In Time directed by Andrew Niccol

Andrew Niccol’s film In Time will be released in October and he seems in familiar territory if you take a look at this short article from Amy Kaufman. Niccol describes In Time as “Gattaca revisited”.

Take a glance at Andrew Niccol’s body of work, and it becomes apparent that the filmmaker is interested in exploring otherworldly realities.

The first movie he wrote and directed, 1997’s “Gattaca,” presented a society in which children are born with only their parents’ strongest hereditary traits — creating an environment in which people are judged by their gene pools. A few years later, he made “S1m0ne,” a 2002 film about a computer-generated woman who becomes a famous actress.
