The Time Traveler’s Wife
Sweet Rachel McAdams has a problem. Her husband mysteriously jumps through time at the worst moments. This leads to uncomfortable situations like their first meeting when she is six and he’s in his 20s and very naked. He’s played by Eric Bana, so maybe it’s possible to forgive the boy many things. Like the best-seller it’s based on, this romance never lets its clever sci-fi twists get too tangled in strong, smart characters that should be together. It may not impress the boyfriend with the Avatar tattoo very much—although what are you doing with that loser anyway?—but Wife is the perfect compliment to a wintry afternoon and a bag of chocolate-covered macadamia nuts.
Extras: “Making of” featurette.
