The Age of Adaline has a wonderful story, memorable background score, great camera work, and intense acting. From the start to the last scene of the movie, you feel engrossed in it. I will not talk about the scientific reason or explanation of what happened to Adaline Bowman (Blake Lively) as it is futile here. All I can say and write about The Age of Adaline is that it is an extremely well-directed film and all the actors have given their best. You won’t find anyone without a purpose in the movie. Something that is very rare nowadays. Hats off to Lee Toland Krieger for directing such a pleasing piece of Hollywood cinema.
The story mainly revolves around Adaline Bowman, and she is well-supported by all the characters in the movie. Full credit must be given to the casting director for choosing Blake Lively and Michiel Huisman as the lead characters of The Age of Adaline. Veteran superstar Harrison Ford has been at his best as he normally is with a purposeful cameo in this movie.
Before writing anything about the movie, I would love to emphasize the fact that it is a "Political Satire". However, it may not be the best of "Political Satires" that we have seen till now. But, keeping in mind the movies that have hit the screens this year, it is definitely one of the best till date......
I give 9 out of 10 to this film as it is very refreshing and makes you happy. Overall, it is a good to watch movie with its 1960s Cold War era theme and some awesome acting by the actors. On the top of everything, the “Music/Background Score” of the film is very pleasing to ears and takes you to the late 1960s. If you are looking to see some spy theme-based comic movie then go for The Man from UNCLE. It is a very well-balanced package with occasional pieces of laughter and some thrilling action. Above all, whosoever loves the US-Russian rivalry of the Cold War Era, will surely love this movie.
