About Time : Rewriting History for Love (And Beyond Amazon Prime)

While not currently available on Prime, Richard Curtis's About Time remains a must-watch for fans of thoughtful rom-coms. Tim (Domhnall Gleeson) uses his time-travel abilities to pursue Mary (Rachel McAdams), leading to both heartwarming and hilarious results. But the film's message goes beyond love: it's about savoring life's simple joys and recognizing that even with the power to alter the past, the present moment holds its own beauty.

Tip: Search for "About Time" on other streaming platforms to enjoy its unique take on romance and life lessons.

Yesterday: A World Without The Beatles, Brought to You by Prime Video

Imagine waking up to a reality where The Beatles never existed, and you're the only one who remembers their legendary songs. That's the delightful premise of Yesterday, available on Amazon Prime Video. Himesh Patel gives a charming performance as Jack Malik, who grapples with fame and the price of artistic integrity. Meanwhile, Lily James portrays Ellie, whose unwavering support forms the film's emotional core. "Yesterday" is a love letter to timeless music and reminds us that true love often means celebrating another's brilliance, not just our own.

Coming 2 America: Royal Romance with Prime Video

Also available on Amazon Prime Video, Coming 2 America reconnects us with Prince Akeem (Eddie Murphy) and Semmi (Arsenio Hall) as they embark on a new adventure. The sequel focuses on Akeem's son, Lavelle (Jermaine Fowler), and his blossoming romance with the ambitious Mirembe (Nomzamo Mbatha). The film offers a modern twist on classic tropes, exploring cultural differences and the balance between tradition and personal dreams within a love story.

The Power of Prime Video: Exploring Love, Legacy, and Music

Amazon Prime Video's selection highlights the diverse ways love stories can unfold, from the fantastical to the refreshingly grounded:

  • The Limits of Control: Both "Yesterday" and "About Time" (in its own way) remind us that external circumstances, be it fame or time-bending abilities, can't guarantee happiness.

  • Love as a Conscious Choice:  Whether it's recognizing unwavering support (like in "Yesterday") or a partner's independent spirit (as seen in "Coming 2 America"), healthy love transcends expected formulas.

  • Music as a Unifying Force: The Beatles' iconic tunes in "Yesterday" create a sense of shared joy, proving the enduring power of music to connect people across differences.

Your Perfect Amazon Prime Movie Night

If you're seeking a poignant mix of humor and introspection, consider adding "About Time" to your watchlist (even if not on Prime). For a feel-good musical experience with a dash of 'what-if', "Yesterday" on Prime Video won't disappoint. And if you're in the mood for lighthearted laughs and a modern take on a classic fairy tale, Prime's "Coming 2 America" fits the bill.
