Based on the bestselling novel and from the writer of PS I Love You, Love, Rosie is a heart-warming, modern and romantic comedy-of-errors.
Since the 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.
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?
What We Thought:
Love, Rosie is a delightful, charming romantic comedy that should have been seen by more people.
Starring survivors of recent young ydult movie adaptations Lily Collins (City of Bones) and Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games movies), the film is more a dramedy than a comedy. It’s not a laugh-out-loud silly comedy, but rather a moving story of romance and friendship that has some good laughs in it.
The story is simple: best friends Rosie and Alex are in love with each other, but whenever one of them is ready to tell the other, life gets in the way. We follow them over the course of a decade or so as they try to find a way to be together yet end up apart at every turn.
The film is based on a book by the writer of PS I love You, which was also turned in to an equally excellent and equally under seen film starring Hilary Swank and Harry Connick Jr. Love, Rosie is very reminiscent of that film, and that’s definitely a good thing.
I wish this film had gained more of an audience. I also wish Paramount had at least given it a proper Blu-ray release. Even on DVD only, it’s a fantastic little film that will make a great date night movie.
