Tells the seemingly random yet vitally connected story of a set of incidents that all converge one evening at 11:14pm. The story follows the chain of events of five different characters and five different storylines that all converge to tell the story of murder and deceit. Written by
Supposedly, Cheri's story takes place in 20 minutes, assuming the clocks are correct. But from her introduction at 10:54 until 11:14, what we see happens in about 18 minutes. This means that in that extra two minutes, Cheri had time to hook up jumper cables and do a jump, make two car trips and run from her house to the cemetery and back, among other things. See more »

Worthwhile - Can't believe it's not more widely known
This is one of those movies that you really ought to see. We rented it based on the back cover, and we were glad we did. 11:14 has been compared to Crash and Memento. We haven't seen Crash, but it looks like we should, and while I thought that 11:14 was not quite as terrific as Memento, I felt it was definitely in the running with it.
I came to IMDb to see what else this guy, Greg Marcks, has done and was surprised to see that the only other entry is a 19 minute short film. How on earth did he get stars such as Patrick Swayze and Hillary Swank? If you do decide to see this movie, DO NOT WATCH THE TRAILER FIRST. What a rotten trailer. The trailer gives away virtually the entire plot.
