After miraculously remaining 29 years old for almost eight decades, Adaline Bowman has lived a solitary existence, never allowing herself to get close to anyone who might reveal her secret. But a chance encounter with charismatic philanthropist Ellis Jones reignites her passion for life and romance.

Adalines' birthday on the fake ID's she picks up at the beginning of the film is actually the same birthday as Blake Lively herself, 25th August, with only one year difference (1986 in the film, Lively is born in 1987 in real life) See more »
Adeline's 1940s-era California driver's permit states that it was issued by the "Motor Vehicle Commission" as authorized by the "Revised Statutes." In the 1940s, a California driver would have been carrying a driver license issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles (established in 1915) as authorized by the Vehicle Code (enacted in 1935 to consolidate older laws enacted in 1913, 1915, and 1923).

Lee Toland Kriger's The Age of Adaline is a superb romantic thanks to its lead duo. Blake Lively is Adaline, the fair immortal who hasn't aged for several decades due to a severe car crash. She goes from relationship to relationship, from town to town, never settling down. A risky chance comes in the form of Ellis (Huisman), a stylish man whose intellect almost matches Adaline's own. Their encounters are warm, humorous and touching. Great support comes from Harrison Ford and Kathy Baker as Ellis' parents. Nudges of surrealism make TAoA vary from the usual romantic stories. Its voice-over, telling Adaline's 'miraculous' tale, is its only downfall. The unknown storyteller attempts to justify Adaline's conditions, but it comes across as a magnificent coincidence instead.
