Lee Toland Krieger,
"The Age of Adaline"
To be forever young—is this a blessing or a curse? This is the question that a 107-year-old woman asks herself daily in director Lee Toland Krieger’s romance The Age of Adaline. Blake Lively’s Adaline has not aged a day over 29 as a result of a freak accident outside of her hometown of San Francisco. Living in hiding, Adaline changes her identify every few years to prevent the authorities from capturing and exploiting her gift. But she fears outliving her adult daughter (Ellen Burstyn) and getting too close to any man who shows an interest in her. That is until she meets handsome philanthropist Ellis (Michiel Huisman), forcing her to confront her past, present, and future to collide. The Age of Adaline also stars Harrison Ford and Ellen Kathy Baker as Ellis’ parents. Director Lee Toland Krieger, who previously directed The Vicious Kind, with Adam Scott, and Celeste & Jesse Forever with Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg. The Age of Adaline opened April 24 in Austin.
