Goofs

Adeline's 1940s-era California driver's permit states that it was issued by the "Motor Vehicle Commission" as authorized by the "Revised Statutes." In the 1940s, a California driver would have been carrying a driver license issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles (established in 1915) as authorized by the Vehicle Code (enacted in 1935 to consolidate older laws enacted in 1913, 1915, and 1923).

User Reviews

 
Different from the usual romance film...
26 May 2015 | by troyputlandSee all my reviews

Lee Toland Kriger's The Age of Adaline is a superb romantic thanks to its lead duo. Blake Lively is Adaline, the fair immortal who hasn't aged for several decades due to a severe car crash. She goes from relationship to relationship, from town to town, never settling down. A risky chance comes in the form of Ellis (Huisman), a stylish man whose intellect almost matches Adaline's own. Their encounters are warm, humorous and touching. Great support comes from Harrison Ford and Kathy Baker as Ellis' parents. Nudges of surrealism make TAoA vary from the usual romantic stories. Its voice-over, telling Adaline's 'miraculous' tale, is its only downfall. The unknown storyteller attempts to justify Adaline's conditions, but it comes across as a magnificent coincidence instead.
