Blu-Ray Review: The Time Traveler’s Wife

The Time Traveler's Wife

The Time Traveler’s Wife Blu-ray Edition

Henry DeTamble is a time traveler who cannot control when or where he travels. When he meets beautiful Clare Abshire, she seems to know him, but he has never met her before. The two share a love that crosses time, beautiful and tragic. As Henry is unable to stop himself from disappearing from any certain time or place, usually the most inopportune of times.

The Time Traveler’s Wife is based on the novel of the same name by Audrey Niffenegger. Having read the novel, I had many preconceptions going in. And even though many details were left out that I thought were fairly important to the story, the overall feel and message of the story remains.

Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams star as the two time-crossed lovers, playing their roles to perfection. Though, the movie character of Henry is much more likeable than the drug-addicted novel version. And thankfully, some of the other darker events in the novel were left out.

I actually did not care for the book much at all. Though I appreciated the unique idea, it was too depressing for my taste. But I ended up really enjoying the movie version. It’s a fascinating and powerful love story with a touch of science fiction.

The Blu-ray edition includes a couple of featurettes, and a download copy on a separate disk.
