The timeless, irreplaceable story The Time Machine, made into a 2002 film starring Guy Pierce, captures it's audience with it's impressive graphics and epic story line. Alexander (Pierce) experiences a misfortune he will never recover from. His beloved fiance Emma, played by Sienna Guillory, is shot in a mugging the night he proposes. Determined to change the single event that he can't recover from, Alexander builds a time machine capable of traveling to anytime in the past or future. This invention triggers an unforgettable adventure that no one would have predicted.
Accidentally traveling 800,000 years in the future, he appears in an unfamiliar world. I couldn't wrap my mind around the concept that the Earth is constantly changing, and logically, so does civilization. Adapting in a life different from his own Alexander manages to save people from a war he might have never discovered.
Based on a novel by H.G Wells and directed by his great-grandson Simon Wells, The Time Machine was nominated for an Oscar and well-liked by all ages. I highly recommend this film for any occasion. It pushes the imagination and encourages drastic change in the lives of others. Guy Pierce is extremely talented in his roll and Alexander and must have had fun filming the movie.
