5 Facts To Prove Richard Curtis’ About Time Is A Must-Watch For Romance Fans

2013’s ‘About Time’ transcends the typical romance narrative by exploring various other concepts. It might be Richard Curtis’ directorial swan song, but it sure is worth your time to watch. Here is why.

As the leaves turn golden and the weather gets colder, it’s time for romance fans to curl up with a film that warms the heart. Released a decade ago, Richard Curtis’ ‘About Time’ still holds its charm, bringing an unexpected twist to the genre. Here are five reasons why this film deserves a spot on your must-watch list.

5. The Movie Redefines The Father And Son Relationship

At its core, ‘About Time’ is more than just a romance; it’s a narrative that explores the father-son dynamic between Tim Lake (Domhnall Gleeson) and his father (Bill Nighy). Both characters share the ability to traverse through time, and this shared secret weaves a stronger bond between them. It also forms an emotional backbone to the story and reminds us of the value of family ties.

4. It Has Important Quotes That Will Resonate With Audiences

Curtis’ screenplay is laced with quotes that linger with audiences, prompting introspection long after the credits roll. Lines like ‘We’re all traveling through time together, every day of our lives’ urge viewers to cherish the beauty of everyday moments and to live each day to its fullest.

3. The Movie Uses Time Travel Perfectly Within A Love Story

‘About Time’ takes the time-travel element and integrates it into a love story. Time travel serves as a narrative device that allows the characters to revisit and reshape moments within their own life, which is an innovative take.

2. It Has An All-Star Cast Including Margot Robbie And Rachel McAdams

The film features performances from Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams, and Bill Nighy. The cast also includes the talents of Margot Robbie, among others. Supporting cast members, including Tom Hollander, Lindsay Duncan, and Lydia Wilson, also enrich the story.

1. ‘About Time’ Is The Last Movie Richard Curtis Has Made

‘About Time’ holds an important place in Curtis’ filmography as it may be the last movie he directed. Curtis approached the film with the perspective that this could be his final directorial project. So, he infused it with a sense of philosophical depth. Still, he continues to write and involve himself in other cinematic projects.
