Director: Robert Schwentke

Novel’s Author: Audrey Niffenegger

Screenplay: Jeremy Leven, Bruce Joel Rubin

Starring: Eric Bana, Rachel McAdams, Ron Livingston

This film actually reminds me of Lake House for the impossibility of the premises presented on the film but I am somehow delighted by Rachel McAdams’ effortless acting which is still as powerful as we’ve seen it on the Notebook. The depth of her love for her time traveler’s husband (Eric Bana) is so surreal that It’s almost heartbreaking.

The movie adopted from the book with the same title by Audrey Niffenegger experimented with human relationships and how revisiting the past could actually make you happy, heal some wounds and go on with the future.

The impossibility of it is what makes it special. After watching the film, you’d be asking a lot of questions and easily judge it to be a little overbearing and ridiculous but it is actually a feel good film that you can enjoy watching with your love ones.
