In Time

(PG-13) ★★★☆☆

In this sci-fi thriller, time is the new currency, spent and borrowed like money. Each person’s forearm is digitally stamped with a countdown clock. Just before committing suicide, a stranger gifts Will (Justin Timberlake) 100 years. A lawman (Cillian Murphy) suspects Will of murder. On the run, Will takes a rich man’s daughter (Amanda Seyfried) hostage and the duo goes Robin Hooding. Writer-director Andrew Niccol has a good premise, but his technique is lacking.

Crazy, Intelligent, Love

Like Crazy is an endearing film about intelligent young people (what a relief) and the resilience it takes for their love to overcome geography. Anna (enchanting Felicity Jones) is a British college student with the most beguiling eyes since Jean Simmons, earning credits for a series of writing courses in California. Jacob (Anton Yelchin) studies furniture design and lives with his widowed Mom. They’re both only children who find in each other the humor, caring, togetherness and sense of belonging they never had before.
