"The world has changed in the last century. Adaline has not."

A beautiful widow and young mother (Lively) has ceased to age naturally since surviving a car accident, living as a constant 29-year-old, changing identity regularly to avoid suspicion, thus unable to form lasting relationships, but her resolve is severely tested when she meets a handsome, persistent entrepreneur (Huisman).

Mostly set in modern-day San Francisco, this is a wildly romantic (with a capital "R"), period-feel melodrama, accompanied by a precise, nostalgic-sounding narration, that revolves around a charming couple whose impossible liaison you want desperately to work out.

Blast-from-the-past Ford and aged daughter Burstyn are great in support, with YouTuber Ingruber a real find as a youthful Ford (similar looks, matching voice).

Blu-ray Extras: Documentary, Featurettes, Deleted Scenes. *** (6/10)

Not a Romance

I had to stop watching because the "romance" was so offensive and unrealistic. A man finds our leading lady alone at a party and cracks a terrible joke, the type that only works for handsome leading men, and only in movies. She engages in a brief conversation, but gives him zero indication of interest and soon extricates herself from the situation. Later, after she steps into an elevator, a large hand stops the elevator door from shutting. It is our leading man, of course, and he gets on, and makes a crack about how that'll teach him for putting his hand where it doesn't belong. Ew. She's trapped on an elevator with a man who just made an icky sex joke. She continues to show zero interest. He follows her to her cab, and AGAIN puts his hand somewhere it doesn't belong, this time grabbing the open window to stop the cab and try again to get her phone number. She doesn't give it to him.

But lo and behold, he shows up at her job. He's going to donate some valuable books, but not if she won't give him her phone number. WHAAT?? So finally she acquiesces and he takes her on a date. Guess where? To an underground tunnel.

This is the point when I turned it off. Because what woman in her right mind would go alone with a man she barely knew, who has been nothing but sexually aggressive AND controlling, into a dark tunnel with no one around? And are we the viewers really supposed to find this romantic?

No wonder why so many men appear to be so confused about sexual harassment. Here is a movie where a man sexually harasses a woman who shows no sign of interest, but oops! She was just playing hard to get!

Men, this is not how it works in real life. For the record, if you have just met a woman and would like to get to know her, and she has shown no sexual interest in you, probably it is not a good idea to make a joke about putting your hand where it doesn't belong. And all those things that came after that? DON'T DO THOSE THINGS.

What a turnoff.

Nice and new story.

The movie's idea is nice andvery new to me. There are many parts that I liked very much, but there are also many other parts whom were very boring! There was also some parts that were very exaggerated to be used which don't suit the story's events at all.
