PG-13 | | Drama, Fantasy, Romance
A young woman, born at the turn of the 20th century, is rendered ageless after an accident. After many solitary years, she meets a man who complicates the eternal life she has settled into.
The story Ellis tells Adeline during their underground date about the wreckage and how it's been discovered resembles exactly the storyline told in Robin Sloans short story "Ajax Penumbra 1969", a prequel to his novel "Mr. Penumbra's 24-hour bookstore" from 2012.
On December 31, 2014, a taxicab traveled through San Francisco, from Chinatown to Marin. The car carried a single passenger: a woman, her birth name Adaline Bowman, current alias Jennifer Larson. This is the first and last chapter of her story.
When they are playing Trivial Pursuit, one of the questions is, "When and where was the Hulahoop introduced?" Adeline says, "At the World's Fair in Schenectady, New York in 1956," and the guidebook confirms her answer as correct. There was no World's Fair in Schenectady, NY in 1956.
