It's Movie Week: The Time Traveler's Wife

In 2003, first time author Audrey Niffenegger published a haunting story about a man who has known his wife for her whole life. However, they are not childhood sweethearts: he has a genetic disorder that causes him to skip through time against his will. He visits her throughout her life, from childhood before she knows who he is, through her twilight years. The rights to The Time Traveler's Wife were purchased by Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston, so at the time I pictured the power couple in the titular roles. When Angelina came along, I was afraid this movie would languish in the settlement.

Now I'll have to picture Eric Bana (Munich, The Hulk) disappearing on Rachel McAdams (The Notebook). The movie is in post production and should be arriving in December.
