Inconsequential, but there's no denying this is a well made, nicely paced and intriguingly syrupy Sunday afternoon of a movie. The highlight is Harrison Ford, who delivers his best performance in many, many years (BR2049 included).
Despite its' oft convenient narrative, via voice over, the film makes up in charm what it lacks in believability. Blake Lively is quite good here finally living up to the promise she showed in 'Pippa Lee'. This is one of those romantic stories that one surrenders to or openly scorns...viewer's choice.
I dont know why people disliked this movie so much, it has an interesting history and it s very sophisticaded. Obviously it s not well exploited as it should be, I mean the main character has been crossed decades with so many historic facts which could easily be portraited in the screen instead the weak Romance between Blake Lively ( who s acting very good ) and her affair. But it s beautifull, anyway.
A good supporting cast hence Harrison Ford and Ellen Burstyn makes this film watchable. Blake Lively does deliver but somehow all of her establish shots looks like fashion shoots - especially when the storyline stretches over 60-70 years. Style over substance but decent acting all in all.
