miscast misdirected and mis edited.
this had some great aspects to it but ultimately failed to deliver. Firstly the good. Brilliant locations, beautiful cinematography, Anne Hathaway delivers a good performance,
The bad. The editor and the director failed to establish a believable connection between the two lead actors as to why they would form a lasting bond that would carry them over 20 years. We’re given a hint of this at the end but that doesn’t help or fix the rest of the movie, so that’s the bad editing aspect of this. if this scene had been at the front it might have helped sell the movie. That that scene didn’t really deliver the goods needed to make it believable is the directors mistake along with many of the other scenes that tips the scale against the characters. Too many scenes of Dexter being a jerk and not enough of him being in anyway lovable or charming, even though there was much amusement to be had in the jerk Dexter scenes they blew out the balance of his character and it wasn’t till the end that we got to see him as anything less than a jerk, but by then it was too late and it didn’t really do anything to alter the confusion of why Emma would have cared. I also didn’t buy Jim Sturgess performance, although a lot of people think differently, he came across as a caricature rather than a character. People have criticised Anne Hathaway’s accent and there’s probably some weight to that but I personally didn’t find it annoying once I thought what’s going on with her accent as it fluctuated all over the show. That’s a continuity and a direction flaw as much as it is her performance. After a few mins I put it in the multi-sourced accent file as many people have blended accents. Outside of that Anne’s delivering some really good depth in her work so much so that we may one day forgive her for the princess diaries.
A pleasant movie if not quite working as well as it had potential to
The book was a wonderful read. One Day was a movie I was looking forward to, and while it was disappointing I found it very pleasant.
What made the book so good and such a joy to read was not just the emotional impact, modern angst and characterisation but also how nostalgic it made me. The emotional impact and angst is here in the movie, what wasn’t quite there was the nostalgia-evidence of it but could’ve been more- and characterisation which does feel choppy especially with Patricia Clarkson’s Alison though Dexter is well realised.
That said, I loved the beautiful look of the film, the soundtrack which gave the film its sense of nostalgia and the witty banter between Sturgess and Hathaway. The romantic elements are touching though the comedic elements don’t always work coming across as a tad contrived. The direction is decent, the telling of the story is well paced(if somewhat glacial) and faithful and the script has some nice touches but also some weak ones. Of the support performances I thought Rafe Spall, Romola Garai and Ken Stott were the most effective and Clarkson was good if deserving of more to do. The picture belongs to Jim Sturgess, while staying true to his bad boy character of Dexter he also manages to be sympathetic.
My feelings on Anne Hathaway were mixed. I loved her radiance and her chemistry with Sturgess, but her accent was inconsistent and felt forced and unnatural whenever she tried it. The shock ending also felt more bewildering than anything else, not the actual tragedy itself but rather the flashbacks that succeeded that I wasn’t sure was really needed.
In conclusion, pleasant if not entirely successful. 6.5/10 Bethany Cox
