The Age of Adaline ★★★

After an auto accident and near-death experience, Adaline (Blake Lively, never more alluring) doesn't age. It's a ridiculous premise...but one that is explained away about as well as it probably can be. Since this is a romantic chick flick, there's Ellis, a rich and handsome gentleman (Michiel Huisman) who ought to be in Adaline's future (although since he's mortal, she is afraid to commit). And then there's Ellis' father (Harrison Ford, my god he's my age and he's still hot!) who knew Adaline back when; and Adaline's daughter (Ellen Burstyn playing Blake Lively's daughter...told you it's all rather ridiculous!) But I'm a sucker for this kind of film. And the gorgeous cinematography and San Francisco setting didn't hurt. For me, this is the epitome of the guilty pleasure.
