"About Time" by Richard Curtis


    "About Time" is a British romantic comedy film, brought to us by Richard Curtis, a well known name in the film industry.
     The movie tell us a story about a man who can travel through time (apparently all of the male members of his family can too). After some adventures and conflicted feelings, the protagonist finds his true love and then (after 3 kids) stops time travelling.
     Now, I think that Richard Curtis brought us another of his usual pieces, which although the main theme is love, there is also a subliminal lesson in it.
      In this one, I believe that he wanted to transmit how the choices we made on a daily basis can change our life completely and that happiness always finds its way to our lives in one way or another. No matter what, our fate will always be the same.
       Although I'm not a big fan of romantic comedies, this one brings a different concept to the genre and so, this one is worth 3 stars. (Sorry, this is as much I'll give for any romantic comedy.)
