[Movie Review] About Time

Got a pair of preview tickets to watch About Time at Shaw Lido! A big thumbs-up to the show, really love it a lot! =)

Welcome tokens received, HerWorld Magazine and a couple of advertising booklets arranged by United International Pictures. Feeling lucky because HerWorld is one of my favourite fashion & beauty magazine!

in the queue.. it was a free seating..

The huge theatre housing 780 new cushioned seats, we sat in the middle. Nearing to 9pm
where the show starts.. the area was surprisingly full!

About Time, a romantic comedy, begins with the introduction of Tim Lake (Domhnall Gleeson) and his family in a seaside mansion in Cornwall, far away from the city. As Tim reaches his 21st years of life, he learns a secret from his adorable dad (Bill Nighy), that the men in their family can travel through time, where they can revisit any moment of their own life. So the question came in mind, what would you do if you're given a second chance in life?

For Tim, Love is always the thing his seeking for. After several attempts of courting girls (even with his newfound special skill), some things are just not meant to be. Soon after, he met Mary (Rachel McAdams), a pretty sweet girl, at a restaurant.. but an unfortunate time-travel incident resulted in him never having met her at all. So they meet for the first time again and again and finally, after a lot of trying, he wins her heart.

Tim then uses his power to create the perfect romantic proposal, to save his wedding from the worst best-man speeches, to save his best friend from professional disaster, to save his sister's love life... but as life progresses, he realises this gift can't save him from the pain that affect all families, everywhere.

Soon after his dad passed on, he choose to put his gift aside and lead a life like how a normal person would, and on top of that, knowing to make the most out of each and every moment with his loved ones.

This movie really can make you go "Awww...~", and really touching towards the end of the show.. =')

Much in love with this song, their song track, 'How Will I Love You by Ellie Goulding'.. 
from watching the movie About Time, yet another romantic comedy movie by Richard Curtis. =)
