Married couples dealing, compromising and adjusting to each other’s shortcomings is a common and expected behavior to make a marriage work. But what if your husband’s limitation is something that is unapproachable and hard to overcome even by your better half?
Synopsis: Based on a popular novel written by Audrey Niffenegger, ‘The Time Traveler’s Wife“, asks us to join us in the journey of Clare (Rachel McAdams) and Henry (Eric Bana), a madly in love couple. Clare though in love with Henry, has to accept an upsetting fact that he suffers from a rare genetic disorder that causes him to time travel. Yes, Henry is a Time Traveler and Clare; The Time Traveler’s Wife ! Both Henry and Clare have no control over his traveling to and fro in his lifespan. His erratic trampolining from one phase of his life to another, over a period of time puts a strain on their relationship. But Clare decides to test their love and give her best to put the pieces of their dismantled life back together.
The video of the film depicts a strong hold of romantic interlude between the couple rather than the fictional concept of time travel. The poster also doesn’t give out much about the story. Whether and how the director has used the notion of time travel as a sub plot to build up the romanticism between the characters is waiting to be seen.
