The Time Traveler's Wife is a wonderful film that goes through the life of a man named Henry who has a disorder which forces him to time travel randomly at any moment while still trying to maintain a loving relationship with his girlfriend Clare. The movie is actually based on the novel by the same name with several different changes made in certain scenes to showcase a better story. The movie is very well respected but did not receive a good amount of reviews from Rotten Tomatoes after receiving 38% from the critics. The movie was not really considered as good as the original novel, but the movie was still received well by movie goers.
The Time Traveler's Wife begins with Henry meeting Clare and never really noticing her at all, but she personally knows him and understands that he has a gene which forces him to actually time travel throughout the day. The movie is quite interesting because he gets married to Clare and has a beautiful marriage at first, but they struggle because Henry has a very annoying genetic disorder which forces him to time travel. He usually time travels to a wide range of times and days, but he actually never ends up seeing the says he first met Clare. The movie showcases tremendously how well he is able to live his life while Clare deeply struggles with the way he time travels and how often he actually does it.
Time traveling is a part of his genetic disorder which he has had for a very long time since he was born. He deals with it on a daily basis, and his wife, Clare, has nothing else to do but to let him go about his daily traveling into different times and days in his life. Clare is oftentimes bothersome based on the fact that she is dealing with other things in life and going about it alone while her husband travels to different eras and times in his life isn't easy for her.
The Time Traveler's Wife is a film that has explicit nude scenes where the two main characters make love, so the movie is not for children. However, the book and this movie is wonderfully crafted and definitely teaches a whole lot about different aspects on what we all experience in life. Not everybody who watches this movie is going to enjoy the fun story behind it. If you want to enjoy a good film with love and fun supernatural things take place, this movie is worth watching.
