About Time

Take a simple premise like being able to time travel to any part of your life that you lived before and then explore that in a romantic comedy and you end up with an incredibly charming and sentimental movie.  It is part Groundhog Day and part The Butterfly Effect, but more a story about life and how we choose to live it.  Domhnall Gleeson played Ron Weasley's older brother in the Harry Potter movies and he has a Rubert Grint quality about him as an affable comic loser trying to make good in life.  How he uses his time travel ability to improve his life has many consequences both good and bad. 
The movie blends all its elements really well.  It will leave you with a smile and a few tears. 
Rating:  * * * .5
