Storyline

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 Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Trivia

The 1970s era Zippman's grocery (later, "Zippy's", in the 1990s-2000s) serves as a landmark, by which to be passed; when there is a plot twist. See more »

Goofs

At the ending scene when Claire picks up the cloths Alba picks up the shoes that Henry was just wearing as he walked out of the bushes, the shoes have no laces in the holes. That would make it difficult to walk that long distance across the field. See more »

A magical tale that brings a classical theme back to the big screen.
18 August 2009 | by lagergren168See all my reviews

"The Time Traveler's Wife" is a heart-warming love story, and will keep you entertained until the final credits appear. The performances are superb, the pacing is fantastic, and the emotional sensation you experience is easily worth the price of admission.

I recommend anyone looking for a unique love story to see this film. Paying homage to memorable classic such as; "Somewhere in Time" and "It's a Wonderful Life,"it will easily be something that should find a home in your living room shelves.

It emits a cinematic glow that hasn't been seen in years while cleverly conveying an educational message;

"Never let go of the one you love, and cherish him/her always."

Don't let this sparkling gem pass you by...
