This film actually reminds me of Lake House for the impossibility of the premises presented in the film, but I am somehow delighted by Rachel McAdams’ effortless acting, which is still as powerful as we’ve seen it in 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, adapted 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 judging it to be a little overbearing and ridiculous, but it is actually a feel-good film that you can enjoy watching with your loved ones.
