Blake Lively is simply gorgeous, and a great actress into the bargain. A simple concept, yet very deep: Would you really like to be immortal?

Interesting plot, but definitely very slow at times. Some of the comments below spoil some of the surprises of the story so scroll at your own risk! I liked seeing Blake Lively in this role, she was graceful and poised throughout. It is certainly a film worth watching.

Really enjoyed this movie. Lee did a wonderful job of taking a story line usually done with men in mind and making a great movie with women. Also enjoyed seeing how they made Vancouver BC look like San Fransisco.

I found this to be a very strange movie. Not believable at all. Her daughter aged very quickly in what seemed to be a very short time. So she finally decides to have some love in her life and it turns out that her love interest's father is a past lover. Not a good plot at all! To each their own, this is evident by reading the other comments. I would not recommend this movie.

It is a good movie, worth watching. My trouble with the script is that aging is not just physical, there is also maturity evolution that was not well reflected. Tough to believe how they get in love with a guy in their twenties when she was about 100 and for me the scenes with her older daughter were not believable. The voice from the future "explaining" some aspects from the movie did not make much sense, they should have found another way to achieve the same. But still, a good movie to watch.

This movie is okay for kids. No sex or violence is in it. It moves at a slow pace. It is only moderately interesting. The story is weak. I give this movie 5/10.

I wish she'd ended up with Harrison Ford. :(

This movie was very entertaining. I was interested the whole time, and the main character was very relatable. I would recommend.

The story of Adaline and how she comes to be ageless is interesting, but the love story was so boring I kept falling asleep. I think part of it is that Blake Lively was in four films this year and the guy playing Ellis has played Daario Naharis on Game of Thrones for the past four years. I've seen each of them with so many other people/actors, I just don't see them together at all. I also found it disappointing that the science didn't make that much sense really and Adaline seemed stiff and unfeeling. It didn't make her very likable.

I almost gave this one a miss due to its advertising (the trailer with a cop pulling Adeline over and commenting on her age). Am so glad that I watched it "anyway". Lovely chick flick with thoughts into what could happen when you stay the same age while those around you do not.

Sexual Content: Although no sex is shown on screen, it's heavily implied. When Adaline visits Ellis's house, they share a room and bed. It is implied that she is naked in bed, and the two kiss passionately. Adaline wears a revealing dress.
