A few incidents that happen at 11:14pm in the town of Middleton are seen from five different perspectives, each of the players who generally works toward self interest, not caring about the consequence to other people, and in the process exacerbating the situations by his or her actions. Jack, in town to meet someone, is a chronic drinker and driver, he still doing so despite having his license temporarily suspended. Teens Mark, Eddie and Tim are out for a joyride in Mark's van, they generally causing havoc all in the name of having fun... that is until something goes wrong. Frank, out for a walk with his dog, stumbles across something which makes him jump to a conclusion about his daughter, to who he is both over-protective and overly trusting. Duffy, who works as a clerk at Lloyd's EZZZ Stop convenience store, goes to the store just as it is closing to ask his friend, the clerk on duty, Buzzy, for a favor, which may be difficult for her to grant based on her own needs. And Cheri is ... 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.
