Storyline

Emma and Dexter meet on the night of their university graduation. We see them every year on the anniversary of that date - July 15th. Emma is smart but success doesn't come quickly for her, whereas for Dexter, success and women come very easily. Through the years they grow apart as their lives take different directions and they meet other people. But as they grow apart from those other people and their lives start taking opposite directions again, Emma and Dexter find that they belong with each other. Written by napierslogs

A touch love drama of time that's touching due to it's lasting memory despite tragedy.
10 October 2011 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

Over the summer I saw this film sure it's typical chick flick, still as a male I admire the beauty and sexy look of Anne Hathaway who I think is a brilliant actress. Plus I think she pulled the international accent off just fine in this film and as always her look is sharp and just fine. This is a love story that spans time with memories these moments touch you staying with you forever despite when an unexpected tragedy strikes.

Set in England it involves a couple Em(Anne Hathaway) and Dexter(Jim Sturgess) and after this international couple graduates from college and meet and fall for one another on July 15, 1989. From every year on on this date it's considered an anniversary for this couple as the film shows the special moments that happened during the lives of both. As each year on the same day is highlighted you see that no matter what path their lives have taken love and memories draw them together.

Overall this is a film of memory and everlasting love sadly an unexpected tragedy occurs, but still with memories Dexter will love Em forever as long as memories are around love can last forever. Probably not a great film but worth a watch for any Anne Hathaway fan.
