What happens when a girl falls in love with a guy who takes forever to figure out she’s the one for him? One Day. This is probably now my second favorite romance captured on film, second only to The Notebook.
Sometimes a guy falls hard right away and it takes a woman forever to figure out that he’s the one for her, and sometimes the roles are reversed. This movie is just that.
Check out this featurette. The movie is absolutely beautiful and tragic all at the same time. It follows the story of two people, one day every year for 20 years.
For the guys who seem to fall in love with woman after woman, note this: if every girl is equally appealing, why not choose the one who makes you a better person, the one who knows you through and through and loves you anyway, and the one who cares enough to tell you the truth even when it hurts?
For the girls who lack confidence, watch this movie, and note that Dex could only fall in love with Em once she gained confidence. Notice how through the years, she became more self assured.
If I could give you just one gift, do you know what it would be? Confidence. That or a scented candle.
And later on fast forward many years, Emma does gain confidence, and at a wedding when asked about her relationship status, she says:
I’m not lonely, I’m alone.
Emma had to come into her own before Dex could see her as a romantic prospect.
