Lionsgate released their new romantic/drama flick, “The Age of Adaline,” into theaters this weekend, and all the top movie critics have submitted their reviews.

The movie stars: Harrison Ford, Blake Lively, Ellen Burstyn, Kathy Baker, Amanda Crew and Michiel Huisman. I’ve added blurbs from a few of the critics,below.

Matt Zoller Seitz at, gave it a decent 75 score, saying: ” Ford’s voice — always deep, lowered an octave by age and one more by William’s longing — is even more powerful. This is Ford’s best performance since “The Fugitive,” maybe since “Witness.”

Kyle Smith from the New York Post, gave it a 75 score ,stating: ” The film is as tender and endearing as a lamb, a lamb at rest in a fragrant atmosphere. It’s a film that has a determined, unironic respect for things past. It’s as if millennial hipsterism, with its feigned fascination for all things retro, took a surprising further step: actual respect for learning, for experience, for wisdom.”

Leah Greenblatt from Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 75 grade. She said: “Lively looks fantastic in every era’s fashion as it passes, and she does a nice job of conveying Adaline’s old-world diction and reserve; there’s no Gossip in this girl.”

Betsy Sharkey over at the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 60 score, saying: “Not “An Affair to Remember,” mind you, but a welcome change from the Nicholas Sparks brand of mush that has overtaken the hearts-and-flowers corner of movieland.”

Katherine Pushkar at the New York Daily News, gave it a 60 score. She stated: ” Plausibility, shmausibility. This is pretty schmaltz done right.”
