The Age of Adaline, 2015

Eternal youth is one of the greatest human fantasies. It raises questions differently about the meaning of life.

Adaline Bowman (Blake Lively) is beautiful, young , and a whole life ahead of her. Born in 1908, this American lives a quiet and happy life. She meets a man , marries him and gives birth to a baby girl : Flemming . But in the early 30s, as she raises her child alone after the death of her husband, Adaline is the victim of a car accident . Since she no longer ages . This can be a tempting escape from our human condition , but here it forces the heroine to flee. The FBI wants her to take tests . She’s no longer safe .

The eternal young woman is forced to move every ten years to not make public her particularity. Flemming become older than her mother, who face the years without a wrinkle. Adaline is locked up in a solitary lifestyle. But her routine is disrupted when she meets Ellis Jones, a wealthy philanthropist who gives her a new taste for life. Only problem : the father of the young man , William Jones (Harrison Ford) , had an affair with her in the 60’s .

This interesting theme is added to a nice story . This is not the first time that the concept of immortality is addressed in a production. This is a subject that fascinates the human being who’s desperate to not being able to escape the aging and death .

It’s definitely not my favorite movie , but it deserves to be seen and appreciated. Designed more like a romantic comedy than a reflection film ,  » Adaline  » is nonetheless a beautiful film . The film is full of visual effects , beautiful aerial shots and thoughtful flashbacks .

The mother / daughter relationship and the reversal of position that causes the immortality of the heroine, who sees his own child become octogenarian , are very well staged. Overall, this film offers us a good time.
