'Love, Rosie' Tries Another Rom-Com Twist


Lily Collins Sam Claflin Juliette Towhidi

While some filmmakers are happy to rely on the same old formula, others are forever seeking a new approach to a tired genre. And with its nagging predictability, there isn't a trickier genre to refresh than the romantic comedy, because everyone knows that there's only one way these movies can possibly end.

Lily Collins and Sam Claflin in 'Love, Rosie'
Are Lily Collins and Sam Claflin stuck in the friend zone in 'Love, Rosie'?

With the British rom-com 'Love, Rosie', director Christian Ditter and Juliette Towhidi, adapting Cecilia Ahern's novel, have a distinctly unusual premise even if the conclusion is rather foregone. This is the story of two lifelong friends who are clearly attracted to each other but neglect to reveal their feelings, sending their lives in very different directions.

Love, Rosie Review


OK

Deliberately unstructured, this likeable romantic comedy holds the audience's interest with its strikingly engaging cast and a slick visual style, but the plot is both contrived and underdeveloped. As the filmmakers try out some wacky slapstick, pointed political moments or a bit of darkly emotional drama, the movie's tone veers so wildly that we don't quite know where to look. And by never managing to crack the surface, the script leaves the actors with little to do but look good.

The story centres on two childhood friends: Rosie (Lily Collins) and Alex (Sam Claflin) grew up on the same street in England, developing romantic longings that they kept hidden. After a drunken teenage kiss, they rebound into the arms of other people: Rosie hooks up with the school hunk Greg (Christian Cooke), while Alex takes wannabe supermodel Bethany (Suki Waterhouse) to the big dance. Then Rosie and Alex's plan to go to university together in Boston is derailed by an unexpected pregnancy. Over the next 12 years they live on opposite sides of the Atlantic, trying to get on with their romantic lives. Alex finds a serious girlfriend (Tamsin Egerton) while Rosie re-connects with Greg and gets support from a pal (Jaime Winstone). But they never stop pining for each other.

Shot and edited in a bouncy rom-com style, it's immediately obvious where this is heading, so screenwriter Juliette Towhidi has to work overtime to throw the audience off the scent, which leaves the movie spinning in circles while we wait for the inevitable to happen. Fortunately, the characters are vivid enough to keep us entertained, as people move in and out of each others' lives providing the laughs and tears for Rosie and Alex, as well as the audience. Even if the characters are predictable and simplistic, Collins and Claflin manage to find moments of real depth along the way. Although it's difficult not to think that one proper conversation between these lifelong best pals would have saved them decades of frustration.

Sam Claflin Lily Collins Imagine Dragons Biffy Clyro

Mimi & The Mad Noise Factory are a Germany-based indie-pop band whose upbeat tune 'Get Me Back' from their new album has caught the attention of the soundtrack arrangers for forthcoming British comedy 'Love, Rosie' - and with good reason.

With a dynamic beat, quirky vocals and an infectiously catchy dance rhythm, 'Get Me Back' marks a perfect soundtrack song to a tale of long lost young love, lustful recklessness and romantic exuberance. Produced by English producer Stephen Street (The Smiths, Blur), the track follows their previous single 'Heartbreaker', and features on their newest full-length offering 'Nothing But Everything', released in March 2014 through Warner Music Group Germany.

Love, Rosie Trailer


Love can be confusing, complicating and utterly gut-wrenching as Rosie painfully discovers on her journey to adulthood. She and Alex have been best friends since childhood, with any hint of a romance being only fleeting, and quickly replaced by someone else. At school they decide to go to university together in America, but while Alex lands his dream scholarship at Harvard, Rosie finds herself left behind with an unplanned pregnancy - with the father taking off pretty quickly. Alex and Rosie are determined to stay in contact, but when she makes the mistake of telling her colleague about him, she starts to wonder if she has lost him forever as they begin planning a wedding. As it slowly dawns on Rosie that she and Alex were made for each other, it becomes unclear how their next meeting will end - especially after 12 years.
