About Time (2013)


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…

Romantic comedy written and directed by Richard Curtis, starring Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams, Bill Nighy, Tom Hollander, Lydia Wilson, Lindsay Duncan, Joshua McGuire and Richard Cordery.

Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill, Love Actually, The Boat That Rocked and the Bridget Jones’s Diary movies are part of my ideal video library, and I’ve watched them again and again. So it’s was natural for me to go and watch About Time, which is not just a romantic comedy, but a beautiful story about family, love and loss. I didn’t care if the storyline about time travelling was full of “plot holes”. I know that I spent 2 hours with great actors and I have to say that Tom Hollander as the obnoxious play writer was absolutely fantastic.

One thought on “About Time (2013)”

  1. I absolutely loved this movie. I saw it back in August, when it was released in the UK and couldn’t wait for it to come out in America, so that all of my friends could see it. It’s such a beautiful and sweet story.
