Movie: About Time - Domhnall Gleeson and Rachel McAdams and Bill Nighy

for my birthday we saw About Time (2013) - IMDb

It is really good. I like the first review by a Roger About Time Reviews & Ratings - IMDb
I am always interested in the Time Travel theme - however this is not really a scifi film. It is more a romance by the Notting Hill (1999) team. Domhnall really has a Hugh Grant voice style. Rachel is so Julia Roberts in eye flashes etc. BUT they both very good - indeed all the actors are. Bill played a very loving father. Tremendous movie. Its very funny and you will be looking for time travel solutions to the hero's problems. Note the Sun screen scene with the Aussie actress Maggie Robbie. And yet the film does get profound about the human condition which I would sum it up as Carpe diem

Many thanks to Event Cinemas - I'd lost my cinema senior membership cards and Event cinema were so quick giving me new ones on the spot....

Trailers we saw of coming soon that looked were
Captain Phillips (2013) - IMDb Somali pirates with Tom Hanks
The Book Thief (2013) - IMDb Jewish suffering in WW2

and some top actors in what looks to be rubbish - Last Vegas (2013) - IMDb
