Movie Review: The Time Traveler's Wife - PG13

cross-posted from A Catholic View

Warning: Potential spoilers

In a way, Clare has known, and loved, Henry her whole life. The main theme, of course, is their love story. The other prevalent themes are acceptance (she accepts the fact that he disappears at any time, without warning, and he accepts his condition as well) and trust; there is definitely trust between them, and they later have to cope with 2 miscarriages. I was disappointed that he got a vasectomy when he thought his genetics might have caused them, but hint: it IS a movie about time travel :) The story is very well-done, told in an entertaining and plausible fashion.

Content warning: Every time Henry time travels, he does so without clothes; he leaves without them, and shows up wherever he is going naked. However, there is no nudity shown.

A very good movie. See it. You'll be glad you did!

"Time Travel" movies should be back from the start of the 90's to the main stages of Hollywood movies. even if it costs a little "drama" in the side :)
