Love, Rosie

Have you heard about Love, Rosie? I saw the trailer in a Buzzfeed list but didn't hear anything about it until it showed up on iTunes a couple weeks later.

I was thisclose to starting it all over again when it finished. It was great. A good will-they-won't-they love story about Alex (Sam Clafin) and Rosie (Lily Collins). The movie begins during their last year of high school and follows their friendship (and other relationships) over a twelve-year span. 

Between dreamy accents and to-die-for dimples, I let myself get caught up in it all and not think too hard about it. (Best way to watch it, by the way.) Covering more than a decade means it tries to pack a lot into a short time but the chemistry (and dimples) make it worth the rental fee. Best watched in sweatpants, with a big bowl of popcorn and a makeup-less face. And maybe a couple girlfriends too.

  1. Thanks for the suggestion! I've added to my "to watch" list. It looks right up my alley and perfect for a winter weekend afternoon. :)

  3. I LOVED it! I'm such a sucker for cute films like this. The format is such that you know they'll end up together at the very end, but even still, it was very sweet. I loved the music choices, especially "Push It" when she was giving birth, and "Fuck You" when she was getting rid of her husband's stuff. Both gave me a case of the giggles. The guy who played Alex is a total cutie, and I loved all the dimples too. They are both WAY too young looking to play the older versions of their characters, so that was a bit distracting, but otherwise I was charmed. Thanks for suggesting it! :)
