Directed by Lee Toland Krieger, “The Age of Adaline” is a very unique and creative film, it will keep the viewer entertained but the movie is nothing spectacular.
“The Age of Adaline” follows a woman named Adaline Bowman (Blake Lively) who was born in 1908 and grew up to marry the man of her dreams. Sadly, he dies in an accident during the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and leaves Adaline and her young daughter, Flemming alone.
One night on her way to pick up her daughter, Adaline is caught in an extremely rare snowfall which causes her to slide off the side of the road and into a lake.
At that moment lightning strikes her car, which causes her to remain 29 years old forever.
After 78 years of moving and running away from the authorities, to escape becoming a medical curiosity, and losing the ones she loves, Adaline meets Ellis Jones, (Michiel Huisman) a wealthy man who falls in love with her.
Ellis takes Adaline to meet his parents (Harrison Ford and Kathy Baker), and his father turns out to be one of Adaline’s former lovers, leaving everyone in a very awkward situation.
Though it may not be for everyone, because of its mellow nature, “The Age of Adaline” captures the audience’s attention and is able to keep it throughout its duration.
