(2015) (Blake Lively, Michiel Huisman) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Romantic Drama: A 107-year-old woman, who hasn't aged in appearance since she was 29, once again must contend with falling for a man she knows with whom she won't be able to grow old.
- Adaline Bowman (BLAKE LIVELY) was born in 1908, but due to a single car accident at the age of 29 in which she plunged into frigid water, clinically died, and was then revived via a lightning bolt, she hasn't aged a day in appearance since. Now 107-years-old, she looks like the granddaughter to her own daughter, Flemming (ELLEN BURSTYN), who appears old enough to be the grandmother in their relationship. Due to her unusual circumstance, Adaline has never let any romantic relationship proceed too far, what with knowing that she'll never be able to grow old with the man. And since she realizes her condition could be of interest to parties without her best interest in mind, she changes her name, physical appearance and address every decade in order not to draw undue attention to herself.
Despite that, and now living once again in San Francisco this time under the alias Jennifer Larson, and with plans to move soon, she has now drawn the eye of Ellis Jones (MICHIEL HUISMAN), a young and handsome philanthropist who doesn't pay heed to any of her signals indicating she's not interested in him. He eventually wears down her defenses and the two become romantically involved.
But when he takes her home for the fortieth wedding anniversary celebration for his parents -- William (HARRISON FORD) and Connie (KATHY BAKER) -- also attended by his young adult sister, Kiki (AMANDA CREW), things head in an unexpected direction when William recognizes Adaline from his past.
