“Adapted from the internationally praised bestselling novel, One Day charts an extraordinary relationship. Emma (Academy Award nominee Anne Hathaway) and Dexter (Jim Sturgess) meet on the night of their college graduation – July 15th, 1988. She is a working-class girl of principle and ambition who dreams of making the world a better place. He is a wealthy charmer who dreams that the world will be his playground.
For the next two decades, every July 15th reveals to us how “Em” and “Dex” are faring, as their friendship ebbs and flows with the passing of the years. Through laughter and romance, heartbreak and exhilaration, they experience the grandeur of life. Somewhere along their journey, these two people realize that what they are searching and hoping for has been there for them all along.”
One of the movies I’ve been anxiously waiting for ever since I heard the cast. Anne Hathaway, my girl crush, and Jim Sturgess, my man crush, starring as two lovers in this unique concept romance.
Directed by Lone Scherfig who beautifully directed Carey Mulligan in An Education, with a release date of June 8th.
Can’t wait to see if this will finally make Jim Sturgess a household name after his failure to catapult into major roles following turns in movies like Across the Universe. So far it looks like it’s going to be a good summer 😉
