Is “Love, Rosie” the sort of British answer to “Knocked Up“? Maybe on the surface. Both films involve pregnancies, relationships and the dramedic (yes, we just made up that word) repercussions that follow. If Judd Apatow‘s film ended after the birth, Christian Ditter‘s tale shows what happens long, long after.
Based on the book “Where Rainbows End” by Celia Ahern (good thing they changed that title), and starring Lily Collins and Sam Claflin, the story follows childhood pals Rosie and Alex, who find accidents and missteps getting in the way of their romance. But the flame between the too carries on as they grow up, leading to tears, hugs and lots of stuff you’ll probably see coming a million miles away, but that will make your Mom and Aunt cry anyway. Also, there will be texting. Lots and lots of texting.
“Love, Rosie” opens in the U.K. this fall, but there’s no U.S. date just yet. [Vlicious]
