The unhurried storytelling matches Adaline's endless life, making this a respectable date movie.

The audience is certainly offered plenty of beautiful bone structure featured in languid close-ups of the two leads, along with jewel-like, memorable moments of acting prowess from the older actors.

Takes its premise and squanders it on a run-of-the-mill romance that doesn't have the courage to tackle its themes head on.

The plot is both ridiculous and overly convenient, stealing screentime from the deserving thorough period production design.

The film's greatest gift might be that it harbors one of Ford's best performances in years. You can never tell these days how invested he'll be in any given project, but Krieger must have the magic touch.

I thought Lively was strong enough in the role and the chemistry between all was so good I enjoyed it.

If you are looking for a romance film with hints of science fiction, this is it. [Full Review in Spanish]

It's a lovely idea, but the film misses the mark.

The Age of Adaline is a plushly packaged and has its fantasy charms, but it could have been infinitely more impactful.

It's a film that takes itself way too seriously, even when there are campy elements that keep creeping into the material. It kept me interested to a point, before ultimately collapsing under the weight of its own silliness.

For a movie about a woman who has lived for more than a hundred years, it's disappointing - and more than a little bit baffling - that Adaline is so lacking in dimension.

It has the powerful tang of nostalgia, memory for things we knew or didn't know. It reminds us that time is precious and it's never too late to make a good life.

Director Lee Toland Krieger has achieved a rich and warm palette, with fascinating inside looks at rarely seen historic San Francisco sites. Really, there is so much to love about this film.
August 21, 2018
There's really very little passion conveyed which makes the story lackluster. It's just completely flat.
February 1, 2018
It's a frustrating movie because it never really takes full advantage of its potential. [Full review in Spanish]

Functioning as a sly meta-comment on this town's love for preserving things, the smart romantic drama will make you think twice about ever again wishing for eternal youth.

... The Age of Adaline is incredibly boring.
August 22, 2017
It's a clunky, luminous mess that ultimately suggests that a person who has lived to be more than 100, raised a daughter, traveled the world, learned a ridiculous number of languages, and had a lot of adorable pets hasn't lived until she finds a man.
August 12, 2017
...a better-than-average contemporary romantic drama.
April 26, 2017
The Age of Adaline, a sentimental romance that's more watchable and touching than it may sound when you hear the premise.
