Self/less movie quotes tell the story of how one wealthy man is offered seamless immortality, or so it initially seems. The science fiction thriller was written by David and Àlex Pastor and directed by Tarsem Singh. Self/less opened in theaters in the United States on July 10, 2015.

In Self/less, Damian (Ben Kingsley) is an incredibly successful and wealthy businessman who is aging and dying of cancer. He's pitched to by Professor Albright (Matthew Goode) who offers him a chance at immortality. See Professor Albright claims to have a way to put Damian's conscience into a younger body, a complete empty vessel, allowing Damian to continue to enjoy his life for decades to come.

Damian agrees and undergoes the procedure, waking up in a new man's (Ryan Reynolds) body. At first he enjoys the life, but it doesn't take long for Damian to have visions from the memories of the man's body he now inhabits, including of the man's wife (Natalie Martinez) and child. As the lines between who he really is continues to blur, Damian becomes a threat to Professor Albright out of fear Damian will expose the organization. This makes survival and the promised immortality, extremely difficult.

Self/less joins theaters which are already showing films such as Minions Terminator Genisys, Magic Mike XXL and Ted 2.
