Before you even think about going to your local theater on July 8 to see “One Day,” hit up the library first and read the book.
David Nicholl’s book (of the same name) follows two people, Emma and Dex, over a span of 20 years. Each chapter catches up with the characters every year on the date they met, July 15. If the film is anything like the book, I’ll be blubbering like a baby in public. Yikes.
“One Day” is directed by Lone Scherfig (“An Education”), and Nicholls wrote the screenplay, so I have very high hopes for the film. Anne Hathaway stars as Emma Morley alongside Jim Sturgess as Dexter Mayhew.
Honestly, Hathaway is not who I pictured as Emma in the slightest, but I’m willing to give her a shot.
