Abstract

The purpose of this research is to describe the effects of alienation and the efforts of the characters to overcome the alienation in In Time movie.. The writer chooses this movie as the main data because it deals with the financial capital that becomes the most important aspect to determine the social identity. This movie takes the setting in 2169 when the people use time as their currency or money. The method of this research is descriptive qualitative and the theory used is Marxist theory that deals with alienation consisting of the product of labor, act of production within the labor process, man’s species-being, or the estrangement of man from man. Relating to the problem statements, the functions of the theory are to identify the effects of alienation on the characters and to analyze the characters’ efforts to overcome the alienation in In Time movie. Based on the analysis of this research, the writer draws a conclusion that the alienation affects the characters’ psychology. The first is Will Salas. He experiences the four stages of alienation. The psychological effects are powerlessness, meaninglessness, and isolation. Then, Rachel Salas experiences the second stage and the fourth stage of alienation. Those stages affect her psychologically. The effects are dissatisfaction and powerless. The last is Sylvia Weis who experiences the second stage and the third stage of alienation. It makes Sylvia feel powerless and meaningless in her life. The next is the way to overcome the characters’ alienation to crash the relation of the capitalist system by fulfilling the basic needs of people in the Ghetto. The effort is embargoing the capitalist system by using the capitalist’s capital. The two characters, Will and Sylvia, steal and rob the capitalist, Phillip. They are successful in taking one million years from Phillip and distribute the stolen time to the citizens in the Ghetto. Consequently, the capitalists cannot protect their system. In this state of chaos, the characters, Will and Sylvia, take over their position and replace them.
