Movie 11: The Time Traveller's Wife (2009)
February 27, 2011

Robert Schwentke
Bruce Joel Rubin (screenplay), Audrey Niffenegger (novel)
Starring Eric Bana, Rachel McAdams

When Henry DeTamble meets Clare Abshire in a Chicago library they both understand that he is a time traveller, but she  knows much more than this about him as he has not yet been to the times and places where they have met before. He falls in love with her, as she has already with him, but his continuing unavoidable absences time travelling - and then returning with increasing knowledge of their future - makes things ever more difficult for Clare. Written by Jeremy Perkin

I haven't read the book but watching the movie, i thought to myself "is this another nicholas sparks movie?" hehe
it has themes of love, life and loss..

The chemistry of the two characters was really good.. eric bana was really good, better than his Lucky You performance..
Rachel McAdams does another great job.. she really expresses more than what the screenplay offers..
the secondary characters did their job well but could offer more..

I haven't read the book but there's a feeling that lots has been cut to fit it into the movie.. Timetravel is always a hard thing to write and of course there are many holes in the story.. I have so many questions and always want to know more about each time frame.. what lacked in the screenplay translation was made up in the beautiful cinematography..
what great use of the lens and special effects to make this movie with scifi elements an immersive experience..

It's a solid movie!

So this is why you were asking about the book earlier today. Haven't watched the movie but I read the book and didn't fall in love with it. LOL at the Nicholas Sparks comparison!
