“Age of Adaline”

If you are looking for a movie that combines romance and a bit of scientific hocus pocus then “Age of Adaline” is my suggestion for some mindless fun.

The basic plot deals with what happened to Adaline at the age of 29.  She survives a near-death experience, with the result that she never ages.  In order to create a life for herself, she is constantly on the move trying never to connect with anyone.

Even though she tries not to fall in love, of course, she does.  The consequences will be life altering.0031398228080_p0_v2_s118x184.jpg

The film stars  Blake Lively as Adaline, Ellen Burstyn, as her daughter, and Harrison Ford as a former love.  Both Burstyn and Ford rise above the trite plot.

As the winter starts to get cold, “The Age of Adaline” might be a good escapist romantic film.
