‘The Age of Adaline’ Trailer: Blake Lively Discovers Lonely Immortality, But at Least She Looks Great
A little over a month ago we saw the first trailer for The Age of Adaline, the new romantic drama that, at first glance, seems like it could be a bit schmaltzy. But with a great cast and the skills of director Lee Toland Krieger (Celeste and Jesse Forever), The Age of Adaline looks like it could be rather surprising. A new trailer for the film has been released, further highlighting the solemn beauty of both Blake Lively and the film itself.
In The Age of Adaline, Lively plays the titular lead, a woman who emerges from a harrowing accident in the 1930s to discover that she can no longer age. While her family and loved ones all grow old around her, Adaline remains the same. Due to her affliction, she doesn’t allow herself to grow too close to anyone romantically, living in a sort of self-imposed loneliness.
The second trailer is basically a shorter version of the first, but no less elegant. Krieger, who also previously directed the great indie drama The Vicious Kind (featuring a fantastic, serious performance from the typically comedic Adam Scott), seemingly brings his sharp eye for powerful but subtle direction to The Age of Adaline, making this a film that probably shouldn’t be overlooked.
