From the director of An Education
Directed by Lone Scherfig (An Education), One Day follows the story of Emma Morley (Anne Hathaway) and Dexter Mayhew (Jim Sturgess) who, after spending one day together (their university graduation date, July 15th, 1988) begin a friendship that will last a lifetime.
Emma is a working-class girl of principle and ambition who dreams of making the world a better place. Dexter 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.
