It is a frequently asked question whether Harrison Ford dubbed the voice of his character's younger self. The answer is no; Anthony Ingruber really is that good of a Ford sound-alike. He first gained public attention from his impressions on his YouTube channel. See more »
Although this film is set in San Francisco, USA, at the beginning of the film where we see Adaline gets off the cab just outside Tony's apartment, there is a Canadian flag clearly visible far away in the background (top right of the frame), indicating that the actual filming location is Vancouver, Canada.

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.
