Love is in the air again in the latest film from writer-director Richard Curtis (Love Actually), but this time he’s interested in exploring the multiple facets of the splendored emotional state. An eager-to-be-in-love young man (Domhnall Gleeson) gets a double whammy when he reaches his 21st birthday. His father (the lovely Bill Nighy) introduces him to a family secret (their ability to travel in time) a few days before he meets Mary (Rachel McAdams), the potential love of his life, but he must learn the limits of love and this phenomenal ability, which he does in a film that is much more emotionally resonant than the typical rom-com fare. It’s about time, right? Opens wide Nov. 8. (R) Grade: B+
