REVIEW: Time Traveler's Wife

Time Traveler's Wife
released August 14, 2009

Eric Bana (Nero in the new Star Trek film) plays Henry, the time traveler.  The concept is that he travels through time, although he has no control of when he leaves, or when he comes back.  Another interesting thing is that he cannot take anything with him, except his own body, so all the clothes and jewelry are left in a pile right where he's standing.  
Through out his time traveling he is always drawn to familiar places and people.  Yet he will always come back to his time in his life.  In the traveling he meets Clare, played by Rachel McAdams.  She meets him for the first time when she is six, but he meets her for the first time when he is in his late 20s. It's an interesting story, yet is filmed to help all understand what is happening---just keep an open mind.  It's a great film. Keep a box of tissues handy.  It will pull at your emotions.  Like any family, there is drama, but the bond of love is stronger than ever and it will tug on your heart strings and you will value your family more after watching this film.

Adapted from the best selling Novel The Time Traveler's Wife, by Audrey Niffenegger, published in 2003, this film is explosive in it's original depiction of the time space continuum. I love everything Sci-Fi, but this film has none of that feel.  It is unique in it's filming and the story feels real, like it has really happened.  I love that Audrey Niffenegger's vision has come off the page in a beautiful array of ingenuity.
