I’d been hearing about this little film that came out last year (2013) called About Time, with Rachel McAdams, Bill Nighy, and Domhnall Gleeson, about a time traveler who falls in love. That’s pretty much all I knew, because anyone who’d tell me about it would say something along the lines of, “It’s about a guy who can travel back in time and he falls in love . . . and it’s so good . . . it’s the best movie I’ve ever seen . . . it’s my favorite movie of all time.
Needless to say, such gushing left me dubious.
Nonetheless, I finally broke down and watched it. You guys, it’s so good.
Fair warning: don’t go into it without a box of Kleenex. It did make me cry, the ugly cry–I may have made noise. For those of you thinking, ‘What’s new?’ Perhaps you’d best take heed from a commenter on YouTube: ‘This movie made me cry . . . Sh*t! I never cry while watching a movie!’
Needless to say, if you’ve not see it, I think you simply must. It’s more than a story about time travel, more than a chick flick. For you see, every once in awhile a film comes along with the potential to change your life–to make you a better person. About Time is one such film . . .
