In Time (film) – futuristic socialism [Moral Resource]

Food for thought on whether social justice and redistribution of wealth are really the Moral remedy for economic disparity. (This film is rated PG-13 for violence, sexual content, and language [non-pervasive].)

In the not too distant future, time literally is money. Genetic ‘advancement’ has allowed humans to stop aging at 25, but one must work to earn additional time to live beyond that age.

It’s no surprise that the wealthy are shown as cold and heartless and unwilling to share their disposable time. The less fortunate represented by Will (Justin Timberlake) and his wealthy but sympathizing girlfriend Sylvia (Amanda Seyfried) attempt to equalize the economic disparity.
