Richard Curtis 2013
UK | 123 minutes
Director Richard Curtis and stars Bill Nighy and Domhnall Gleeson in person for Q&A on October 1!
The incomparably droll Bill Nighy plays a Dad with a secret power that has been passed from the fathers to the sons of his family for generations. They can time travel, albeit within reason. Whether you take this premise literally or metaphorically, it is a profoundly funny hook for a romantic comedy by a master of the genre, Richard Curtis. Fans of Curtis’s Love, Actually will be over the moon at his success in merging his idiosyncratic perspective with the comedic writing skill that made Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill such humongous hits. Lindsay Duncan is the flighty Nighy’s grounded wife, but the spotlight is on the younger generation: Domhnall Gleeson (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) as the son and Rachel McAdams, giving one of her very best performances, as the love of his life. A Universal Pictures release.
