Age of Adaline: Who wants to Live Forever when They can Grow Old with Michiel Huisman

If the idea of eternal youth has always seemed appealing to you, this film will sober you up quickly: Age of Adaline is a wonderful tale about the power of love – and a killer sense of fashion

What’s it about? A young woman (Blake Lively) is rendered ageless by a curious accident. Her eternal life is complicated when, after years of leading a solitary life, she meets a very special man (Michiel Huisman),

What’s it really about? There’s nothing more desirable than growing old with the person you love.

Pick if:

  • You’re looking for a beautiful romance to watch on your own, with your girlfriends or on a date
  • It even makes a good pick for family night because of the story with Adaline’s daughter
  • You love modern fairy tales such as Pushing Daisies or Penelope: Age of Adaline even has a narrator
  • You appreciate a nice and mellow soundtrack: Age of Adaline includes songs by contemporary artists (Start Again” by Elena Tonra) as well as classic songs such as “Simple Twist of Fate” by Bob Dylan, or “Since I don’t have you” by The Skyliners

Gorgeous is any decade: Blake Lively as Adaline Bowman
  • You’re a fan of Blake Lively: she is phenomenal in this film. She plays Adaline as a heartbreakingly vulnerable, yet incredibly strong woman that is very easy to relate to in spite of her unusual circumstances. And yes, she looks stunning in every scene and outfit
  • Speaking of outfits: the wardrobe in Age of Adaline is breathtaking. As we follow the character through the years, her look, curiously, is always timeless and elegant

Most memorable quote: “All these years you’ve lived, but never had a life” – William

Most memorable scene: Ellis comes to the library where Adaline works to bring her flowers…a very special kind of flowers.

Where can I watch? Age of Adaline is available for streaming on Netflix Mexico, Colombia and Brazil and available for rent on Maxdome, iTunes and Amazon.
