The Age of Adaline (2015) Review


Verdict: Fell short

Cool concept with great acting and cinematography but horrible narration.


Adaline Bowman (Blake Lively) was born in the early 20th century, and at the age of 29 is involved in an accident that leaves her looking forever 29. She is forced to disguise herself with different aliases every decade or so in order to avoid suspicion, and is unable to see her a lot of daughter, Flemming (Ellen Burstyn) grow up. After going solo for almost a century, she meets Ellis (Michiel Huisman) at a New Year’s Eve party and there is instant chemistry. Directed by Lee Toland Krieger.

I had so much hope for this film and was really anticipating great things from it. The trailer is well done, but I am really quite disappointed at how it turned out overall. Just to emphasize how much I wanted to watch this film- I went to watch this alone…
