I woke up this morning and decided (while still in bed) to watch this film called 'One Day.' I've been curious about it for a while and finally decided to check it out. I've always had a soft spot for romantic films. It's that one girly part of me I just can't shake. I guess it's the love story told over time that I find so intriguing.

Anyway, I finished it a few minutes ago and still have tears in my eyes. It was brilliant. Set in London, this little indie film stars two wholly talented actors, Anne Hathaway (Emma) and Jim Sturgess (Dexter). Told on the same day, July 15, over a period of twenty or so years, this love story is of the best kind- blossomed through friendship. The british accents alone make you want to fall in love.

I must warn you, Jim Sturgess plays a truly destestable character. He is selfish, arrogant, and a complete ass. (I know this story quite well myself...) Emma (Hathaway) is an aspiring writer trying to find her way through life. The only place she seems to find happiness time and time again is in her best friend, Dexter. He, on the other hand, focuses his attention on any woman he can get his hands on. Typical.

The script is witty and well-written. Hathaway's character is sharp and always on par. The characters grow and evolve as the years fly by in the story. It is shocking, exciting, and embodies what life is all about.

I recommend this film for you hopeless romantics out there. Grab a pint of Ben & Jerry's, maybe a few Kleenex's, and enjoy. I promise you won't be disappointed. Let me know what you think!

More to come...
