About Time (2013)

Director: Richard Curtis

Stars: Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams, Bill Nighy, Lydia Wilson, Tom Hollander

At the age of 21, Tim Lake discovers he can travel in time. The night after another unsatisfactory New Year party, Tim's father tells his son that the men in his family have always had the ability to travel through time. Tim can't change history, but he can change what happens and has happened in his own life, so he decides to make his world a better place, by getting a girlfriend. Sadly, that turns out not to be as easy as you might think. Moving from the Cornwall coast to London to train as a lawyer, Tim finally meets the beautiful but insecure Mary. They fall in love, then an unfortunate time-travel incident means he's never met her at all. So they meet for the first time again-and again-but finally, after a lot of cunning time-traveling, he wins her heart.

This was a pretty sweet movie. It was a pretty simple story will several small twist and turns throughout the whole movie. It is not annoying at all. This movie makes you think about life and your past. People say if they could go back and change one small thing in their life, they would. They never think about how their present and future would change. This movie takes a look at that concept.

This movie was shot beautifully. It looks so clear and nice. The acting was really good. It almost seemed real at some points. There was nothing that was really disappointing about this movie at all. 
The story was interesting without being beat over the head with it. There is no real out of this world scenario that happen to anyone in the movie.

This was an outright romantic love story. It have been a long time that one of these has really come out, that I know of. It was a really good sweet movie. I would almost watch this movie again. Enjoy.
