When Henry DeTamble meets Clare Abshire in a Chicago library they both understand that he is a time traveler, but she knows much more about him as he has not yet been to the times and places where they have already met. He falls in love with her, as she has already with him, but his continuing unavoidable absences while time traveling - and then returning with increasing knowledge of their future - makes things ever more difficult for Clare.Written by

Henry states at the beginning of the movie that he tried to prevent the car accident that killed his mother but he could never make it in time. The fact that he could have to warned his mother against driving the car on that particular hapless night on several occasions before the accident remains a glaring omission. He could have called her on the phone, passed the message through young Clare or in fact warned her in person when he met her on the train three years before the accident or all of the above and anything else.

I had read the book three times when it first came out, so I was excited when I got tickets to an advance screening. I was just hoping they didn't ruin the book. I know films can't be like the books, so I carefully did not re-read it.
They did an awesome job with the film. They captured the story, the flavor, the essence of the book, even if they did have to leave some things out. I loved the girls playing Alba.
There was laughing at the funny parts and some crying at the sad. My sister loved it. She had no intentions of reading it and only went because I had tickets. She was sniffly when we left and now has the book.
Notice to guys who like blow em ups. This is a romantic chick flick! Though the one guy I had talked to in line was crying as we left. He did say he loved it.
I would have given it a nine if some of the scenes hadn't been filmed in the dark like a lot of Hollywood.
