Year Released: 2013
Director: Richard Curtis
Stars: Domhnall Gleeson, Rachel McAdams, Bill Nighy, Lydia Wilson, Tom Hollander, Lindsay Duncan
Tearjerker moment: There are any number of scenes in "About Time" that could cause one to cry, but perhaps the most powerful of them is the final time that Tim goes back in time to see his father. The two men play one last game of table tennis together and, as a final goodbye, they travel back to when Tim was younger and experience an afternoon on the beach. Tim will go off and lead his life with his expanded family, while his father is destined for a death which Tim has already experienced. It is a moment of happiness tinged with upset and the knowledge that life can be both beautiful and horrible at the same time.
