The Age of Adaline Movie Review
Lionsgate Entertainment production The Age of Adaline movie hits select theaters on April 24th.
The Age of Adaline tells the story of a young woman by the name of Adaline Bowman (Blake Lively) who miraculously remained 29 years old for almost eight decades. Until a chance encounter with her past threatens to uncover her secret. She falls for philanthropist Ellis Jones (Michiel Huisman). When visiting his parents (Harrison Ford and Kathy Baker) one weekend her secret is almost exposed. This leaves Adaline to make a decision that will change her life forever.
Many women joke around about being 29 again when their birthday rolls around year after year. Adaline however experiences it over and over again as she stays 29 for several decades. The movie, albeit a little far-fetched in concept remained entertaining if for nothing else but Blake Lively’s performance. There were a couple of scenes that tugged at your emotions (no spoiler alerts here sorry). It does have a PG-13 rating for a couple of suggestive comments and a violent car crash.
The movie starts with Adaline Marie Bowman being ‘born at 12:01 a.m. on January 1st, 1908. She led a normal life until the age of twenty-nine, when something highly unusual occurred… Something almost magical.‘ Through a chain of events she at the age of 29, remains that age for years to come. The viewer is then taken on a historical journey through the decades as Adaline. In order to keep her secret she changes her look, identity and location every decade to remain safe.
