Alex Stewart and Rosie Dunne are best friends and have been inseparable since childhood. They always understood each other and she was the only one that ever got Alex's weird dreams. They laugh, they hang out, they confide in each other and tell each other their most intimate thoughts and secrets.
They make plans to further their studies in Boston when they graduate. It's obvious that they have crossed some dangerous territory that could change their friendship to something else. However they don't get a chance to explore this when a night at the end of year dance changes everything. Their deep friendship never wanes over the years but there seems to be a lot of obstacles in the way that keep them apart over twelve years.
Based on the 2004 novel 'Where Rainbows End' by Irish author Cecelia Ahern who also wrote 'P.S. I Love You' (I must admit I did love that movie with Gerard Butler and Hilary Swank), this is German Director Christian Ditter's first foray into an English language speaking comedy.
Lily Collins and San Clafin who play Rosie and Alex have the look of longing and expressions of heartache for near miss opportunities down pat! If it were not for the sexual chemistry between them and our sadistic nature to travel the bumpy road of near misses with them just to feel the empathetic ache of longing, there's not much else to this movie. There are injections of comedy and some ridiculous situations that will keep you chuffing along, and if all you're looking for is a little entertainment than this is the movie for you. It is more than bearable and you may well be one that enjoys a story of unrequited love. I give it a 6.5 out of 10.
