As always, clicky for the original piece!
Age of Adaline really touched me. Perhaps because it had its heart in the right place, and didn’t shy away from the problems someone would have hiding the fact that s/he doesn’t age as the decades go by. Soppy, and a bit of a rehash of the usual navel-gazing about never growing old? Yes. But I liked it. You can thank the killer performances, and the focus on characters living with these big questions rather than the big questions themselves. And I really want Adaline’s wardrobe. All of it.
A sweet film about a scared lady who never aged past 29. Decades later she finds true love, but will she go for it? Kinda soppy (as you’d expect), but all in good romantic-fantasy fun. Beautiful set design and costuming, and touching performances from Blake Lively, Ellen Burstyn, and Harrison Ford. Grade: B+
