Trivia

In order to create a sense of authenticity for shots set in the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s, filmmakers used anamorphic lenses and limited the use of steadicams. See more »

Goofs

Before Adaline/Jenny gets the last Trivial Pursuit question "for the win", you can see that her playing piece is missing the blue wedge. The last roll of the dice is a 2 which would not bring her playing piece to the blue headquarters square where she could collect the blue wedge. And even if it had, you don't win immediately after having collected all 6 wedges. You're supposed to go to the hub of the board and answer a final question. See more »

A beautiful film
30 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

Excellent performances, a truly poignant story. See it, you won't be disappointed.

Director Lee Toland Krieger wisely speeds through the scientific mumbo-jumbo, treating it as the least-interesting aspect of this tale. Instead, he focuses on the relationship fallout of Adaline's predicament. It's a disarmingly affecting film, and very sad at points. A rumination on loneliness. Cinematically, Krieger serves up numerous arching, overhead shots and slow-motion sequences. This coupled with the various time periods tackled gives the picture a buoyant sense of scope.

Particularly memorable in this is Harrison Ford. After stiff and stagey efforts in movies such as "42," Ford delivers a beautifully conflicted performance as a man trying to reconcile his past.

Highly recommended.
