In 1929, Adaline and her mother visit the Golden Gate Bridge which "three years hence" would be completed. The narrator then states that in February of 1937, there is a construction accident - eight years after 1929. The 1937 date is correct for the Bridge's history, so the original statement is in error.

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.
