Love, Rosie Movie Review
Title: Love, Rosie Director: Christian Ditter Starring: Lily Collins, Sam Claflin, Suki Waterhouse, Jaime Winstone, Christian Cooke and Lily Laight Fearlessly pursuing your goals and dreams, no matter how many obstacles or conflicts stand in your way, is a praiseworthy stance not many people always have the courage to follow. But the two lead characters in director Christian Ditter’s new romantic comedy, ‘Love, Rosie,’ entrancingly proves that despite the continuous struggles people face in their personal and professional lives, their faith and persistence will lead them to their desires. The movie, which is based on Cecelia Ahearn’s acclaimed book, ‘Where Rainbows End,’ and penned by screenwriter Juliette Towhidi, mixes its [ Read More ]

Review: Romantic Comedy 'Love, Rosie' Starring Lily Collins And Sam Claflin

"I know boy/girl friendships can be quite complicated sometimes," Alex (Sam Claflin) tells his bestie Rosie (Lily Collins) in "Love, Rosie." And while the film positions itself as a romantic comedy that will explore the knotty emotions that can arise when acquaintanceship turns to attraction, it actually doesn't. Instead, the movie, based on the book "Where Rainbows End" by Cecelia Ahearn (a wise choice on the behalf of the filmmakers to change the title), is the kind of tale about what happens when two people can't just say what they're feeling, and passive aggressively pursue other relationships, even though they really like each other. Yes, boy/girl relationships can be complicated, but sometimes, as these characters learn to the point of tedium, only as complicated as you make them out to be. Told through a not particularly well-conceived flashback device with intermittent voiceover narration, the movie starts twelve years ago,

Film Review: 'Love, Rosie'

  • CineVue
★★☆☆☆Etching another notch on the bedpost of the already crowded will they/won't they? vein of romantic comedy, Love, Rosie (2014) boasts a fresh-faced cast whose star power will inevitably be bolstered by appearing in this heinious exercise in ignoble triviality. Directed by Christian Ditter and adapted from Cecelia Ahern's 2004 novel Where Rainbows End, Love, Rosie is ostensibly the iPhone generation's When Harry Met Sally (1989) - a saccharin-drenched drama that rarely merits the chemistry its central cast ably displays. The film sees Lily Collins plays the titular Rosie opposite Sam Claflin's Alex, two best friends who've grown up together side by side.

Love, Rosie Review

Director: Christian Ditter

Starring: Lily Collins, Sam Claflin, Christian Cooke, Tamsin Egerton, Suki Waterhouse, Jaime Winstone

Certificate: 15

Running time: 102 minutes

Synopsis: Rosie (Collins) and Alex (Claflin) have been best friends since they were 5, so they couldn’t possibly be right for one another…or could they? When it comes to love, life and making the right choices, these two are their own worst enemies.

Adapted from the Cecelia Ahern novel ‘Where Rainbows End’, Love, Rosie is a decade-spanning romantic comedy about friendship, true love and bad timing. For those about to give up there, although it’s admittedly a concept with about as much originality as most boy-meets-girl scenarios, Love, Rosie has several key elements working in its’ favour allowing it to flourish.

The first of these is the screenplay, courtesy of Juliette Towhidi, whose other big screen credit is as co-writer of 2003’s tale of golden oldies Calendar Girls.

Will they? Won't they? Can men and women ever just be friends? Are they going to make it to the airport on time? Just about every romantic comedy cliché gets ticked off in Love, Rosie, a new British film based on Cecelia Ahern's novel Where Rainbows End. The destination may never be in doubt, but thanks to likeable performances from stars Lily Collins and Sam Claflin this predictable film has a heart and soul that keeps it watchable for the duration.

The two up-and-coming leads play Alex and Rosie, school pals whose tight bond is more brother/sister than boyfriend/girlfriend. A kiss between them on Rosie's birthday is forgotten thanks to the effects of alcohol, and the duo carry on as normal, making plans to

When Alex met Rosie: Watch the Final Trailer for Love, Rosie with Lily Collins & Sam Claflin

When two very good looking people are on screen together there emerges within us an urgent desire to see them get together. It’s what 90% of advertising is based on, and in the realm of the movie house we are in no danger of a rom-com shortage.

Lily Collins and Sam Claflin have made decent names for themselves over the last couple of years with the story of Snow White being the element which linked them before Christian Ditter picked up Cecelia Ahern’s Where Rainbows End and so beget Love, Rosie.

This new trailer runs the gamut of romantic cliches in order to hook us into the life and love of these two lifelong friends as they grow up and find themselves unexpectedly frisky. We also get our first glimpse of Suki Waterhouse and Jaime Winstone in this new look. Will it have anything new to say? Did Harry
