Critics Love Rob Simonsen’s Score On ‘The Age Of Adaline’ As Fans Turned Out In Droves
Not long after Adaline’s brief encounter with the young document forger, there’s a flashback to 1906, where the story really begins. This is when her charmed life starts unraveling. The back story is mostly transmitted through picture postcard imagery, her handsome engineer husband’s untimely death, the grief-stricken young widow skidding off the road in a freak snowstorm. Which requires another detour to mention the gently aged sensibility caught like lightning in a bottle by cinematographer David Lanzenberg and production designer Claude Pare. Rob Simonsen’s lyrical music accompanies all this beauty. –Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times
