A 2012 German-American science fiction film written and directed by The Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer. Adapted from the 2004 novel of the same name by David Mitchell, the film has multiple plots set across six different eras, which Mitchell described as "a sort of pointillist mosaic." The official synopsis describes it as "an exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution." Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, and Jim Broadbent lead an ensemble cast. Tribesman Zachry Bailey recounts stories to his grandchildren on an extraterrestrial Earth colony. These stories take place throughout history in various locations: Pacific Islands in 1849, Cambridge/Edinburgh in 1936, San Francisco in 1973, London in 2012, Neo Seoul in 2144, and Big Isle (Hawaii), 106 winters after the Fall in 2321.
Trivia: Number 451 (Luisa Rey's apartment and character Sonmi-451) is a nod to classic science fiction novel Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, which the author named for “the temperature at which book-paper catches fire, and burns.”
