Watch: New Trailer For 'One Day' Reveals Jim Sturgess Is Kind Of A Jerk

Oh, romance. Sometimes you end up chasing your true love for decades even if he’s kind of a rakish cad and insensitive jerk which seems to be the message in this new trailer for “One Day.”

Starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess, and based on the best-selling novel by David Nicholls, the story follows Dexter (Sturgess), a spoiled rich TV host and Emma (Hathaway), a politically minded, insecure, working class Yorkshire girl, who meet on the same day, July 15th, for the 20 years after they share a one-night stand together at university. It appears that being flippant and at times just a plain asshole is the way to woo Anne Hathaway (and her many haircuts). Don’t get us wrong, we actually really want this one to work — we’re big fans of Lone Scherfig‘s previous effort “An Education” — but something about this gives us the impression that it plays far too close to standard rom-com tropes than we’d care for.

Anyway, we’ll still give it a whirl when it opens on August 19th. Check out the trailer below.
