We’ve got our hands on the UK trailer of One Day, the upcoming romantic drama movie directed by Lone Scherfig and starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess that’s set to open in theaters on August 19, 2011:
“After one day together – July 15th, 1988, their college graduation – Emma Morley (Academy Award nominee Anne Hathaway) and Dexter Mayhew (Jim Sturgess of Across the Universe) begin a friendship that will last a lifetime. 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, key moments of their relationship are experienced over several July 15ths in their lives. Together and apart, we see Dex and Em through their friendship and fights, hopes and missed opportunities, laughter and tears. Somewhere along their journey, these two people realize that what they are searching and hoping for has been there for them all along. As the true meaning of that one day back in 1988 is revealed, they come to terms with the nature of love and life itself.”
Haven’t read the book (written by David Nicholls) the film is based on. So I don’t know if there’s a happy end to this story. I hope so though! Because there’s no denying that Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess make a lovely couple on screen: let them love each other for God’s sake!
