Overview

Adapted from author David Nicholls' critically acclaimed novel of the same name, director Lone Scherfig's One Day stars Anne Hathaway as a principled working-class girl who forges a unique bond with a wealthy jet-setter that spans two decades. July 15, 1988: Emma (Hathaway) is about to enter the real world. An idealist from humble upbringings, she dreams of making the world a better place for everyone. On the night of her graduation, Emma (Hathaway) meets Dexter (Jim Sturgess), a wealthy flirt without a care in the world. Dexter is also graduating, though unlike Emma he looks forward to a future of comfort and privilege. By checking back with Emma and Dexter every July 15th for the next 20 years, we experience their happiness, hardships, and heartache as they strive to live out their dreams, and find meaning in a world that's constantly changing.

I recently rented this movie after having read the book. I couldn't put the book down, but it was not the best for making into a film. Save yourself the disappointment and just stick to the book.

A terrific movie with a wonderful cast! Yes, I read David Nicholls book, and, yes, it does offer more of Dexter and Emma. In fact, it's a wonderful book. Loved the . . . but wait, this is about the movie, isn't it? I did not have any problems with Anna Hathaway as Emma. She was terrific. Frankly, I can't imagine anyone but Anne in that roll. Jim Sturgess was magnificent as Dexter. He begins as a swaggering young Johnny Depp type and while he sinks into the pits of life, continuing to make the wrong choices, he's growing as a human being. By the end . . . Oh, the end! The end is . . . is . . . tough and yet redeeming. All in all, this is a wonderful film!

Where to start? First I LOVED this book by David Nicholls. I liked the literary conceit of setting the action on the same day with every progressive year. You could fill in the blanks on what had happened and what would likely happen next pretty reliably.I had a very distinct vision of Emma - vaguely dumpy, bookish, a tad plump, an intellectual more concerned with content than style. And then of course the ugly duckling becomes the swan. And Dex. Dashing. Adorably bad. Jim Sturgess is perfect. But I was quizzical over the casting of Anne Hathaway. I really felt confused. She has such a strong image. At best, she is handsome. But I do not see her as soft and pretty, ever. Sorry! She's bony, angular.I think Emma needs to emerge from her unfocused blurred self and become beautiful in Dex's eyes as he gets to know her better. Somehow we need to see her insecurities wrapped up in her love for this bad boy. In the film we don't. They change her hair, take her glasses away. But we miss the slow evolution of a beautiful inner self coming to the fore.There's nothing tentative about her at all. And there is zero chemistry. I found myself watching and simply not carrying about anyone except maybe Ian, played by Rafe Spall, the lousy comic who is love with Emma. I should have cared about Dex' mother, but Patricia Clarkson always seemed like she had a little secret on her mind which didn't fit with the film. Like she wouldn't mind having a go at Jim Sturgess herself. On the other hand I did care about the big event. Which I have to admit shook me just as much as it did in the book. Even though I was waiting for it. Even though I knew it was coming, when it was coming, the sudden bluntness of it still caught me and I found myself crying. I don't know if that's Good on David Nicholl's the author, who also wrote the screenplay or Good on Lone Sherfig, the director, or both of them. That scene in any case worked. I also wasn't happy with how they aged Dex after that; he looked silly with his floppy dark hair silvered. All in all, I was very disappointed. It was a lovely, brilliant book but the film finally, was forgettable. And I do blame the casting. If you don't get that basic fundamental right, if the two leads in a love story have no chemistry, you can forget the rest of it. I suggest you do just that. Forget the film. Read the book.

The previews made it look like a movie I would really enjoy. I am pretty sure it is the worst movie I have ever seen and I am sorry I spent time watching this slow and depressing movie.
