It’s been months since I first saw the trailer for director Richard Curtis’ newest film and I’ve been waiting more or less patiently for its release. But I’m happy to finally announce that it’s almost time for About Time! Corny I know, but I had to go there.
Curtis, writer of Four Weddings and a Funeral and Notting Hill, ascended to the status of king of the British romantic comedy when he wrote and directed the consummate standard of the genre, 2003’s Love Actually. Now Curtis is back with a time traveling love story that looks like it might rival his earlier masterpiece in terms of humor and heart.
About Time is currently playing in limited release in select cities, but will be opening everywhere on Friday, November 8. (Editorial note: If you’re a DC-area local, this film’s actually already at the AMC Courthouse and the AMC Georgetown 14, so if this piece convinces you to check it out – you don’t have to wait long!)
Watch the trailer below – along with some reasons why you should see it!
