Somewhere in Time

Year: 1980
Studio: Universal Pictures
Director: Jeannot Szwarc
Cast: Christopher Reeve, Jane Seymour, Christopher Plummer, William H Macy
Melancholy and exuberantly romantic drama. A man in the present day (Reeve) is given a watch by an old woman. He discovers her identity, falls in love with a picture of her from the early 1900's and learns that he can travel through time just by thinking about it!

He returns to the early 20th century to find her, they fall in love and it's by a cruel twist of fate (a coin in his pocket from his own time) that he's rudely dragged back to his own time. He refuses to eat or sleep and promptly dies of heartbreak. Ignores most of the paradoxical nature of time travel that most science fiction dealing with the device tries to explain and just tries to tug the heart strings.
