Grazia Film Club: Your Reactions To Richard Curtis's Latest Offering, 'About Time'

[Universal Pictures]

Ever imagined how perfect life might be with the ability to erase every cringe-inducing moment? Of course you have. But what if fantasy became reality? For Tim Lake, star of this season’s must-see movie About Time, it does. And it makes for a hilarious, yet utterly compelling, love story that – quite literally – transcends time. From award-winning director and screen-writer Richard Curtis, and starring Rachel McAdams and Bill Nighy, About Time is the story of endearing Tim, played by Domnhall Gleeson who is told an incredible family secret by his father: that every man in his family has the ability to relive their past. And what better way to use his new gift, than to pursue love? On his – often amusingly challenging – quest to win the heart of beautiful Mary (Rachel McAdams) an unfortunate twist in time teaches Tim that to find true love, he may have to give up the past. Prepare to laugh, prepare to cry. That's exactly what happened last month at the Grazia Film Club when we held a reader screening of the film and asked you, dear readers, to be the critics. Here are the best of your reactions…

‘Funny, romantic and real. It taught me to appreciate times I’ve shared with loved ones,’ Amaka Onyekwelu, London

‘It was like Notting Hill meets The Time Traveler’s Wife,’ Kerry Rhodes, London

‘I would recommend it. A fun bit of escapism but also delivers moments that pull at the heart strings,’ Lucas Hurd-Bennett, Bristol

‘Heartwarming, feel-good and funny. It’s an easy watch and perfect for a girls’ night out,’ Carly McAllister, London

‘I would recommend this film to a friend as it is a fun bit of escapism but also delivers moments that pull the heart strings,’ Lucas Hurd-Bennett Bristol
