At the age of 21, Tim discovers he can travel in time and change what happens and has happened in his own life. His decision to make his world a better place by getting a girlfriend turns out not to be as easy as you might think. (IMDb)
Rarely is there a movie that can successfully span across multiple genres and multiple audiences simultaneously. About Time is a love story between Man and Wife, father and son, while also a story about life's journeys. It also includes tidbits of suspense (in the non-horror fashion) in that you don't always know what he (Tim - Domhnall Gleeson) will do when travelling back in time.
At first I though it would be much life a Nicholas Sparks story, or a British version of The Time Traveler's Wife--which it is (both) in ways. However, it is so much more than either (type of) movie could be!
While the Brits can be snobby, overly proper gits, they surely can make a film. One that you'll want to watch again and again to travel back and learn more about life. A beautiful movie that is well-deserving of each of the five stars I give it. Then again, this is the writer of movies such as Notting Hill, Love Actually, and Four Weddings and a Funeral.
Hats off to a one Mr.Richard Curtis.
