WAITING

THE TIME TRAVELER’S WIFE (2009)
– 3 and a half out of 5 stars 

I have to say Rachel McAdams is totally gorgeous!

Anyway, the story revolves around Henry DeTamble and Clare Abshire. Henry has a genetic anomaly that makes him travel through time involuntarily, and he meets Clare on many of his travels. Clare thinks that he’s the one for her and looks forward to building a life with him. However, the relationship is faced with much trouble since he is unable to control his time travelling and Clare is left on her own at times when she needs him most.

The movie can be hilarious at parts; like when you see older Henry helping younger Henry out at his own wedding or whenever Henry tries to find clothes after time travelling. It’s also nice that Henry gets to meet his mother and daughter, both of whom he missed dearly. It’s like one of the few benefits of time travelling that presents itself after realizing that being a time traveler does not contribute towards one’s marriage. The scenes jump from past to present to future, but I didn’t get confused at all – which is a good thing. The ending was different from the book’s but it was much more optimistic though the tears still came down. Loved the movie!
