A comedy about love and time travel

At the age of 21, Tim Lake (Domhnall Gleeson) discovers he can travel in time… The night after another unsatisfactory New Year party, Tim’s father (Bill Nighy) tells his son that the men in his family have always had the ability to travel through time. Tim can’t change history, but he can change what happens and has happened in his own life—so he decides to make his world a better place…by getting a girlfriend. Sadly, that turns out not to be as easy as you might think. Moving from the Cornwall coast to London to train as a lawyer, Tim finally meets the beautiful but insecure Mary (Rachel McAdams). They fall in love, then an unfortunate time-travel incident means he’s never met her at all. So they meet for the first time again—and again—but finally, after a lot of cunning time-traveling, he wins her heart.

    Production Notes

    For more than three decades, filmmaker RICHARD CURTIS has crafted his signature voice in the world of movies and television, giving audiences unforgettable characters who have alternately allowed us to laugh at our ever-so-human foibles and to share a tear at the extraordinary journeys that accompany our ordinary lives.

    Curtis began to hone that voice as the writer of classic television shows such as Not the Nine O’Clock News, Blackadder, Mr. Bean and The Vicar of Dibley. When he moved along to the screen, Curtis took worldwide audiences by welcome surprise with his writing in the tender, poignant comedy classics known as Four Weddings and a Funeral, Notting Hill and Bridget Jones’s Diary. This experience set the stage for his directorial debut, the global blockbuster Love Actually, followed by his love letter to’60s pop music, Pirate Radio, which he also helmed.

    Character Quotes

    Mary: I think I’ll go for … mmmm, yes. Thanks for asking me, and thank you for not going for one of those melodramatic proposals with lots of people around. I hate other people.

    Mary: Where would you like to get married?
    Tim: Home, I’d hate anywhere else.
    Mary: Who should be the priest?
    Tim: It’ll have to be the local bloke with yellow teeth and the massive unibrow

    Quotes from Rachel


    “It’s a message so many of us can relate to, and I also wanted to work with Richard Curtis. … I was definitely a fan of his work … Love Actually, Notting Hill, Bridget Jones’ Diary. He’s so prolific. And I also heard it may be Richard’s last movie! So I thought this could be a once in a lifetime opportunity.”
    -On why she signed on to the movie (The Stir)

    “What I liked about it was that it wasn’t about a romance that falls apart and then picks itself back up again. That’s what you’d expect to happen in this film and I like that Richard was looking to do something else. Maybe it doesn’t always have to come crashing down as there are people out there who are making a life together. It’s not always easy but the turmoil doesn’t always have to be between them, it can be happening around them so we can then watch a couple being a team within that.”
    -On what she likes about the story (NZ Herald)

    “I had heard that nasty rumor, and it’s one of the reasons I did the film. I’m such a fan of his, and I thought, “Well, this might be my only chance.” So, I reached out to him for that reason, too. I hope it’s not. It’s tough because he’s taking time away from film to save the world. He’s so altruistic and raises so much money to fight poverty. It’s hard to ask him to take time away from that. It feels selfish. So, I can’t fault him for why he’s making the switch. He’s an incredible person. He’s one of the greatest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing, and he brings that to the film. I felt like we were living the film we were making.”
    -On how she feels that this might be Curtis’ last directional feature (Collider)

    “We just played around with it. It was also trying to go from younger to older, and bangs just automatically scream young. It’s so funny because it was actually a hairpiece, so we could go quickly from young to older. We forgot to put it on one day, and my hairstylist was like, “Wait, the fringe!,” and she was running after me with this little piece of hair. It was slightly embarrassing. I probably would not do that again, but it just seemed like her.”
    -On her character’s bangs (Collider)


    Quotes from Cast & Crew


    “It’s a romantic film which has a lot of time travel in it and a wonderful Irish actor Domhnall Gleeson is in it and Rachel McAdams is in it who is the greatest actress I’ve worked with recently. I can’t say that because of the other ones. And Bill Nighy is in it. It’s about love, life and time Travel.”
    -Richard Curtis, director (Graham Norton Show)

    “I don’t think Rachel knows, but she is the greatest actress in the world. And I’ve told her that a few times. It was absolutely gorgeous and every scene it seems if though my lines were not necessary cause she just she just felt like what I wanted to say in the scene from the very beginning of the scene until the end.”
    -Richard Curtis, director (Munich Q&A)

    “I think she should have won an Oscar for The Notebook.”
    -Richard Curtis, director (Empire Magazine)

    “I’ve always seen her in films and thought, ‘God, I want to have lunch with her. I want to be her friend!’ So to be playing her best friend feels quite surreal!”
    -Vanessa Kirby, co-star (Instyle UK)

    “It’s about love, live, death and birth and it’s about all those things. And how to live your life but it’s also a time travel comedy romantic thing. It’s very different to what he has done before I think. His heart is in the same place, but it’s told differently. I am extremely excited, I loved making that film very much. Rachel McAdams is kind of wonderful, she is amazing.”
    -Domhnall Gleeson, co-star (Collider)

    “I already thought Rachel was amazing and then I met her and she was, so beforehand you go: ‘What? She’s the girl? I’m meant to be her boyfriend? Are we really going to try and sell that to an audience?’ You’re all self deprecating because that’s just the way people think. And then you meet her and you just feel like it’s the most natural thing in the world because that’s the way she is, she’s that good.”
    -Domhnall Gleeson, co-star (The Sun UK)

    “I had Rachel record some audio for me, one of my favourite poems..and I would listen to that every morning when I woke up. The first thing I would hear in the morning time would be this lovely voice saying these lovely things.”
    -Domhnall Gleeson, co-star (News Talk)

    “I think she is probably perfect for any role. I think she is just, it’s a cliche, she is touched by genius. She does what Richard Curtis calls 360 degree acting. In other words: there is no wholes in it, you can’t get behind it. She comes apparently super prepared or maybe just instinctively brilliant and anything you require of her she just delivers without asking.”
    -Bill Nighy, co-star (Entertainment Tonight)


    Critical Reception


    “More than just a time-travel rom-com, this is a movie that asks you questions and doesn’t sugar-coat as many of the answers as you’d expect. Smart and sweet, funny and genuinely moving. Should probably come with a ‘there’s something in my eye’ warning.”
    -Mark Dinning (Empire Magazine)

    “McAdams is a joy, matching Gleeson’s comic timing beat for beat, and an early sequence in which Tim relives their first night together is as good as anything Curtis has ever done.”
    -Robbie Collin (Telegraph)

    “Gleeson and McAdams (in a role to which Zooey Deschanel was once attached) have a radiant, believable chemistry that keeps the film aloft, while the other actors glide through effortlessly, even if many of the character types (the quirky younger sister, the embarrassing best friends) are a bit too familiar from previous Curtis efforts, especially Nighy’s affable, laid-back patriarch.”
    -Leslie Felperin (Variety)
