Movie Review: One Day

Summary: It’s 1988 and Dexter Mayhew and Emma Morley have only just met. But after only one day together, they cannot stop thinking about one another. Over twenty years, snapshots of that relationship are revealed on the same day—July 15th—of each year. Dex and Em face squabbles and fights, hopes and missed opportunities, laughter and tears. And as the true meaning of this one crucial day is revealed, they must come to grips with the nature of love and life itself.

Review: One Day is a decent movie but I have lukewarm feelings for it, just like I did the book. The bright spot in this movie is that it does follow the book fairly closely and well it has Anne Hathaway in it. Did I mention she does a British accent?! She is the perfect Emma. She encompasses the girl who comes out of her shell, slowly and develops into a confident young woman.

Jim Sturgess is great as Dex. Dex is every bit as self-absorbed as he is in the book. He's a spoiled rich kid who never found his way in life. People just enabled him in his adult life. As we take this journey with Emma and Dex, one thing is still apparent, Emma is and always will be too good for Dex.

I have to say that I'm happy I didn't see this in the theatre and it's why it's probably sat on my DVR for months.

Book to Movie Final Take: 3/5
