Time Traveller's Wife
Last night, some of us went to see this movie. The girls and I were thrilled as it was a book that we loved from our book club. Its screening was delayed a year. While it did omit certain aspects of the book, and changed the ending totally!! it was still a good movie.
It is told from the point of view from the "time traveler". At age 5 or 6, he discovers that he can travel through time. It is genetic and he cannot control when or where he will travel. It showed the passion and love of this couple, and the frustrations that Claire faced when he "disappeared". Such as he did on his wedding day, 5 minutes before walking down the aisle, again on his wedding night, and various other times.
There are some very funny moments as well as tears. Hubby said that while it didn't focus on the time travel too much (he likes Sci-fi), it was a good movie and he liked it. (Even if you might call it a chick flick!! hehe)
