Blake Lively is captivating as Adaline, a 29-year-old who survives a near-death experience and from that day on, never grows older.  Adaline guards her secret and her heart for eight decades until a charming philanthropist (Michiel Huisman) and his parents (Harris Ford and Kathy Baker) force Adaline to confront her destiny in this unforgettable tale about the timeless power of love.  Score by Rob Simonsen.
