“After one day together – July 15th, 1988, their college graduation – Emma Morley (Anne Hathaway) and Dexter Mayhew (Jim Sturgess) 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.”
I am a sucker for romantic, tearjerker movies. I love them! I am also a big fan of Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess. I was so excited to see One Day.
I was not disappointed by this movie. I absolutely loved it! I thought it was pretty funny though. I saw this movie with a bunch of gentleman and I was in the back of the theater crying a lot by the end of the movie and they were just sitting there. It definitely must be a girl thing.
I thought that the acting in this movie was pretty good. In my opinion, I felt that Jim Sturgess did the best out of the 2 lead roles. He did pretty well at playing an arrogant and sometimes obnoxious man but by the middle of the movie, you really like the person he has become. My biggest complaint was that I had a hard time with Anne Hathaway’s British accent. Sometimes I thought it was believable and other times it was not.
This movie deserves it’s PG-13 rating. There is quite a bit of language and there is some nudity (they accidently go to a nudist beach).
I loved the movie One Day. I am now excited to check out and read the book that it was based on. The author of the book, David Nicholls, was also the screenwriter for the film. I am excited to see this movie again!
One Day gets bragging rights!
One Day is rated PG-13 for sexual content, partial nudity, language, some violence, and substance abuse. It opens today in theaters!
