Beware a Dashing Man

England, 1961, is in a full post-colonial hangover. Jenny (Carey Mulligan) is sixteen and full of dreams of Paris and the wider world. She gets them for a brief time by becoming the girlfriend of an older man, David (Peter Sarsgaard). David is dashing, glamorous, good looking, and rich. How he gets his money is a bit unscrupulous, but Jenny is willing to accept it as the price for the posh… (more)

The book wasn't great and the movie was worse.

I'd say that the movie was certainly not brilliant, but it was worth watching. For those of you who enjoy the old-fashioned girl meets boy romance, it's a good film. I agree that the male character played wonderfully by actor Jim Sturgess was a bit of a worldly idiot in a good portion of it, but then again...aren't there a few of them 'out there' who exhibit these same qualities in life?! I think he's quite attractive, and above average in his looks. So, I Disagree with that comment made here. eheeh! On the whole, Anne Hathaway did a tremendous job in characterizing the Emma Morley person! Not easy to maintain the Brit. dialect, but she pulled it off well enough!! I liked a lot of the locations of the film, which included Scotland, and parts of UK. Going to France is always fun, eh?! heee! I also appreciated how the nineties era was captured in song, dance and fashion. So many movies are nostalgic about the eighties, or further back and this one chose an era Not too far from the present and portrayed it well.
I liked some of the development in Both of the main two characters. I could see some of it happening in real life. I especially enjoyed seeing the maturity Emma and Dexter each make in the end! Emma is unsure of herself but ends up much more Sure in the end! And, 'Dex' sort of sees the error of his selfish ways. I think the character I liked least was the live-in, 'comedian' boyfriend of Emma's. The pianist was more her type, definitely!! Okay. Enough said. Sorry if I spoil any plot lines for someone who has not seen this. Just thought I'd say a few things that have not been said about this film.

Just wasn't liking this one so I turned it off after 20 minutes. Maybe I didn't give it enough time, but the show just didn't appeal to me. Check it out for yourself.

This concept of one special date every year for one couple was better realized in the old Alan Alda movie, "Same Time Next Year", which was an adaptation from a stage play. In "One Day" the Jim Sturgiss character was such an awful person, that it really spoiled the movie. No one could watch this and root for him, or identify with someone so self-centered. Anne Hathaway, as always, developed a wonderful ugly duckling - to - lovely swan character, and her performance would be the only reason to watch this.

An interesting idea for a film,.. but poorly realized.

In any good romance you are hoping that the two lead actors get together eventually. The male lead in this movie is acted out as so horrid a character, that I would never want to see anyone get together with him. Their was never anything likeable about him except maybe his average good looks.

Such a beautiful, heartbreaking love story. I am very satisfied with the whole movie - even the ending. Although I don't know why Emma would ever love Dex, because he's so intolerable sometimes and childish, but I guess we can never really understand love. Especially not their love, but even the people in their lives could see that they were meant to be together. And it's so so beautiful when they are. I love it.

I think I will stop looking for other peoples opinions.
Far too much rude opins spoil any social comment setting and call that social.
Social took a deep nose dive and deserves my ignoring them for their abhorrent behavior.
Rule the world kids. Lets see where you end up.
I liked the movie. It reminded me of a girl I used to know and sometimes she comes into my mind. That isn't sad it is just a part of life. Things come and go and so do people.
I waited to become a man and then found the woman to marry. 2 kids both in collage.
