About the film:
Clare, a beautiful art student, and Henry, an adventuresome librarian, have known each other since Clare was six and Henry was thirty-six, and were married when Clare was twenty-three and Henry thirty-one. Impossible but true, because Henry is one of the first people diagnosed with Chrono-Displacement Disorder: periodically his genetic clock resets and he finds himself misplaced in time, pulled to moments of emotional gravity in his life, past and future. His disappearances are spontaneous, his experiences unpredictable, alternately harrowing and amusing.
Rated PG-13 for thematic elements, brief disturbing images, nudity and sexuality.

I can't wait to see this movie! I have read the book around five times now and it is one of my favourites! I hope the film is equally as good otherwise it will be a huge let down!
