Hannah Russell (Mags Creative: Deliciously Ella, Honestly with Clemmie Telford) and Georgie Grier (The Screenster Podcast) join Flixwatcher to review the 2013 Richard Curtis romantic drama About Time.

Tim (Domhnall Gleeson) is let into a secret by his father James (Bill Nighy) that all the men (yes, the men only) can travel back in time. Tim uses this opportunity to go back in time to stalk/make Mary (Rachel McAdams) fall in love with him. There is more time travel that services his own best interests (if he prevents his sister from being involved in a car crash he would have a son instead of a daughter) and again when he nearly forfeits having another child because it would stop him traveling back in time to spend more time with his father.

It’s two hours about a very selfish man or a charming romantic drama depending on how you look at things. Ignoring any inconsistencies about the logistics of time travel About Time favours male white privilege and all of the female characters are poorly written (Mary’s only interest is Kate Moss).

Scores

Both guests and Kobi found it charming and heartwarming, let’s just say Helen was less favourable towards it! Despite low scores across the board from Helen About Time scores 3.86 overall.
