First time I saw you, I knew I had to meet you. I didn’t know when or how but I knew I wanted to. – Ellis Jones
This movie centers around the life of Adaline Bowman. She was born at the turn of the 20th century, but after an accident that should have ended her life, she never ages. While the world changes around her, Adaline’s outward appearance remains the same. She lives a solitary existence, and watches her daughter age in a way that she never will.
Love is something she steers away from until she meets Ellis Jones, who fall for her from the moment he first sees her at a New Years Gala. She decides to give love a chance, but when she goes to meet Ellis’ parents, her past comes back to haunt her in unexpected ways.
It’s very different from the roles Blake Lively has played in the past (Gossip Girl, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) but I thinks she plays it well.
