Based on the best-selling book about a love that transcends time. Clare has been in love with Henry her entire life.

Despite the fact that Henry’s travels force them apart with no warning, Clare desperately tries to build a life with her one true love. --© Warner Bros
I just finished reading The Time Traveller's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger and simply had to see the movie straight away despite some of the critics hailing it as a 'not as good as the book' movie.
Regardless of much of the book not appearing in the movie (including the explicit sex descriptions within the pages) I found this movie quite interesting and very enjoyable. I don't agree with the critics who feel that the book is better than the film - it is however just as good, but without the racey bits. I don't think the story has been robbed and feel that the film makers have been true to the essence or vibe or the original story.
I do believe however, that if I hadn't read the book first, I would have possibly needed to see it twice to fully understand the time travel concept.
Eric Bana naked is not overly annoying for any female who is an admirer and one cannot help being drawn to feeling empathy for his character.
Although this seems to be a unique love that transcends time, I can't help but think of how frustrating the reality of a husband (Henry) who is continually dropping in and out on his longsuffering and beautiful wife (Clare (Rachel McAdams) at the most in opportune times. Very believeable acting!
This film is worthy of your 'must see' list.
