Age of Adaline – loved the movie with beautiful flawed characters

Age of AdalineFilm and television reviews by our resident autistic film critic Maymay.

After miraculously remaining 29 years old for almost eight decades, Adaline Bowman (Blake Lively) has lived a solitary existence, never allowing herself to get close to anyone who might reveal her secret. But a chance encounter with charismatic philanthropist Ellis Jones (Michiel Huisman) reignites her passion for life and romance. When a weekend with his parents (Harrison Ford and Kathy Baker) threatens to uncover the truth, Adaline makes a decision that will change her life forever.

I loved this movie. It’s a love story with beautifully flawed characters. Ellis, Adaline, William and Flemming were my favorites. Everyone was incredible and the acting was amazing. I thought there were parts that didn’t make sense and wouldn’t happen in real life. Adaline has been running and lying to people she meets even though she doesn’t like to lie to good people. She has many unbelievable things happen to her, like I’m am pretty sure that if you drowned and get struck by lightening that you don’t come back to life. I am really positive that it’s not a thing that happens in real life. She seems to be a considerate and loving person who really wants to do the right thing, but still protect herself and her daughter. I was happy and sad for her most of the movie. She had to do so many things to keep her secret and it made her not have many close friends. I also loved the puppy in the movie. The puppy was adorable. I liked how it ran to her when she got home. Flemming was my favorite because I liked how even though she was old enough to be Adaline’s grandmother she was always there to take care of her mom. They were like best friends. Harrison Ford was really good in this movie. He is a fantastic actor and this was a good role for him. It’s a long movie but I didn’t mind at all. It was good and I’m glad I saw it.
