Verdict: Very Good
Director Lee Toland Hrieger, after having several award winning movie outings like December Ends, The Vicious kind, Celeste, Jesse Forever etc, has now come up with an interestingly beautiful yet an unbelievable fare named The Age Of Adaline.
Plot: After miraculously remaining 29 years old for almost 8 decades, Adaline Bowman (Blake Lively) has lived a solitary existence, never allowing herself to get close to anyone who might reveal her secret. But a chance encounter with a charismatic philanthropist Ellis Jones (Michiel Huisman) reignites her passion for life and romance. When a weekend with his parents (Harrison Ford and Kathy Baker) threatens to uncover the truth, Adaline makes a decision that will change her life forever.
Aces: The brilliant & sensitive directorial treatment of Lee Toland Krieger and of course the par excellence performance of its principal actors like Blake Lively as Adaline, Michiel Huisman as Ellis, Harrison Ford as William and above all Anthony Ingruber as young William.
Minuses: it defies all logic of the ageing process
Last Word: A must watch movie.
