The Time Traveler's Wife

time Traveller's Wife

Headed out on Monday to watch The Time Traveller's Wife [starring Eric Bana & Rachel McAdams], courtesy of M1! Based on a bestselling novel, published in 2003, of the same title by Audrey Niffenegger, it is essentially a love story about a man with a genetic disorder that causes him to time travel unpredictably, and about his wife who has to cope with his frequent absences and dangerous experiences.

This debut novel was written as a metaphor for the author's failed relationships and is classified as both science fiction and romance while examining issues of love, loss, and free will. In particular, it uses time travel to explore miscommunication and distance in relationships. It also investigates deeper existential questions.

I'm not going to give away too much, but I absolutely loved and love the movie! It really made me reflect upon the things in my life and ask myself a question I should have done a long time ago. However, if you've read the novel, you'll notice some differences between the novel and the movie. But I definitely recommend this movie to those who enjoy a good love story and those who enjoy movies that sets you thinking.

It's out in the theatres, so do catch it over the weekend!

Would you wait for someone who's never there, where the only thing left was a thin thread of love?
