Time travel is one of those storylines that may be very moving or very stuffy, thought-provoking or groan-inducing, Insightful or a wreck. It’s a really tricky and delicate portion of the science fiction and romance.
Many film directors and screenwriters have handled the subject throughout time, with results which range from forgettable, to quirky and funny, to bracingly romantic.
It supplies a twist that both shocks and asks a lot of the audience.
There’s also something to be said for some time travel romances. The premise appeals to a broad audience. After all, who has not considered the possibility of reincarnation, of time traveling, of the prospect of a missing love forgotten somewhere in time? There is an allure to some thing we could almost conceive of as being possible.
In the 2006 play “The Lake House,” Kate Foster played with Sandra Bullock and Alex Wyler played by Keanu Reeves really are a couple separated by two years, who convey through love letters exchanged via a mailbox away from the lake home where Kate resides (Alex inhabited the area two years before).
A twist in the storyline reveals that Alex died in Kates arms until she transferred to the lake home, and it is only through their letters that they come to recognize one another. Ultimately, Kate will keep Alex from a fatal accident and the two come together at last. The movie is heavy on the romance, but the element of time traveling speaks to the expectation for second chances and larger-than-life love.
After their initial meeting, Henry goes back in time to meet his wife Clare at different stages of her life, all which occurred before they met. His disorder complicates their union and their capacity to have children, and leaves his entire life in peril due to an accident that occurs while he is traveling through time. The two presumably wind up together in the end, but just like all excellent time travel romances it would not be time traveling without a bittersweet twist.
A departure from such time birmanie lac inle by chance plot traces is “Somewhere In Time,” where Richard Collier played with Christopher Reeves allows himself to be hypnotized to be able to go back in time and discover a beautiful actress Elise McKenna played by Jane Seymour with whom he falls in love after watching her photograph. The two are kept aside from the woman’s supervisor, who worries the romance will destroy her career.
Richard ultimately returns to present-day with no fan, then dies and is reunited with her.
These three tales are gut-wrenching for the horrible elements of their plots, on a deeper level. They also talk to those of us whom recognize what it is like to mourn love missing, who long for one more chance, that expect to be reunited with a lost love one day, finally repairing our bleeding hearts.
