After seeing “Frozen” with my younger cousins at the start of Thanksgiving Break, I opted for something with a little more depth and less talking animals for my last night home. I have “Love Actually” on a loop during December, so I hoped its creators would work their magic in their new film “About Time.” Though I expected a standard romantic comedy when I walked into the theater, I was pleasantly surprised by the film. Director Richard Curtis avoided most of the stereotypical pitfalls that most films in this genre experience. He dismantled the rom-com formula in favor of a sentimental, unconventional love story. While the film succeeded with its quirky, relatable characters, it fell flat with its occasional slips into trite and cliché territory.
