heart (s) just skipped a beat


Director Lone Scherfig’s One Day follows its two protagonists, Dexter Mayhew (Jim Sturgess) and Emma Morley (Anne Hathaway), over the course of two decades, from their time as young, idealistic students to adults dealing with the full reality of their lives. Adapted from David Nicholls’ best-selling novel of the same name, One Day, however, only shows us one day of their lives each year. They first meet as undergraduates at the University of Edinburgh in 1988, have a romantic encounter on July 15 – St. Swithin’s Day – and, although they choose friendship over romance, pledge to meet up on that same day every year. The film charts Dexter and Emma’s experiences, loves, hopes and relationships over the years as they find success and failure in equal measure – and, just maybe, each other. Like other films that look at the grand sweep of a relationship, One Day moves back and forth between the close-up and the long shot, the single day and the decades-long glance back, to fully comprehend the evolution of love. Like so many other films before it, from Ingmar Bergman’s Scenes from a Marriage to Harold Ramis’ Groundhog Day, from Rob Reiner’s When Harry Met Sally to Ang Lee’s Brokeback Mountain, One Day understands that love takes time.
