Wed Jan 23Richard Curtis (writer of 'Four Weddings and a Funeral' and 'Notting Hill; writer-director of 'Love, Actually' and 'The Boat that Rocked') returns with a comedy-romance tinged with sci-fi. Centrestage is Domhnall Gleeson (son of Brendan), playing 21-year-old Tim, a young man who's unlucky in love but who decides to try to alter his luck when his father (Bill Nighy) tells him that all the men in their family possess the ability to travel back in time. Tim uses his powers to find romance, but the path to smooth love with the woman (Rachel McAdams) he meets is rocky and paved with mishaps. Curtis's last film, 'The Boat that Rocked', a comedy set in the 1960s world of the pirate radio station, was bloated and not especially funny. Neither was it a big hit, so here's hoping that Curtis is back in the territory of the warm, witty romantic comedy.
