Age of Adeline

Not sure if it’s only me, but Blake Lively looked more ravishing than Ever in this movie. To be quite honest, I was always more of a Blair Waldorf fan than a Serena fan in GG but Blake certainly was a jaw-drop in this specific movie.

|A young woman, born at the turn of the 20th century, is rendered ageless after an accident. After many solitary years, she meets a man who complicates the eternal life she has settled into.|

Being forever young is our dream. However, while watching this movie, it made more sense to grow old – especially with your loved ones. In the movie, Adeline changes her identity every decade so that she wouldn’t be questioned by the authorities. She falls in love once, but has to run away due to the fact that she cannot confess her reality to her lover. Small world it is, she falls in love after years with the son of the same man she loved first. Scared from change, she gets the same dog over and over again – and keeps a catalogue of the pictures all the dogs she adopted throughout the years.

Come to think about it, even living long is not worth it if you’re going to lose one day all the people and souls you care for. Investing your emotions again and starting over again and again is draining. Stability somehow makes more sense. Living long will only make sense if its for all. Not sure if immortality is truly worth it anyways, maybe being mortal is what keeps us enthusiastic about life.
