Love, Rosie (2014)

Love, Rosie is here to prove That love is a long-haul, one that brings both heartache and dizzying joy.

Regan Humphrey

Love, Rosie, adapted from Cecelia Ahern’s Where Rainbows End, chronicles the thirty-year love story of Rosie Dunne (Lily Collins) and Alex Stewart (Sam Claflin), childhood friends whose romance is stunted by a high school misunderstanding and takes two pregnancies, two failed marriages, one funeral, and one heart wrenching maid-of-honor speech to get back on track.

SUMMARY
Any soundtrack that has both Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love” and Gilbert O’Sullivan’s “Alone Again Naturally” wins for its inclusion of classics of the ages. While this film offered nothing in the way of accurate racial representation, there wasn’t one deaf note in the script. The realistic portrayal of love’s catastrophic beauty, a rare project in the world of romantic comedies, is nothing short of daring.
