We Live in Time cast

There are only two credited cast members on promotional materials for We Live in Time, but that may be all you need when they are Oscar nominees Andrew Garfield and Florence Pugh.

Garfield is a two-time Oscar nominee for his performances in Hacksaw Ridge and tick, tick… BOOM, but he is also known for his time as Peter Parker/Spider-Man in The Amazing Spider-Man movies, The Social Network and Martin Scorsese's Silence. Most recently he was seen in the limited TV series Under the Banner of Heaven.

Pugh earned her Oscar nomination for her performance in Greta Gerwig's Little Women, but she has also earned raves for movies like Lady Macbeth, Fighting with My Family, Midsommar, Black Widow and Oppenheimer. We Live in Time is her second 2024 movie, as she previously starred in Dune: Part Two.

We Live in Time plot

Nick Payne, who previously wrote The Sense of an Ending, Wanderlust and The Last Letter from Your Lover, penned the We Live in Time script. Here is the official synopsis:

"Almut (Florence Pugh) and Tobias (Andrew Garfield) are brought together in a surprise encounter that changes their lives. Through snapshots of their life together — falling for each other, building a home, becoming a family — a difficult truth is revealed that rocks its foundation. As they embark on a path challenged by the limits of time, they learn to cherish each moment of the unconventional route their love story has taken, in filmmaker John Crowley’s decade-spanning, deeply moving romance."
