Reason for Chosing
Even though the movie ‘About Time’ is not closely related to my passions which are animals and cosmetics, I chose this movie because this is my favorite movie I love so much.(Complex Sentence) Of course there are movies that I like related to animals; however, at this time I wanted to introduce ‘About Time’.(Compound Sentence)
Tim Lake is 21 years old and a lonely man. In a depressing New Year’s Eve party, however, he finds out a family secret that will change his life forever. After Tim’s father Bill tells him that the men in their family can time travel, Tim relocates to London to study law, and to find a girlfriend.
At a restaurant where is so dark that people cannot see each other, he meets gorgeous Mary and suddenly get to know that he has found the woman of his dreams. But as soon as they have fallen in love, an unexpected glitch in the time travel makes them complete strangers again. Now, in order to make Mary to fall in love with him again, Tim will have to time travel into the past time again.
Eventually, he seems to master the process, using his unique gift to create an unforgettable marriage proposal, ensuring his wedding to Mary. However, a massive traffic jam blocked their route to the hospital when his wife goes into labor, but in time Tim discovers that the true key to happiness lies not in his ability to fix the problems of the past, but instead in making the absolute most of his life in the present. After realizing the lesson, Tim seems to truly know how to live his every day so happy with his family members.
This movie really made me to think about many things, because I watched the movie several times due to my assignment in a major class.(Complex Sentence) The class was about family’s love and values and the assignment was to pick a movie that could make me to contemplate my family’s preciousness. At first, I didn’t really feel much about doing the assignment; however, after watching this movie to end it made me to feel so precious about my family.(Compound Sentence)
When Bill, Tim’s father dies, Tim uses his time ability to go back to time when Tim is so young and Bill is healthy enough to run with this little boy along a beach side. That moment really made me to cry and think about my parents’ love toward me. If you haven’t watched the movie yet, I truly recommend you to watch. If it’s with your family member, it would be much happier and valuable time.
Tim is also a very lovely character as one of main characters, but Mary was the one whom I thought as the most lovely heroine in movies. Also, what was impressive about the movie is that there is no single antagonist or villain in the movie. Maybe it is to make people to focus in Tim and Mary family’s life and love.
What I like about the movie the most is it’s soundtrack. ‘How Long Will I Love You’ by Ellie Goulding fits to the movie so well by different versions for each scene. The most impressive part was a jazz crew playing the song in jazz version in a subway where Tim and Marry pass through while going to work. The couple dances for a moment in front of the jazz crew and that scene made me feel so warm and happy as the director intended to.
Tim: We’re all traveling through time together, every day of our lives. All we can do is do our best to relish this remarkable ride.
Dad: I’d only give one piece of advice to anyone marrying. We’re all quite similar in the end. We all get old and tell the same tales too many times. But try and marry someone kind. And this is a kind man with a good heart.
