The Age of Adaline: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

The premise of the film is really interesting and with the very gorgeous Blake Lively as the lead star, The Age of Adaline didn't disappoint us last night. We are quite amused afterwards even we heard a couple of ladies murmuring that the film is dull and boring. There are also some excited teens who rushed to the nearest poster outside the cinema to take some pictures along with their dates.

Just like the critics abroad, it seems that the movie isn't made to please everyone, but the charm is there and its up to the viewers' perspective, whether they would love the film or not.  If you're going to ask me well, the answer is a big YES!

After a near-death accident, she experienced when she was 29 years old, Adaline Bowman (Blake Lively), remains in that age for almost eight decades. She never allows anyone to now her secret except for her daughter. However, after he met a young philanthropist Ellis (Michiel Huisman) on New Years Eve, she starts to feel something for him but hesitant to fall in love because of her condition. But with Ellis persuasive effort she ended up meeting his parents (Harrison Ford and Kathy Baker) and a part of his past.

The storytelling is efficient and easy to follow where it tends to explain everything without being boring. It like a fairytale adaptation you've read before, but you're still excited on what will happen next. Blake Lively is just simply stunning and marvelous as Adaline. She is on cue keeping the audience mesmerized with the beauty of Adaline Bowman. We last saw Harrison Ford flying a helicopter in Expendables 3 manages to give a heartwarming presence even in a short amount of time. 

Overall, Age of Adaline isn't gonna win some awards but can easily attract some attention thanks to the strong performances of its casts. Plus a smooth sailing narration to break some ice Age of Adaline is quite charming and compelling all at the same time. 

Lakwatsera Lovers rates it 9 out of 10 stars

The plot bears so close a family resemblance to cerebral heavy weights like Benjamin Button and A.I.
