The Ti me Trav­eller’s Wife

Balonne Beacon - - LIFE -

Sun­day, eleven, 8.30pm, M (2009)

This adap­ta­tion of Au­drey Nif­f­eneg­ger’s pop­u­lar novel ex­plores the idea that two peo­ple destined to be to­gether will al­ways find each other, no mat­ter the ob­sta­cles. Chicago li­brar­ian Henry DeTam­ble (Eric Bana) has a ge­netic dis­or­der that causes him to in­vol­un­tar­ily travel through time. De­spite never know­ing when he will dis­ap­pear from the present and emerge, un­clothed, in another stage of his life, Henry man­ages to build a re­la­tion­ship with artist Clare Ab­shire (Rachel McAdams, left). Her fate is both lonely and won­drous – her lover can come to her and then be whisked away with­out no­tice. Al­though Bana never quite matches McAdams’ lu­mi­nous pres­ence, the leads have a pleas­ant chem­istry.
