    Anne Hathaway Explains How Bon Iver & Dirty Projectors Helped Her Land The Lead In 'One Day'

    The Influence Of 'Once Upon A Time In America' & More From Lone Scherfig & Jim Sturgess About The FilmThere’s the average romantic comedy with the meet cute or initial hatred between the inevitable lovers, and then there’s “One Day.” Rather than featuring a traditional love story narrative, set over days, weeks, or even months, “One Day” visits Emma (Anne Hathaway) and Dexter (Jim Sturgess) on July 15 every year, starting in the ‘80s.

One counter-example seems to be Lone Scherfig, a Danish director who had an indie hit with "An Education" in 2009, the film that made Carey Mulligan a star. She went on to direct "One Day," an adaptation of the best-selling novel with Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess, set to release this...

    AN EDUCATION

    It isn’t easy being a sleeper nowadays. There’s been so much buildup for An Education, which has traveled the film festival circuit since Sundance in January, that it’s difficult for ordinary moviegoers to feel as if they’re discovering it for themselves. I hope inflated e...
