“The Time Traveler’s
Wife” is based on the best-selling book about a love that transcends
time. Clare (Rachel McAdams) has been in love with Henry (Eric Bana)
her entire life. She believes they are destined to be together, even
though she never knows when they will be separated: Henry is a time
traveler—cursed with a rare genetic anomaly that causes him to live his
life on a shifting timeline, skipping back and forth through his
lifespan with no control. 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.
“The Time Traveler’s Wife” was directed by Robert Schwentke (“Flightplan”) from a screenplay by Academy Award winner Bruce Joel Rubin (“Ghost”), based on the novel by Audrey Niffenegger. Nick Wechsler and Dede Gardner produced the film, with Brad Pitt, Richard Brener, Michele Weiss and Justis Greene serving as executive producers. The co-producer is Kristin Hahn.
Heading the film’s cast as Clare and Henry are Rachel McAdams (“Red Eye,” “The Notebook”) and Eric Bana (“Star Trek,” “Munich”). “The Time Traveler’s Wife” also stars Arliss Howard, Ron Livingston and Stephen Tobolowsky.
The behind-the-scenes creative team includes director of photography Florian Ballhaus (“Marley & Me”), production designer Jon Hutman (upcoming “My Sister’s Keeper”), Academy Award-winning editor Thom Noble (“Witness”) and Academy Award-nominated costume designer Julie Weiss (“Frida,” “12 Monkeys”). The music is by Mychael Danna (“Lakeview Terrace”).
