Plot: Inspired by true events, 96 minutes is the story of four young lives slammed together in one shocking moment.

With no adults to guide them, they're left on their own to try to survive not only this night, but the complex reality of the world they live in. Runtime: 93 mins Release Date: 31 Dec 2010
A story about a situation with no way out (by rez-7-99739)
This is an incredible movie, it has similar themes to crash and boyz n the hood but totally stands apart as a masterful film in its own right. The characters find themselves in a very difficult situation with no easy choices, and potentially devastating consequences to bad decisions that don't have much time to be made. The conflict in the mind of each character is very well explored by a great script and careful editing that moves between back story and real time. It's very moving but also thrilling, keeping the tension tight throughout with powerful performances from a strong cast <more>
and an excellent music score. The film also has a great look to it, lush, cinematic and gritty at the same time, as though "The Wire" was made for the big screen. If you want a hard dose of thought provoking reality without preachiness, and want to be moved and entertained at the same time, you will love this film.
I thought this movie was going to be a thriller, but I couldn't believe what a great drama it was! The story is really compelling and really draws you in. You think you know where the story is going because of all the flashbacks, but there were several twists and turns that I did not see coming, and by the end I was biting my nails trying to figure out how it would all play out.The acting in this movie was simply superb, really heart wrenching. I haven't seen a lot of Brittany Snow's other work I saw Hairspray, and obviously this character was way different than her character in <more>
Hairspray but I was really impressed by what a great job she did in this movie, she seemed very comfortable with her character and wasn't really "acting" at all. Of course the other actors were great as well, I was just especially impressed with Brittany. The other thing that really stuck out for me in a good way was the music in this movie. The score was beautiful and really helped underscore the drama that was happening on screen. And did you notice the way that songs subtly tie together two scenes and two story lines ? Overall it's a great movie with a lot of heart, and I can't wait to see it again!
Like another film CRASH, 96 MINUTES tackles the subject of race, gangs, and inner- city lifestyles. It is heartbreaking in it's execution of the story. Two young females, whom are approaching college graduation are out with friends when the are approached by a man with a gun demanding their car keys. After one women is shot and is nearing death, they are put into the car, and brought along with men. Sounds pretty simple, but the use of non- linear story telling used to tell the back story on the two females, and their two captors is very compelling. By the end you realize that the women <more>
aren't the only ones thrown into a bad situation. Dre, one of the "villains", brought much sympathy to his character. It's really an intense character study on the mind of this kid, who seemingly has his life on track until this night. In the aftermath, when Carly is in the visiting room at the prison, my heart went out to both characters, both sides of the glass. Actions and choices are everything, and the quickest decisions can change and ruin your life. Very well done film, certainly deserves a better release than it got.
An edge of your seat film that has a new perspective on what it is to come of age today. (by liveunabashedly)
I saw this at sxsw and can't stop thinking about it. I work at an inner city school part time and the way this film portrayed the life our kids are living, the oppressive messages they receive and choices they face everyday was so eerily true to life that I just can't shake it. It's a thriller, don't get me wrong, it has your guts in knots the entire time, but there is so much more to it. It has such compassion for all the characters even as it portrays them doing terrible things. The acting is outstanding, especially Evan Ross who plays Dre and although we don't get to <more>
spend enough time with any of the individual characters I would have liked to know more about the girls especially we're still drawn in to each of their stories which is ultimately what makes us care about what happens to them in the end. The various story lines are skillfully woven together in a visually arresting manor that brings something new to the multiple storyline genre. A lot of the themes are familiar, but they are handled in a new and fresh way that rings true to life. It is a very intense film so you have to like that kind of thing, but I would recommend this film to anyone. It will get you thinking.
Intense, true story, good performances (by lynn115642)
This film kept me on the edge of my seat! It cuts back and forth between four young people who are all struggling with adulthood responsibilities while being from different ethnic, social, and economic backgrounds. The contrast is really what made it interesting, and how they all came together on this terrible night.The performance by Evan Ross won him an a much deserved award at SXSW, and Jonathan Michael Trautmann also did a wonderful job. His presence on screen was frightening, and I was actually unsure of what his character was capable of. Brittany Snow is also worth mentioning, as I felt <more>
this was a very different role for her and she wore it well.All around, this film is definitely worth a watch. It's based on a true story and says a lot about adolescence, poverty, and the social classes of today.
Buckle up. It's about to get heavy. (by minneapolisraised)
This film is absolutely remarkable. The acting is elite, the soundtrack keeps you engaged even through those moments where you want to turn away. and the direction and script is beyond stellar. Brittany Snow gives a powerful performance and your heart screams for her character the entire time. Evan Ross balances a soulful excitement with a mixed toughness and his eyes never cease to keep you engaged. He definitely earned his Breakthrough Performance Award @ SXSW. Christian Serratos breaks out and shows you exactly how a serious bad day escalates into ultimate terror. J.Michael Trautmann is a <more>
G. Fact. And David Oyelowo commands the screen as Duane with a heart felt humility and real world understanding.Aimee Lagos has put together an instant classic, based on true events from East St. Louis and set in the beautiful city of Atlanta, GA. She takes you on a non linear ride that refuses to allow you the chance to get comfortable, while keeping your attention glued to the screen. Michael Fimognari shoots a beautiful film and as soon as he establishes a moment, they tear away to another plot point in the day between these 4 kids and the surrounding worlds each group inhabits.I recommend this film to anyone who enjoys a good film and is willing to allow the film to affect them beyond the visual and audio of the story. This film will grab you, shake you and leave you thinking hard on the different levels we all experience and deal with in our lives. An amazing and exceptional work.
I was fortunate enough to catch this at SxSW a few weeks ago and it's continued to stick with me. I can see the obvious comparison to CRASH although it's a bit unfounded as this movie really didn't seem to be about race at all to me. It just felt like it was about four kids struggling to make their way. Four kids who were all searching for something. Sure their circumstances were different and so they were searching for different things, but what unified them was that they were all just looking to be accepted by their families or their peers. To me, that's a universal story <more>
and one that lots of people can relate to. Evan Ross and Brittany Snow gave really amazing performances - well beyond what we've seen of them previously and both stand out to me a real talents to watch. The movie isn't perfect and I'm sure some will find it to be on the nose, but that's only because so many people don't have the life experience to know that this is the way it goes. I've worked in a shelter for homeless youth for several years and the stories these kids tell me are not too dissimilar. I would encourage all of those who see the themes as stereotypical to get outside of their own box for 2 minutes and spend some time with those who will you give example after example of how the youth in this country still struggle with the same things as they did 10, 20, and 30 years ago.
I don't normally write reviews, but I'm annoyed with films on IMDb rating as 50/50, that turn out to be worth watching. Other reviewers have complained about the flash back narrative being confusing, it's not - so make your own judgement about the reviewers in question. Also reviewers believe 'the story line is unrealistic' and if modern society was like this we're in trouble; well this is supposed to based around real events and we are in trouble, anyone who doesn't know that needs to open their eyes. Yes the acting is a little wooden in places, but if the real <more>
life events took place as illustrated - it's a touching homage to those who have suffered. Respect to the film makers also, some of the more potentially dramatic and harrowing scenes have been skipped over, removing unnecessary sensationalism.
THEY'RE NOT WHERE YOU'RE FROM. THEY'RE WHERE YOU'VE BEEN. (by nogodnomasters)
The movie opens with a night time scene of 4 youths riding in a car looking for a hospital because one of the girls is shot in the face. The shooter is also in the car and doesn't want to go to jail. We then flash back to the separate lives of the 4 individuals, in far too typical indie fashion, to see what they were doing that day and how their lives came together.Carley Brittany Snow is a pre-law student who has father issues. She is a driver and wants to graduate with honors. Lena Christian Serratos has decided to leave her uncaring boyfriend Michael Adam Trahan . Dre Evan Ross <more>
is in college and an escapee from a bad neighborhood. He thinks of himself as being part of the gang, when really he is a good kid. Kevin Jonathan Michael Trautmann is a white boy with an abusive home life. He will do anything to join a gang.The film has good acting and a decent plot. The production seems to be aimed at helping would-be gangstas who are still in school and not old white guys like me. If you like the indie style, give it a view.F-bomb, no sex, no nudity.
