Think back to your most recent graduation — was it college? was it high school? Remember your best friend? Don't you wish you could just have "One Day" more with them? Okay, pardon the cheesy expression, but this movie — and giveaway — is about sharing one day with your best friend, on the same date, for the rest of your life.
The synopsis of the film, according to Focus Features is a plot like we've seen before – guy meets girl, girl resists, guy falls for hundreds of others only to discover that girl a was "the one" all along. Or in their words: Twenty years…two people. Directed by Lone Scherfig (director of “An Education,” Academy Award-nominated for Best Picture), the motion picture “One Day” is adapted for the screen by David Nicholls from his beloved bestselling novel One Day. After one day together – July 15th, 1988, their college graduation – Emma Morley (Academy Award nominee Anne Hathaway) and Dexter Mayhew (Jim Sturgess of “Across the Universe”) begin a friendship that will last a lifetime. She is a working-class girl of principle and ambition who dreams of making the world a better place. He is a wealthy charmer who dreams that the world will be his playground. For the next two decades, key moments of their relationship are experienced over several July 15ths in their lives. Together and apart, we see Dex and Em through their friendship and fights, hopes and missed opportunities, laughter and tears. Somewhere along their journey, these two people realize that what they are searching and hoping for has been there for them all along. As the true meaning of that one day back in 1988 is revealed, they come to terms with the nature of love and life itself.
