THE AGE OF ADALINE (2015)

A young woman, born at the turn of 20th century, is rendered ageless after an accident. After years of a solitary life, she meets a man who might be worth losing her immortality for. -- IMDB

I really enjoyed this drama romance with a bit of sci-fi thrown in. The beginning and end present the sci-fi premise for what occurs, but in between those two points there is an intriguing story exploring the effects of not being able to grow old while the world and the people you love do. The cinematography and costuming are beautiful. Blake Lively, who plays Adeline, does a great job of traveling through history and trying to hide her identity. Harrison Ford puts in an appearance and Anthony Ingruber, who plays a young Harrison Ford, is uncanny. The direction is subtle and an easy pleasure to stay engaged. A clever and thought-provoking story.
