Two weeks ago we introduced What to Rent This Weekend, a Redblog feature where we ask Redbox employees to suggest a movie our customers can check out after the work week is through. The staff pick from earlier this month was Courageous. What will it be this time around? Ooh, the anticipation!
Name: Amy Hill
Redbox Role: Redbox Customer Care—I support Redbox customers through online chat and emails
Amy’s Pick: In Time, starring Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried and Cillian Murphy
This movie gives new meaning to the phrase “I didn’t get it done in time,” because in this movie’s world, that could mean your life!
In Time depicts just how short life truly is, and how we, as humans, take for granted each second we are given. Set in a futuristic world where society does not use money as currency anymore—but rather actual time—the rich are afforded the luxury to live forever. Yet, the poor struggle to keep their time going second by second. Sounds pretty familiar, huh? I was incredibly moved, sometimes to tears (get the tissue box ready, ladies!), to see how each character related to their ‘time’ and how they used their ‘time.’ Even the men will enjoy this mind-twister for a date-night flick! I would also recommend families with older children rent this one for a family movie night (it’s rated PG-13). We all can take a page from this movie to reinvest in the short time we each have to spend with each other.
Thanks for the tip, Amy!
