    Synopsis


    Somewhere in Time
    Christopher Reeve got away from Superman and related costume roles in this dramatic fantasy film, adapted from Richard Matheson's 1960s vintage novel Bid Time Return. A young playwright, Richard Collier (Reeve), is approached by an elderly woman on the occasion of his first triumph in 1972 -- all she says to him is "Come back to me" and leaves him with a watch that contains a picture of a ravishing young woman. Eight years later, he visits the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island and comes upon a photograph of the same woman, whom he discovers was an actress who made an appearance at the hotel in 1912. He becomes obsessed with the image and what the woman -- who died the night she approached him in 1972 -- meant by what she said. In a manner somewhat reminiscent of the film Laura, he falls in love with her and her image as he learns more about her life and career. Then he comes upon the suggestion of a professor at his former college that time travel may, in fact, be possible, using an extreme form of self-hypnosis to free the person from the place they occupy in the time-stream. Collier's feelings for the woman are so strong that he succeeds, bringing himself back to the hotel in 1912 on the eve of her triumph. He meets the actress, Elise McKenna (Jane Seymour), and the two fall in love despite the machinations of her obsessive, autocratic manager (Christopher Plummer), who feels threatened by Collier's presence. ~ Bruce Eder, Rovi

      A wonderfully romantic movie mixed with science fiction & time travel. It's an old fashioned film in the true sense of the meaning. If you love romance you will enjoy this film. Storyline - A young writer is met on the opening night of his first play by an old lady who begs him to "Come back to me". Mystified, he tries to find out about her, and learns that she is a famous stage actress from the early 1900s, Elise McKenna. Becoming more and more obsessed with her, he manages, by self hypnosis, to travel back in time where he meets her.

      The movie looks a little dated compared to movies these days, but the storyline is interesting. The line "Come back to me" starts the concept of going back in time to meet one true love. Jane Seymour looks lovely and Christopher Reeve's acting is well...Christopher Reeve.

      We saw this movie on cable a long time ago and thought how we would love to have it on DVD. We could never find it at our local stores where DVD's were sold. So when we went to Best Buys website and found it in Bluray, we ordered it right away.

      This is one of my most favorite movies of all times. Now after purchasing a Blu Ray version, I no longer need to rely on rental availability. I should have done this years ago.

      Upgrade if you have the DVD but don't expect miracles. It's a solid transfer but the original print wasn't the best to begin with.
