Sam Claflin and Lily Collins play Alex and Rosie, whom we watch grow from childhood friends to awkward adults, separated by sea but bound by heart. I have ready many books and then watched many movies based on them books. Claflin and Collins are likable leads, and with a decent script and a plausible story they might have showed some chemistry. When it comes to love, life and making the right choices, these two are their own worst enemies. Unfortunately, a combination of poor editing, and rapid-onset attention deficit syndrome on my part, meant I went through the movie under the misapprehension that Alex and Rosie had already got jiggy at the start, which may have undermined some of the climactic impact.
Collins never feels or looks old enough to play the mother of a teenage girl, even one who had her kid as a teenager, but that's a minor quibble. And yet, for all its plot problems, Love, Rosie is a mostly charming affair. Aherns books and watch the movie. Through all of life's changes and upheavals, they still pop up on each other's radar, connected via e-mails, text messages and a bond that one suspects can never really be broken. Considering how predictable the story is, it's something of a minor miracle that Love, Rosie works at all. Rosie's best friend is one of those handily not-quite-as-pretty mates Jaime Winstone who says things bluntly and whose impossibly simple personal philosophy acts solely to highlight the needless complications of Rosie's own life. Somewhere there may be an interesting film to made about the way in which bleeding heart romantics skilfully maintain unconsummated tension over time, but this isn't it.
There's some real depth to the relationship between Rosie and Alex, one which transcends both friendship and romance in unexpectedly touching ways - whether it's her decision not to ruin his future by telling him about her pregnancy, or the comfort he selflessly gives her when she's struggling to stay afloat in the wake of a family tragedy. For me the book was both tragic and entertaining at times. At their high-school prom, they ask other people to the dance. Indeed, one problem with Love, Rosie is that it does take a relatively long time to get to the point, even though it's tried to simplify Ahern's novel by merging characters and removing subplots. The story itself was predictable, but the format was reasonably hip and refreshing at the time. The Soundtrack is also good. Rosie Dunne Lily Collins has been best friends with Alex Stewart Sam Claflin since they were kids.
Conspicuously boring, the film lifelessly portrays the lives of two remarkably cute yet determinedly unremarkable people who seem to be making a conscious effort to build a semi-tragic love story while leaving a trail of half-loved partners in their wake. As each navigates the complexities of life, love, and everything in between, they always find their way back to each other — but is it just friendship, or something more? Since the moment they met at age 5, Rosie and Alex have been best friends, facing the highs and lows of growing up side by side. It's all building to an inevitable kiss. But don't expect nothing special. What, perhaps, wistful 14-year-olds might imagine adult relationships are like. The film isn't particularly hip or refreshing, but boasts just enough charm and emotion to entertain - even if it isn't a film that will stay with you for long afterwards. Alex moves to Boston to begin his studies in medicine, and Rosie must stay behind due to an unexpected pregnancy.
But it's hard to connect cinematically over text, Skype, and eye-rolling narrative contrivance. It's also full of new actions,in a very fast way that you won't get bored while watching the movie. Well, the end made the movie simply perfect,while watching it, i expected Alex and Rosie, together but not that way. This is a ruthlessly formulaic movie in which I lost count of the occasions that Alex or Rosie would come to the conclusion that they love each other, only to discover in the same instant that the other was committed elsewhere. Since the age 5, Rosie and Alex have been best friends, facing the highs and lows of growing up side by side.
If you have any legal issues please contact the appropriate media file owners or host sites. I think so because it was full of nice jokes, yes i laughed on them. Genres are: Comedy, Romance, here is the storyline: Since the moment they met at age 5, Rosie and Alex have been best friends, facing the highs and lows of growing up side by side. A fleeting shared moment, one missed opportunity, and the decisions that follow send their lives in completely different directions. But somehow, across time, space and different continents, the tie that binds them cannot be undone. And yes- that was the very happy moment for me as a reader and I almost jumped when they finally got together.
Thrown into the mix is the sweet chemistry shared by Collins and Claflin, who are both very cute and very committed to making their roles work. They nearly got romantic on Rosie's 18th birthday, but Rosie was way too drunk. And I was quite right - the story progresses along the tramlines which are displayed in that trailer with one or two little sidetracks , so don't expect any earth-shattering surprises. Lily Collins and Sam Claflin have an easy chemistry, the film is a romantic drama with some gently amusing moments, the supporting cast is good, and Collins turns out to be able to do a bit of acting, too. The longer it goes on, the harder it becomes to buy into the various situations, events and misunderstandings that conspire to keep Alex and Rosie apart - whether it's his marriage or hers, the rekindling of old relationships, or plain ol' geography. A fleeting shared moment, one missed opportunity, and the decisions that follow send their lives in completely different directions. This is unreal life depicted as a series of poetic coincidences, giving the illusion of fate.
Also, the story is pretty nice and the directing is also nice. Ten years later, the book has been turned into a slight but amiable romantic comedy for the silver screen. They've always meant the world to each other, but have never become more than friends. No contrivance is left uncontrived to keep them apart. Each dull revelation is followed by empowering montage, propelled by a listless soft rock soundtrack. The rest of us are thinking: Get over it. The actors were brilliant, like they made you believe in them.
