Trailer: ONE DAY

Last summer, I reviewed David Nicholls’s book, One Day, which follows the relationship between friends Dexter and Emma by dropping in on them on the same date every year, from the time they meet on their college graduation day to twenty years later.

The trailer for the movie, starring Jim Sturgess and Anne Hathaway, was released this week. I think the lead actors are good choices for Dex and Em, and a movie can only be enhanced by having Patricia Clarkson in it.

One Day fans, what do you think? If you haven’t read the book, does this make you want to?

    Haven’t read the book but after seeing the movie trailer I want to. With their relationship covering 20 years it’s hard to imagine Anne Hathaway being made to look older. She has such great features and will age gracefully. Looking forward to the book and movie.

    I remember that book fondly. The ending ripped my heart out and I’m not much for the sentimental. The trailer looks epic and I really like both those actors (or all 3 as you point out). I look forward to seeing it.

    Had seen a lot about this one, but it just didn’t seem like something for me. Then Ian Rankin mentioned at his book signing that it was one of the best books he’s read in a while, so … I’m in. Movie looks awesome.

    Donna—Do read the book first and let me know what you think.

    EIREGO—Yeah, it has some wrenching moments. We’ll compare notes after the movie comes out.

    jenn—Oh, my word isn’t good enough but if Ian Rankin endorses it, THEN you’ll read it? Huh.
