A lot of people,including myself missed or simply overlooked About Time and to be honest I don't know why my stupid brain allowed me to overlook this gem.
About Time, is probably the best film that came out in 2013 for me, alongside M0S of course. About Time is exactly what it says on the tin;
"A new funny film about love. With a bit of time travel"
Yes, I know, the "love" part put me off as well, but that "love" part within the film, amplifies exactly why this film is truly great (and I don't say that with any hesitation).
Let me give you a quick overview of what exactly this film is about. Domhnall Gleeson plays this guy who is down on his luck, especially with the females. One day his dad casually tells him that he has the power to travel back in time, if he goes into a dark space like a wardrobe. Strange? I know right, but the time travel aspect is great. The part I love the most about that is it explores the fact that you simply can not outrun time, even with a special power thingy, you just cant.
So as you can guess, the film shows us how he uses his "gift" to get the girl he likes, save his friends and also family from bad situations that occur and sometimes he actually can't change anything, even if he tries!
I know a lot of you guys are just seeing "rom com" but truly this film is far much deeper than that and a lot more interesting than the poster displays!
Your probably thinking "looks like a waste of my time" I say to you, go watch it.
Overall I would give this film a 4.5/5 & that not exaggeration
