“The AGE of ADALINE” (2015) Movie Review.

This romantic fantasy film is specially designed to set female hearts aflutter. Do bring along your hankie just in case, as the narrative rolls on, you will feel a tug at your heartstrings. You might cry.

It’s “all kinds of beautiful” in terms of lavish production values with an award winning performance from Blake Lively who brings applause to the lead character Adaline.

Adaline, through a supernatural consternation, has remained 29 for nearly a century. It’s great to be forever young. Right?

In order to protect her identity, she bolts and lives a solitary existence until unexpectedly, the love she hungers for comes knocking and things start to go awry.

The movie is about a woman who develops the uncanny ability to remain   forever young.

The film focuses on her, almost as a metaphorical character study, on how the major events and emotions of her life are affected by her condition.

Her daughter grows older than her. She avoids love for fear of death and loss. And, she’s always on the move.

There is a lingering fear in her that one day, the man in her dream shows up, and things will start to change.

 “The Age of Adaline” is fashionably directed by Lee Toland Krieger who has probably splurged a fortune to create the vintage fashionista look for the Adaline character. The end result is: she looks absolutely stunning.

The film stars Blake Lively, Michiel Huisman, Kathy Baker, Amanda Crew,Harrison Ford, and Ellen Burstyn.

Adaline Bowman (Blake Lively) is seen purchasing fake IDs at an apartment in San Francisco. She goes home to her apartment where her dog greets her. During her 107 years of being alive, she has raised the same kind of dog over and over again. She notes that she is late for work at the downtown library’s office of archives.

While working, she opens a film reel and her life is explained. She was born on New Year’s Day in 1908, got married, had a child, and became a widow. One night, an unexplainable snow began to fall as she was driving to her parents’ house. She suffers a car accident/lightning strike combination that causes her to remain 29 years old forever. As her daughter Flemming grows older, it becomes apparent that Adaline is not aging. One day she is pulled over by a cop, who takes away her ID as it says she is in her late 40s.

One night, she is walking home when two FBI agents put her in a car and try to take her on an airplane. She escapes and decides she will spend her life running. She explains this to Flemming, and they have a heartfelt goodbye. At present day, she adds a cosigner to her bank account and has a flashback to when she opened the account. She had invested in Xerox, and it has paid off well. She is planning to leave soon to live in Oregon.

On New Year’s Eve, she enters the hotel to a party where she meets Ellis Jones (Michiel Huisman). Sparks fly …..

You have to catch the movie for the nail-biting suspenseful finale.
