From acclaimed filmmaker Lone Scherfig (2009’s “An Education”) and based on the best-selling novel by David Nicholls, “One Day” is an epic romance with a mighty cast. After spending the night together in college, Dex (Jim Sturgess, “21”) and Emm (Academy award nominee Anne Hathaway, “The Devil Wears Prada”) are revisited on the same day every subsequent year, their unspoken connection and love lives the key focus of this sprawling and engrossing story. The tasteful marketing campaign and other talents attached (Patricia Clarkson of “Easy A” and Jodie Whittaker of “Attack the Block”) are very encouraging, suggesting that this hotly anticipated tale might live up to the high fan expectations when it sees release this August 26th.
A subtle blend of romance, drama and comedy ensures that “One Day will satisfy moviegoers on all fronts, providing a romantic story of more complexity and depth than most modern Hollywood product. The presence of a mature and incredibly skilled director like Scherfig inspires maximum confidence, and assures fans of the source that their favourite book is in safe hands. It’s a swooning and operatic saga in the vein of the great films of old, and will hopefully provide a new generation of hopeless romantics with another cinematic offering to treasure for years to come. “One Day” will be released in the UK on the 26th August 2011.
