R | | Drama, Romance
As a young New York City couple goes from college romance to marriage and the birth of their first child, the unexpected twists of their journey create reverberations that echo over continents and through lifetimes.
Life Itself ... takes place on two different continents and in two distinct languages, English and Spanish. Dan Fogelman admits to being paralyzed by the challenge that this represented.
Let's get married.
Abby: ...We've been dating less than a year.
Will: I know. And I feel like I've shown incredible restraint waiting this long.
Abby: I love you... but I may not be equipped to be loved this much.
The entire film, despite covering four generations of people, all seems to take place in the present day. There's nothing to differentiate the varied time periods.
