This website is a fan site for the 2011 film of One Day adapted from the 2009 novel by David Nicholls.
One Day is a 2011 film directed by Lone Scherfig. It is set on July 15 over a period of 23 years, following the lives of two students who meet on their graduation day at the University of Edinburgh. Sometimes they are together when we return to them; other times not.
The film is based on the 2009 book One Day which was written by David Nichols who also wrote Cloud Atlas which was also adapted into a film starring Halle Berry and Tom Hanks. The two main characters of One Day are Emma Morley (Anne Hathaway) and Dexter Mayhew (Jim Sturgess). Emma is a passionate, politically involved dreamer; Dexter is a wealthy, promiscuous charmer.
The film was generally received negatively. Rotten Tomatoes offer a 36% on their Tomatometer. Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian called it “a slushy, mawkish and weirdly humourless romance”. Ian Freer of Empire Magazine noted the lack of complexities it brought over from the book but praised it as “funny, winning and entertaining”.
We believe this is a great exciting film which captures the spirit of the last two decades in Britain.
