as i've promised, i'm going to post a review on the movie after reading the book. :) i won't talk about plots anymore because i covered that in the book review. i will only share my thoughts on the movie.
in the movie adaptation of One Day, the two main characters are played by Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess. i'm very familiar with Anne Hathaway since she's in The Princess Diaries movie. since then, i saw a lot of her movies and see her as a very professional and dedicated actress. while i've never heard of Jim Sturgess before :1 but i watched the movie anyway, since i've already read the book :D
for me, the movie portrays the plot of the story perfectly. i watched the movie right after i finished the book, so the plot is still very fresh in my memory. even though some parts are changed slightly, but the scenes still delivers the original message that was intended: Emma and Dexter are best friends who are always longing for each other for years.
another thing that amazed me from this movie is how Emma (Anne Hathaway) and Dexter (Jim Sturgess) really looked like they grew up in the movie. the face, their hairstyles, clothing; everything portrays well the era of 80s and 90s. Jim Sturgess and Anne Hathaway both looked very young in 1988 (is this the power of make up?). both of them look best in 1999-2000; very handsome and pretty (which is the 4th picture below) ;)
below are series of pictures i found from google, showing how they both changed from 1988-2011.
as a movie adaptation, this movie did very well :) i'm saying this from the point of view of someone who reads the book first then watch the movie :D if any of you who only watched the movie have different opinions, please kindly share ;)
that's it for the movie review ;)
