- Interviewer: Which has more wire-work, Spidey or The Social Network?
- Andrew Garfield: What’s funny is in that scene where I smash the computer, I had my hands attached to a wire because I got so tired. I had a whole rigging team with wires lifting my hands like puppeteers.
- Interviewer: Wait, what?
- Andrew Garfield: Also I was too lazy to walk, so they put wires on my toes and heels when I needed to walk backwards. There was a scene where I flew, which I’m sure will be on the DVDs. I’m so mad at Mark, I flew at him in a rage.
- Interviewer: Oh you’re joking. Damn your dry British wit. You had me. You’re a good actor.
- Andrew Garfield: Yeah, I’m good on the phone.

I was on my bike in London the other day, and it was a really cool moment that happened… It was a busy street in East London, and there was a guy who was outside a pub and he was drinking a beer and he saw me, and he went like this [salutes]. And I was like — I was riding on my bike, and I was like [salutes]. That was like, the best interaction with a stranger I think I’ve ever had in my life. [x]

Catherine Bell (Gillan) is a beautiful and kind young woman. She has red hair and hazel eyes. She grew up in Scotland and moved to London three years ago, where she now works as a receptionist in a cardiac rehabilitation clinic. But the most important thing about Catherine Bell is that she knows when she is going to die. This is because she has a tattoo on the inside of her wrist of the exact time and date of her death.
In an alternate world where people are given the span of their lives the moment they are born, Catherine Bell lives with the knowledge that her life will end on the 1st of March in the year 2012. Catherine has always had the intention of getting through her days as peacefully and contentedly as possible, even with only six months left to live, since she has never had the luxury or impulse to be particularly adventurous. This all changes when she meets Peter (Garfield), a handsome young man with a charming smile and honest eyes who waits at the reception area twice a week when he brings his ailing father (Downey Jr.) to the clinic where she works. When Catherine realizes that she and Peter have the exact same set of numbers inked into their wrists, she feels a connection and empathy for Peter and makes it her goal to befriend him. They soon fall into an easy friendship; Peter tells Catherine about his father and his plans for the next few months of his life, making Catherine question whether or not she ought to make grand plans for her last days as well.
But the day soon comes that Peter’s father passes away just as the numbers on his wrist had predicted, and Peter does not return to the clinic for weeks. The next time that he does, he comes with his bags packed, and the intention to make the most out of the last few months of his life. He wants to travel and see the world, and he asks Catherine to come with him – a proposition that she can’t quite bring herself to say no to. The both of them soon find themselves swept off on a journey to see how far they can go before their time runs out. Along the way they find adventure, love, and the realization that it isn’t that easy to run away from yourself.
