It’s been months of dodging this movie and resisted watching this but I had to give in.
Age of Adaline is a story of Adaline who never age after she had an accident and a lightning struck her. This stars Blake Lively, Game of Thrones Michiel Huisman, Harrison Ford, Ellen Burstyn and many others. It is also directed by Lee Toland Krieger.
I am impressed about how the movie is entertaining. It is a love story/drama and Blake Lively really did great in portraying the character and nailed the right acting needed as Adaline. I only saw the character and it was engaging as though she really existed and felt her burden as well of always running away to escape from society’s scrutiny of her once they know of her secret while also seeing her daughter growing up without Adaline by her side and sacrificing her happiness and her ultimate attainment of love.
The chemistry between her and Michiel is really evident. Harrison Ford’s performance is also believable as you can also feel his pain and longing when he saw and met Adaline/Jenny again for a long time. The screenplay was properly done and it was perfectly echoed to those who did the cinematography as they neatly sets the tone for each scenes. I don’t know exactly about the accuracy of the scientific phenomenon but it was a great premise to build the story around.
I will give the movie 3 out of 5 stars as the movie could be more interesting if they allowed to have more emphasis to the story’s conflict and twist and give more time between Adaline and William because I think those scenes are juicier but the movie is still good though.
