About Time Film

Another time travel movie, but not all about science, black holes and quantum physics. Here I want to tell you about the About Time Film. A nice romantic comedy released in August 2013, it is a British production and the story of a young boy who could travel in time.

The film was directed and written by Richard Curtis and had mostly good reviews from the critics.

About Time

The movie About Time follows a young man named Tim Lake from Cornwall, who at the age of 21 discovers his ability to travel through time. He tries to fix some areas in his life (for example his relationship with Mary) and to make his life better. He thinks by having a girlfriend his life will be on the up. He can travel only to places he has already been in the past.

Trying to prevent some things happening, he stops some good things in his life and he finds himself in a never ending situation. Tim has some attempts to fix situations by travelling into the past, but they do not end well for him or his family. So, will he just accepted this in the end?

His father is very ill with cancer and he tells Tim a secret which is not to change his past, but simply to live the day twice, almost the same.To enjoy every day a full life.

I have always been interested in time travel. From a very young age I was forever watching movies that would take me back in time.

I would love to hear from all of you who are also interested in this subject. Movies? Science? Book? Literature?

Whatever your interest is, I would love to meet you.

    Very nice message from the film. We are often time either too caught up in the past, or worrying about our future.  We tend to forget that the past is over and the future is yet to come, what we really have is ‘now’.

    Let’s just cherish the people around us and take time to enjoy what we have. Cheers!

      Hello Grace,

      I think you are right , we have to learn to live the present..The most important moment. Now is what we have as you say and is good to cherish the day, the persons that we love. Tomorrow they may not be here. 

      Thanks for reading my article and hope to see you back soon on my site.

    Thank you so much for introducing me to this time travel movie – I’ve been addicted to good Sci-Fi movies since I was a kid, and I love the topic of time travel. 

    On that subject, have you had time to watch ‘Alistair1918’ yet? It’s an indie movie released in 2015 and it’s shot in the Found Footage format – excellent time travel story?

    1. Cristina Boros (Post author)

      Hello Chris, to be honest i haven’t watch this movie. i will try to find it .Thanks for your suggestion.

      Thanks for reading my article and i also have been a sci-fi fan all my life.

      Hope to have you back on this site for more time travel news:)

    Hi Cristina! Thank you for suggesting this film. The plot is interesting. I had never thought in that possibility: when the main character of the film “fixes” some things in the past, he may also “ruin” other things. Yeah, it could be a never ending situation.But I believe time travel films should make us think of not only enjoying each day (although it should be that way), but also induce us to be thoughtful with each important decision we take.

    1. Cristina Boros (Post author)

      Hello Henry,

      You are totally right, every small decision, not only the important once can change the course of our life and not only.

      As you say we have to enjoy every moment like the last one. 

      I am glad that you liked my review and if you are interested in Time travel films you have many more here:)

      Nice to meet you and hope to see you soon back here.

    I like to watch time travel, aliens from outer space movies :). Your site is full of interesting information which I will sure to come back for more.

    About time travel, sometimes things happened for a reason. If we try to travel to the past to fix them, it will create an unbalance situation.
