About TimeAbout the Film
At age 21, Tim Lake (Domhnall Gleeson) learns a strange family secret passed down from his father (Bill Nighy): he can travel back in time. From this premise springs another winning romantic comedy from one of the genre’s most beloved filmmakers, Richard Curtis (NOTTING HILL, LOVE ACTUALLY). As a young man, Tim’s immediate anxiety and excitement over his special abilities centers on falling in love with a pretty girl. When he meets Mary, played by the incandescent Rachel McAdams, he must master his time-tripping powers to woo the woman of his dreams.
