Rated PG-13 · 108 minutes · 2011
Lone Scherfig, who directed Carey Mulligan and Peter Sarsgaard in An Education (2009), turns her attention to Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess for this lachrymose British romance, which David Nicholls adapted from his own novel. The gimmicky narrative leaps around from year to year but transpires always on the same calendar day, July 15; this device allows Nicholls to sample the 18-year friendship, often verging on love, of a high-spirited young ne'er-do-well, who does surprisingly well as host of a hip TV program, and his old college classmate, a wholesome young woman whose creative ambitions founder amid her day job as a waitress in a Tex-Mex restaurant. Nicholls makes his living writing for British TV, and his episodic structure here tends to reduce the not-quite-couple's relationship to bite-size nuggets, which makes the movie watchable but not very gripping. Patricia Clarkson does her best with an underwritten part as the young man's terminally ill mother, and British actor Ken Stott is excellent as the grieving husband she leaves behind.
