* FollowTheLeader: A future dystopia in which society is divided into twelve “time zones” based on wealth, a young person from the poorest time zone leads a revolt against the system, and the elderly (in actual years) representative of the ruling class coldly explains why such brutality is necessary for his zone’s survival and prosperity. Very similar to ''Literature/TheHungerGames''.

** To be fair, she was looking for adventure, given the fact she spent most of her life in a bodyguard covered dome from her father and lazy, decadent society, and a good looking guy who didn't act like everyone else seemed to be interesting enough. Plus, when she finally meets him in person, the guy made everyone hot in their suits by deliberately risking his life in a poker game just to Troll with her father. DatingWhatDaddyHates is also in effect.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: The movie's overt message is anti-capitalist, but they dropped some hints that the real problem is crony capitalism and that the main character's view of the system is simplistic (ie agents of the government physically stop a rich man from paying a ransom directly to a welfare office, because it would give too much Time to the poor). This was arguably an attempt on the part of the writer to be a RuleAbidingRebel, not driving away conservatives.

* UnfortunateImplications: The main villain of the film is an evil financier with the AmbiguouslyJewish surname of Weis. He is actually called a "usurer" in the film. This alludes pretty clearly to some the GreedyJew stereotype.

*** FridgeBrilliance: the fact that certain characters literally don't know how to run is a plot point. It's not surprised they look stupid when forced into it - they've never had to.
