The Age of Adaline

Lee Toland Krieger (2015)

12A Certificate


Our Score
Hit by lightning during a car accident in the 1930s, beautiful widow and mother Adaline Bowman (Blake Lively) stops ageing. To avoid suspicion, she changes name, job and location every ten years, while her daughter (Ellen Burstyn) continues to age normally, and eventually masquerades as her mother. Avoiding the complications of romance for decades, the wrinkle-free beauty finally falls for a wealthy tech entrepreneur (Michiel Huisman) but her past catches up with her, with unexpected results. Although photogenic, Lively doesn't have the star power to keep us riveted, especially as the script makes so little of over a century of living. Free of violence, death or graphic sex, this romantic fantasy is an easy-going throwback to women's films of yore, complete with a smooth narration filling in the gaps. At least, Harrison Ford and Kathy Baker shine in supporting roles.


A woman survives a strange accident that means she never ages. She lives to be over 100, but resists getting close to people for fear of her secret being discovered. She finally falls in love with a man and considers trying to have a relationship with him, only to realise she has a shared history with his father. Romantic fantasy, starring Blake Lively, Michiel Huisman and Harrison Ford.
