From writer/director Richard Curtis (Love Actually), About Time is charming, endearing, heart-warming and, at times, a real tear-jerker. The story follows Tim Lake (Domhnall Gleeson), whose father (Bill Nighy) tells him, at the age of 21, that the men in their family have always had the ability to travel through time. He can’t change history, but he can make his world, and the life that he shares with his beautiful girlfriend Mary (Rachel McAdams), a better place.
At the film’s press day, actress Rachel McAdams spoke during a roundtable about having done three time travel films now (the others being The Time Traveler’s Wife and Midnight in Paris), whether she has any time travel envy, which moments she’d like to relive in her own life, what a special experience it was to make this film, and what it was like to shoot a scene in the dark. She also talked about how she’s currently shooting with director Cameron Crowe, why she loves stories with love in them, how The Notebook will always hold a special place in her heart, and her favorite holiday movies. Check out what she had to say after the jump.
