This week’s Netflix and Chill post isn’t a new film but it is one of my favourites, and after recently watching ‘A Simple Favour’ not long ago, I was reminded of ‘Age of Adaline’ and we decided to share it with you.
A terrible car accident with a powerful bolt of lightening equals to an unexplainable scientific happening, which is the immortal life Adaline Bowman. After coming to terms that she no longer ages, Adaline creates a whole new life for herself every 10 years in order to keep her secret safe. Until one day she crosses paths with Michiel Huisman who plays Ellis, and after keeping him at arms length for long enough, she decides to risk it all in the name of love.
I really thoroughly enjoyed this film, however I do feel like Blake Lively really does carry the story, and perhaps with another cast this wouldn’t have been as successful. The more I watch Blake Lively I am not only in awe of her beauty, but her ability as an actress to bring her character to life so well. I think she has really grown and has built on her talent strength to strength. However Lively is still massively underrated, despite her incredible leading roles in ‘The Shallows’ and ‘A Simple Favour’, hopefully she will start to be recognised as more than just her character on ‘Gossip Girl’.
We rate this a 7 out of 10.
Luckily for you guys this one is on Netflix, so you don’t have to go searching online to watch it. Leave a comment below to let me know what you guys thought of the film.
