Win tickets to Tuesday preview of About Time

Director Richard Curtis is known for romance flicks such as Notting Hill (1999) and Love Actually (2003), and his latest film, About Time, is another saccharine love story. But, this time, it involves time travel.

Set for release in cinemas here next Thursday, the British romance comedy centres on 21-year-old Tim (Domhnall Gleeson of Harry Potter fame), who can revisit any moment in his life, thus enabling him to try things differently until he does them perfectly.

He decides to use his special ability to win the heart of Mary (Rachel McAdams).

But the course of true love never did run smooth, and Tim is fazed by unfortunate twists. He discovers that his ability can't save him from life's ups and downs.

All rom-coms come with one or two songs that make you want to see the film, and About Time is no different.

The original 17-track soundtrack - available for purchase on iTunes - boasts songs from the likes of Amy Winehouse, Sugababes and The Cure, as well as two singles: How Long Will I Love You by multi-platinum artist Ellie Goulding and The Luckiest by Ben Folds.

Universal Music Singapore is giving away five pairs of tickets to a preview of About Time at Shaw Lido at 8.45pm on Tuesday.
