Somewhere in Time is the story of a young writer who sacrifices his life in the present to find happiness in the past, where true love awaits him. Young Richard Collier (Christopher Reeve) is approached by an elderly woman who gives him an antique gold watch and who pleads with him to return in time with her. Years later, Richard Collier is overwhelmed by a photograph of a beautiful young woman (Jane Seymour). Another picture of this woman in her later years reveals to him that she is the same woman who had given him the gold watch. Collier then becomes obsessed with returning to 1912 and the beautiful young woman who awaits him there.

    I absolutely loved this movie so much. I love the costumes and the music. Christopher Reeve is so dashing and Jane Seymour is definitely the loveliest actress I’ve ever seen. The story is beautiful, romantic, and of course incredibly heart-wrenching at the end. My favorite parts were when they reunited and their love scene after, and 3/4 of the ‘picnic on the carpet’ scene🥺. Absolutely love it 💕💕
  • Sweet Love Story

    By Cestorel.RN
    Before I got to know about rebirth and transmigration stories, this movie got me hooked. Time travelling back to the past and finding your true love.🥰. Truly an unforgettable story. This was recommended to me by my aunt when she heard me playing the musical score for this. Got me interested since the male lead is Christopher Reeves, Mr. Superman😍. Anyhow you will fall in love with this.🥰

    Don’t listen to the critics. This is a timeless classic love story. I remember watching it nearly 40 years ago and it made me get emotional just the same way this time. Ready to watch it again!

    By Tam Coop
    Recently we took a trip to Mackinac Island where this movie was filmed and stayed at the Grand Hotel and stayed in the named Somewhere in Time suite. I had to watch this iconic beautiful movie. I fell in love again. I will never forget what I felt there. Somewhere in Time💙🌸💙🚣‍♀️⛴🐎 we had afternoon tea, wore lace dresses, and bicycled by blue sparkling waters while viewing the most beautiful flowers 🌺 I have ever seen.
  • Somewhere in Time... a true gem!

    By JeremyC21
    When this film was first released in 1980, some critics were less than enthusiastic about it... thank goodness that in the years that have followed, Somewhere in Time has been re-evaluated and is considered by some to be a cult classic. Even though the film is almost 40 years old, I did not hear about it until I saw Avengers: Endgame in theaters a few months back. More specifically, it is referenced in the scene where Rhodey names off some other cult classics when discussing time travel. Getting to the point, I believe it is one of the best films I’ve ever seen! Everything from the musical score, scenery, acting, and writing is absolutely on point. However, it is Christopher Reeve’s performance that is truly the heart of the story. As Richard Collier, he is generally calm, polite, and somewhat reserved in nature. However, he can shift to being overly dramatic at times to hilarious results. Even veteran actor, Christopher Plummer (most famous for his role as Captain Von Trapp in The Sound of Music) delivers an astounding performance as Elise McKenna’s charming, but overprotective and controlling manager, William Fawcett Robinson. The chemistry demonstrated between Chris Reeve and Jane Seymour is absolutely heartwarming. As a matter of fact, they would become very close friends. Somewhere in Time began filming in 1979, right after Reeve completed the first Superman film. Even though he will forever be remembered as Clark Kent/Superman, I feel that the energy he put into bringing the character of Richard Collier to life is often overlooked. I honestly don’t understand why the film has a score of 61% on Rotten Tomatoes... I believe it deserves more recognition. Sure, the ending may be bittersweet, but altogether, this masterpiece always brings a smile to my face. If you enjoy a good romance or a good time travel story, I would highly recommend checking SIT out! If possible, I would give it a 10 star rating!

  • Personally Meaningful

    My wife and I saw this when it came out in 1980 and have owned various video incarnations of it for as long as they have been available. She died suddenly and unexpectedly at a relatively young age which has made this movie even more poignant in my collection as it was, perhaps, her favorite love story of all. I bought Mr. Barry's sheet music and played it for her on the piano back then. For me it is the most nostalgic movie of the 1,700 (or so) I own because it brings me closer to the love of my life.
