Review: A Delightful mythical tale with time travel twist appealing young genre (who are romantic at heart) with powerful performances and wonderful story.

Overall: A Beautifully crafted film that talks about a woman who gets strucked by lightning and consequently remains forever twenty-nine years old. Movie has its memorable and cute moments, emphasizing creativity and thoughtfulness in dating, with a little historical twist in it. Acting is the key component that this movie relies on the most.

Performances: Blake Lively is excellent as the lead. She plays the role of a woman who lives with the mind of an elderly woman trapped in a perpetually young body. Movie also features nice performances from Michael Huisman, who plays Ellis and Harrison Ford as William (Ellis’s Father). The dynamic between the characters works
extremely well in this fantasy tale.

Technical Review: David Lanzenberg has done brilliant job as movie is visually appealing. It’s all shot in a sort of bold, vibrant & deep color palate giving a feel of 1950; Golden Age Era. The films deserves a laud in technical departments like: Costumes, Make-up, Hair styles and Cinematography.

PDF Verdict: Enjoyable well acted simple story of love that will appeal young genre who are romantic at heart.
