70: The Many Failings of The Time Traveler’s Wife (2009)

June 2, 2022

In anticipation of the new Time Traveler's Wife series on HBO, Glenn & Scott take a look at the 2009 movie adaptation. They discuss the tightrope walked by the novel's main love story and how the movie fails to maintain that balance, how the main characters feel different in the movie versus the book, how the secondary characters mostly disappear, and how everybody has their idiosyncrasies filed off.
