Imagine waking up to the person you love, gazing into his eyes, and then two seconds later he disappears, and nothing is left but his clothes. This may sound crazy, but it's only a brief description of the movie The Time Traveler's Wife, directed by Robert Schwentke.
Rachel McAdams, who plays Eric Bana's wife, did an amazing job portraying how difficult it would be to be devoted to someone who is constantly time traveling. She is one of the most versatile actresses I have ever seen in film. McAdams and Bana had amazing on screen chemistry. They must have kissed 50 times for this movie to be made.
Beware though, this movie is a bit hard to follow. After reading the book, a lot of close detail was left out of the film. It is hard to cram a lot of information into two hours of film.
Eric Bana, who plays Henry, has a genetic mutation that causes him to spontaneously travel through time - any and every time. He falls in love with McAdams' character Clare. Together the two fight for love between the decades.
Overall this movie was great, and one of the most romantic I have seen all year. I recommend seeing The Time Traveler's Wife, and then reading the book if you like the movie.
I give this movie 4 stars (of a possible 5 stars).
