Young love provides the framework for About Time, the latest movie from writer-director Richard Curtis. But the heart of the film is a story about a boy, his father and the greatest gift they can give each other: their time.
If it feels like the mangled adaptation of a much richer and more rewarding novel, almost everything that is frustrating about the film is also counterbalanced by moments of thoughtfulness and insightfulness.
There are those who, upon finding a plot hole in a film, allow it to ruin the movie. I'm not among them.'About Time' is flawed, with numerous plot holes. But it's beautifully told, wonderfully acted and touching enough to bring viewers to tears.
