It's not too often I do movie reviews. Okay, not even not often, but never! That means the movie had to be super incredible for me to want to do a review on it; and One Day is just that.
As soon as I saw the trailer for One Day in the movie theater I got chills down my spine. I was practically crying just seeing the preview! I remember whispering to Matt, "I'm going to see that no matter what!" I never did get a chance to see the movie in the theater, but when Matt and I went to blockbuster last night to look for a movie to watch: I spotted it. I held that movie with a death grip until we walked out of Blockbuster and it was safely in my hands.
I waited until this afternoon when no one was in the house to watch the movie. I pulled up the couch to my computer and snuggled underneath my favorite blanket for and hour and forty minutes purely incredulous. This movie blew me out of the water.
One Day follows the same day every year, July 15th, of a pair of strangers named Emma and Dexter after they graduate from college. Throughout the years, the two blossom into a friendship, which blossoms into even deeper feelings... The two go through their lives and all of the bumps life throws at them, but always with each other at their side. To say it's an absolutely heart breaking and captivating movie is such an understatement. You all know my obsession with The Notebook...well, I might have a new favorite here. *gasp!*
I pretty much sat on my couch in utter and complete happiness for an hour and forty minutes bawling my eyes out with dried mascara on my cheeks. Yeah, it was that good.
Not only is the movie fantastic, but the clothing is phenomenal. I mean, I liked Anne Hathaway before this movie, but her wardrobe and her acting is absolutely superb in this movie. She reminds me so much of a young Audrey Hepburn. Sigh... after this movie I need to be Anne Hathaway.
asking you right now. No, telling you (and I don't command you all to do things often) GO WATCH THIS MOVIE. If not for the sake of watching a beautiful romance story, but at least for the sake of seeing pretty clothes. I mean, romance and pretty clothes...what girl doesn't like that? ❤
With much love, Lauren.
