I was working on a full day of painting, and it always helps to put in a movie to give the brain something else to think about. The Age of Adaline (2015) was one I sort-of remember hearing, “That’s a good one,” but then it passed off my radar. I noticed it at the library, and added it to my stack of, “Maybe one of these will be good,” hopefuls.
Wow, what a knock-out of a romantic fantasy. I loved it.
Adaline was born in 1908, and through a fluke of luck, ended up not aging past 29. She has all the knowledge of the past 100 years, but no one to share it with because early experience taught her not to share her fate with anyone.
I found it a treat to hear the wisdom of an old-lady coming out of the mouth of a young one. Put this one on your “maybe” list, and then remember to watch it.
