Movie Info

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. -- (C) Focus Features

    havent got a bad word to say about this. jim sturgess and anne hathaway are both excellent. the concept and way it's put together along with the filming are all outstanding. it's a very believable romantic drama with a hint of virtuoso comedy.

    A touching story with a beautiful score, impeccable makeup and captivating characters that really grow on us as we catch up with them once in a year for such a long period of time - although it is just a pity that in the end it reuses a typical melodramatic cliché of romances.

    A misguided adaptation that fails to be as witty, poignant and heartbreaking as its original source, resulting in a sexless, lacklustre and crushingly conventional romantic caper. This only adds evidence to a universal truth that some books are better left untouched.

    My wife and I saw this one on Valentines Day, so we were both in the right mood to see a sappy love story. I was hopeful because I've always been impressed with Anne Hathaway's acting chops. Honestly, the movie looked kind of cute so I dove in. One Day follows a couple on their life's journey on one particular date in their lives over a period of 22 years. Sometimes the couple is together, sometimes not, but it is very interesting to see their development from college graduation to full blown adulthood. There are some very interesting side stories that keep the plot going. There are some characters in the film that either shouldn't have existed or needed some additional fleshing out. Anne Hathaway is again very impressive in One Day with a sometimes mousy appearance while at other times looking stunning. Her overall performance is not as strong as in other films such as Devil Wears Prada, but frankly she just isn't asked to do as much. The rest of the cast, while mostly no names, still does a very nice job. Jim Sturgess, who plays Hathaway's love interest, does a good job but I can't help feeling like a stronger actor would have played this role a little better and strengthened the overall movie. For a sappy movie to see on Valentines Day, I really enjoyed it. The story is nice and fun throughout but I will say I hated the ending. I'll probably give it a three out of five on Netflix. If you're looking for a sappy one, I'd recommend One Day.
