Story: A road accident one fateful night changes Adaline Bowman's (Lively) life. After her car crashes, a bolt of lightning strikes her and due to a number of other weather factors being in alignment, her cellular makeup is altered as a result. And so, the ageing process is halted at a genetic level. Adaline reconciles herself with the fact that she will outlive everyone she knows and so, shuns love. Until one day, when Adaline meets the true love of her life.

Review: The whole idea of not ageing a single bit beyond the age of 29 would be enviable to many and the bane of the beauty industry. Adaline's contemporaries are eternally curious about the secret of her everlasting youthfulness. "French face cream", she hurriedly tells one, before rushing off. Adaline met with her accident in 1937 and - as a faux professor-like voiceover diligently informs us in the film- a moon phase had a combined effect on the tides of the ocean as well as an ionizing effect on the Earth's atmosphere. To Adaline, being genetically frozen in time is a millstone rather than a miracle. An aberration that prevents her from having any kind of meaningful relationships because she knows she will outlive absolutely all of them.

But the dashing and bordering-on-brash Ellis (Huisman) comes along during a New Year's Eve party and as far as Adaline is concerned, he is in it to win it. Although Ellis thinks Adaline is icy, she is actually bowled over. She gets a taste of lasting happiness as she gradually lets Ellis into her world, much to his delight. But even as she realizes that he is the one for her, she must also one day, tell him about the accident.

Apart from these two strong characters, it is Harrison Ford (playing Ellis' dad William) who proves his vintage with a performance that is both sensitively executed and thoroughly convincing. Apart from an ending that seemed a tad stretched and the voiceovers that were unnecessary, this is an unusual and engaging saga of everlasting love.
