About Time

{5/5} “We’re all traveling through time together, every day of our lives. All we can do is do our best to relish this remarkable ride.”

When Tim turns 21, his father tells him something completely unbelievable: all the men in their family can travel back in time. It’s true, and it’s easy to do: go to a dark place, clench your fists, and think about the time you want to go to. Tim moves to London, and rooms with a playwright friend of his father’s. On a sort of blind date he meets Mary, whom he really likes. But when you travel back in time if you’re not careful you sometimes erase things you didn’t want to erase.

About Time was released in 2013.

It’s a beautiful movie about looking for love, and helping your friends and family.

The two leads are incredibly likeable and you’ll definitely root for them.

There aren’t quite as many laughs as in The Lego Movie but there are many funny moments.

The gentle music is by Nick Laird-Clowes (Battle for Haditha).

Tim is played by Domhnall Gleeson (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows). Mary is played by Rachel McAdams (State of Play) and Tim’s father is played by Bill Nighy (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel).

Richard E. Grant (Gosford Park) and Richard Griffiths (The History Boys) have small cameos — this was Griffiths’ last movie before he died.

The movie was directed by Richard Curtis (Love Actually).
