This film played at Sundance 2005 in a shorts program. Overall, really solid. Really good production values. Solid direction. But, without doubt, the best thing in this film, and the reason it works is because of the acting.

The performances from the lead actors/actresses were all solid and felt completely believable. Probably my biggest criticism/problem with 'In Time' is the script/story is a little too sentimental for my taste. Just a matter of personal taste I suppose. But, none the less, I think it works.

The crux of the story is about a woman on the eve of her marriage. She loves the man she's about to marry, and they seem like they both adore each other. There's a courting ritual that's at the center of the story, and it's done in fine fashion and with some fun moments. But, the bride-to-be has a secret ... something she's not talking about. This secret is what the story is really all about, and to say anything more would be giving too much away. I imagine this film will be playing at several festivals ... so, if you get the chance, I'd say go watch it.

Seacrest, out!
