Is the Age of Adaline based on a book? Romance fans wonder if the story, which has so many elements familiar to those who also like Nicholas Sparks movies, is based on an actual novel. In a way, it is also reminiscent of The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, another movie in which the main character has unusual experiences with youth.

The character played by Blake Lively does not age past 29, after experiencing an auto accident. She is in a way also similar to the character Dorian Gray, an attractive man who captures his image in a painting in order to keep himself from aging.

 

 

 

So, Is the Age of Adaline based on a book? Well, like anything else in life it’s not a completely original concept. You may have a look at Oscar Wilde’s book with Dorian Gray, The Picture Of Dorian Gray.

This may have inspired people along the way and would certainly make interesting reading for anyone who likes the type of story that investigates the effects interrupted aging has on men and women in the prime of their life.

 

J. Mills Goodloe wrote the screenplay for the Age of Adaline, along with Salvador Paskowitz and neither has said they were inspired by one book in particular. J. Mills Goodloe says that the desire to write a screenplay like that of the Age of Adaline came when he first saw the movie, Amelie. His main aim was to have an interesting female protagonist.
