The 2011 film, 96 Minutes follows the story of four young adults in Atlanta, Georgia whose lives intersect during the course of one evening. The film stars Brittany Snow as Carley, a college student who is getting ready to graduate and start her life as an adult. Evan Ross plays Dre, a young man who is struggling to make a better life for himself outside of his troubled past. Sharon Conley plays Carla, a single mother who works hard to provide for her son but is constantly worried about his safety.

The film opens with Carley preparing to leave a party with her best friend Lena (played by Christian Serratos). As they make their way to Carley’s car, we see Dre, who is in the process of carjacking another vehicle. The film then jumps back in time, showing us how each of the four characters ended up at this point in their lives.

Carley, who is struggling with the pressure of graduating and finding a job, meets up with Lena to blow off some steam at a party. Lena suggests they go to a more exclusive party, where they can meet some influential people who might be able to help Carley find a job. At this party, Carley and Lena run into Dre, who is trying to escape the violence of his old neighborhood and make a new life for himself. Dre invites Carley and Lena to join him and his friend Kevin (played by J. Michael Trautmann) for a drive around the city.

Carla, who is at work at a gas station, meets a young man named Kevin who is friendly and charming. She tells him about her worries for her son and how she wishes he could have a better life. Kevin seems to care and offers Carla a ride home from work. She accepts the ride, but we soon find out that Kevin is not as innocent as he seems.

As the four characters’ lives intersect, they find themselves involved in a carjacking that quickly turns violent. The film then switches between the events leading up to the carjacking and the aftermath of the crime as the four characters are forced to confront the consequences of their actions.

96 Minutes is a powerful film that explores the themes of race, class, and violence in modern-day America. The film shows how these issues affect the lives of young people, particularly those who are struggling to break free from difficult circumstances. The film is well-acted, particularly by Brittany Snow and Evan Ross, who give strong performances in their roles.

One of the strengths of the film is its use of nonlinear storytelling. By jumping back and forth in time, the film creates tension and suspense as the audience watches the characters’ lives slowly unravel. The film also avoids easy categorization and refuses to offer simple solutions to the problems its characters face. Instead, it asks its audience to consider the complex factors that lead to violence and crime in our society.

Overall, 96 Minutes is a gripping and thought-provoking film that tackles tough issues with honesty and sensitivity. It is a must-see for anyone interested in social issues and the human experience.

96 Minutes is a 2011 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 33 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.7 and a MetaScore of 51.
