Blake Lively’s new film, “The Age of Adaline,” is a far cry from her last film, 2012’s “Savages.” That one was a humdinger. In it, Lively was the only woman in a menage a trois that was making a fortune in an extensive pot-growing operation that was destined for medical usage only. Blake’s character is abducted by a Mexican drug cartel (Benecio Del Toro and Salma Hayek) that threatens to send her back to her lovers in tiny pieces if they don’t pay a ransom and promise to stay out of their business. It had blood, brutality, dope, and a lot of sex. Lively’s character in “Adaline” is so prim, I kept wanting to yell, “Loosen up” to the screen.
