Storyline Heading
At the age of 21, Tim Lake discovers he can travel in time. The night after another unsatisfactory New Year party, Tim's father tells his son that the men in his family have always had the ability to travel through time. Tim can't change history, but he can change what happens and has happened in his own life -- so he decides to make his world a better place... by getting a girlfriend. Sadly, that turns out not to be as easy as you might think. Moving from the Cornwall coast to London to train as a lawyer, Tim finally meets the beautiful but insecure Mary. They fall in love, then an unfortunate time-travel incident means he's never met her at all. So they meet for the first time again -- and again -- but finally, after a lot of cunning time-traveling, he wins her heart. Tim then uses his power to create the perfect romantic proposal, to save his wedding from the worst best-man speeches, to save his best friend from professional disaster and to get his pregnant wife to the hospital in time for the birth of their daughter, despite a nasty traffic jam outside Abbey Road. But as his unusual life progresses, Tim finds out that his unique gift can't save him from the sorrows and ups and downs that affect all families, everywhere.
DETAILED STORYLINE

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Romantic Sci-Fi - Although there is a time travel element, this film is first and foremost a romantic comedy. Fans of Rachel McAdams may be a bit disappointed that while she is the female lead, she is distinctly secondary to the lesser known male lead, Domhnall Gleeson. The R-rating is a result of some very moderate language and suggestive humor, so while the film may not be appropriate for young children, most parents would find it OK for younger teens--who likely would not be interested anyhow.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average To experience it, you just have to allow the analytical parts of your mind to unclench during the dodgier bits of business—all these pasty well-off people and their problems, oh woe is them!—and go with the feel-good flow.

USA Today Full Review
Good What results is amusing, gently entertaining and might induce a tear or two.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Very Good 'About Time' may not be a masterpiece, but it's a superb achievement nonetheless.

NY Post Full Review
Good After a midsection that's frustratingly banal — Curtis depends heavily on thin gags like a doddering relative who keeps saying the wrong thing — the movie turns emotionally engaging.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
At the age of 21, Tim Lake (DOMHNALL GLEESON of Anna Karenina, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2) discovers he can travel in time...

The night after another unsatisfactory New Year party, Tim's father (BILL NIGHY of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Love Actually) tells his son that the men in his family have always had the ability to travel through time. Tim can't change history, but he can change what happens and has happened in his own life -- so he decides to make his world a better place... by getting a girlfriend. Sadly, that turns out not to be as easy as you might think.

Moving from the Cornwall coast to London to train as a lawyer, Tim finally meets the beautiful but insecure Mary (RACHEL McADAMS of Mean Girls, The Notebook, The Vow). They fall in love, then an unfortunate time-travel incident means he's never met her at all. So they meet for the first time again -- and again -- but finally, after a lot of cunning time traveling, he wins her heart.

Tim then uses his power to create the perfect romantic proposal, to save his wedding from the worst best-man speeches and to save his best friend from professional disaster. But as his unusual life progresses, Tim finds out that his unique gift can't save him from the sorrows and ups and downs that affect all families, everywhere. There are great limits to what time travel can achieve, and it can be dangerous, too.

About Time is a comedy about love and time travel, which discovers that, in the end, making the most of life may not need time travel at all.
