About Time 2013 9+ out of 10 (Time Travel Movie # 9)

About Time 2013   9+ out of 10

I didn't have huge expectations for this movie going in.  I hadn't watched the trailer and recorded it based on the fact that it was a Time Travel movie, one of my favorite movie genres (which we recently did a podcast about).   This was a Romantic Comedy Time Travel movie so I didn't know what to expect.   I absolutely love it.

The Cast
The movie stars Domhnall Gleeson (Ex Machina and The Force Awakens),  Bill Nighy  (Love Actually) and Rachell McAdams (Insert Romantic Comedy here).    This cast was absolutely terrific.  Rachel McAdams was a delight and so adorable as the girl he falls in love with.   Domhnall gave a great and layered performance and Bill Nighy was his awesome witty self.  The film was written by Richard Harris who once again (like with Love Actually) has made a nearly perfect story.

The Story 
At age 21 the main character learns from his father that the men of the family have the ability to Time Travel and change things in his life.  All he has to do is go into a closet and basically wish himself back in time in order to make his life better.   He uses this ability to get a girlfriend.  The movie has funny scenes and touching scenes. It is basically a love story about life itself.   The main character learns to embrace life and its ups and downs.  To appreciate everything and take nothing for granted.  This was a fun simple little film with good dialogue and it touched me.  The concept was intriguing and made for an absolutely surprising and wonderful film.  I would highly recommend this for anyone that loved Love Actually as it draws on emotions like that film.   I'd also recommend this to Time Travel fans, since it was a new and interesting twist on the genre.
