ABOUT TIME is an upcoming British romantic comedy science fiction film revolving around time travel where a young man tries to change his past to have a better future. Written and directed by Richard Curtis (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Bridget Jones’s Diary, Notting Hill, Love Actually, The Boat That Rocked), the film is based on his own screenplay and stars Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams and Bill Nighy.
At the age of 21, Tim Lake (Gleeson) discovers he can travel in time… The night after another unsatisfactory New Year party, Tim’s father (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 (McAdams). They fall in love, then an unfortunate time-travel incident means he’s never met her at all.
