“Home isn’t a place, it’s a feeling…” Rosie Dunne (Love, Rosie)
From the moment I first saw the trailer for Love, Rosie, I knew I wanted to see it. The movie is an adaptation of the book, Where Rainbows End, by Cecelia Ahern and is one of the first books I read since my Irish pen pal ‘introduced’ me to the author.
I had really enjoyed P.S. I Love You, despite its tragic beginning, so I was pretty excited to see the chemistry between the main characters Rosie Dunn (Lily Collins) and Alex Stewart (Sam Claflin) two young actors who are currently taking over the big screen.
The story is about two friends who have known each other since they were in primary school. From the beginning it’s clear that Alex has feelings for Rosie and she for him, but something always seems to get in the way.
Their lives change forever when Alex goes off to Boston to Medical school, and Rosie starts an unplanned journey of her own. Through tragedy and lost loves, Alex and Rosie always try to find their way back to each other… but I found myself wondering more than once if they will actually be on the same page at the same time.
