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

Trivia

Anne Hathaway was clandestinely given the script, as director Lone Scherfig was not looking at any American actresses for the part of Emma. Hathaway flew to London for a meeting with Scherfig, which she described as "the worst meeting of my life. I was just inarticulate." However, on leaving Lone, she handed her a list of songs that she felt represented how she would interpret the character. It was this list that landed her the part. See more »

Goofs

The dress code for graduation at Edinburgh is a dark suit or highland dress with white tie for men, dark suit or dress for women. When they are on their way back to Emma's flat they all have random clothes on under their gowns. See more »

User Reviews

 
Romantic and moving drama.
6 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

One Day is a mixture of romance/drama in the right measure, which shows a couple of friends who had their lives marked by day July 15.

All the drama takes place in just one day of the year, and every year their life and their personality changes, leaving them increasingly distant. And each year that these differences make the inevitable distance, their love becomes more evident. Beautiful, charming, touching and romantic, with an end a little obvious, but still beautiful. Excellent performances, photography, script and soundtrack. Anne and Jim made a great couple.

I recommend for anyone who loves a well told drama.
