers are more talented than those who make movies?) This is a sci-fi movie about a world where the rich can live forever and the poor die young, because they don’t get more time allotted to them by the powers that be. Justin Timberlake, who is poor and supposed to die (I gather, please keep in mind I’ve only seen the trailer) busts free from this conspiracy and escapes with a rich woman, who can live forever. He asks her: “How can you live with yourself, watching people die right next to you?” To which she replies: “You don’t watch. You close your eyes.”
Perhaps this was a little more dramatic with the gritty soundtrack playing in the background but I thought there’s some truth there for how we live.
