About Time (2013) Dir. Richard Curtis
A superhero story with an awkward everyman Tim (Domhnall Gleeson), who possesses a super power of time travel. As in all superhero stories, he fights crime (he’s a lawyer), uses his powers to do good, and gets the most beautiful girl (always adorable Rachel McAdams). The only one who knows Tim’s secret is his father (Bill Nighy), who gives Tim the wisest piece of advice: “I’ve never bumped into a genuinely happy rich person.”
A tad boring at the beginning, it slowly but surely unveils a message to live your life well, no matter how many times you’re given the chance to go back and change something in the past. The movie tells us, change is good. Or, change is good? Or, change is good! You don’t have to have super powers to time travel to change something in you life to make it better. And for all of us who don’t have this opportunity, live every moment like it’s your last moment. A kind of feel-good story that happens only in movies.
Long days, pleasant nights,
