Based on the novel of the same name by David Nicholls, One Day tells the story of a 20-year “love chase” between Dexter (Jim Sturgess) and Emma (Anne Hathaway). It all started on that fateful night in 1988, when the two had just graduated from the University of Edinburgh. Back at Emma’s apartment, instead of having a “one-night stand” and becoming two strangers the next morning, they lie in bed and talk like two friends.

After that, they turned to two different paths and experienced enough ups and downs in their careers and love. The youthful dreams and brief romantic moments are described in One Day, making the work more or less create a feeling of regret (tiếc nuối) in the hearts of the audience. Regretted (tiếc nuối) because Dexter and Emma seem to be born for each other, but they can’t be together, and it’s only when their feet are tired that they realize it. This is a movie in which many people have seen their reflection and missed opportunities in love…
