About Time

Reviewed By: Kevin

After turning 21, Tim (played by Domhnall Gleeson) is told by his Dad (played by the ever brilliant Bill Nighy) that the men of the family have always been able to travel back in time. Tim first decides to use this unlikely ability to find a girlfriend. Such a romantic science-fiction plot could go wrong so easily, spiraling into cheesy antics and worn-out clichés. Instead, the filmmakers take us on a thoughtful, touching odyssey where we find ourselves connecting with the characters and are rewarded not only with such themes as the magic of romance but also the connection between fathers and sons and even a few lessons on the art of happy living. This film was a delight and one that I will enjoy watching again.

Overall Rating: B+
