We got those two minute-long promos for Christian Ditter’s Love, Rosie at the end of April, but now it’s time to get a much more comprehensive sense of what the film is all about thanks to this brand new full international trailer. The movie stars Lily Collins and Sam Claflin as Rosie and Alex, longtime best friends who make plans to take a risk and leave their tiny hometown behind for Boston together. Trouble is, when unforeseen issues arise, Rosie finds herself insisting that Alex head off to the States without her.
Lionsgate is releasing the film in the UK on October 22nd, but it has yet to secure a domestic date. The film looks a bit too cheesy and schmaltzy for my taste, but there are some sweet, charming qualities to it. Hit the jump to check out that brand new Love, Rosie trailer for yourself.
Here’s the official synopsis for Love, Rosie:
Rosie Dunne (Lily Collins – The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones) and her best friend Alex (Sam Claflin – The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) have been best friends since age six. Just as they’re discovering the joys of teenage nights on the town, they’re also discovering dating disasters. As they dream of travelling the world and new adventures, they decide to take a leap of faith, both on life and on each other, and leave their small British town for Boston together to attend university. But fate has other plans, as Rosie discovers that her crazy night out with the most popular boy in school has left her pregnant. She encourages Alex to go to America without her, hopeful that she’ll catch up with him soon.
Over the next twelve years, their lives change in all kinds of ways, both expected and unexpected. There are new experiences, new relationships, and all of the other ups and downs that life brings. Their undeniable connection remains, but can their friendship survive the years and miles? And at the back of Rosie’s mind is whether they were meant to be more than just good friends all along. Misunderstandings, circumstances and sheer bad luck have kept them out of each other’s arms, but when presented with the ultimate opportunity, will they gamble everything for the chance to be together at last?
Based on the bestselling novel, LOVE, ROSIE is Cecelia Ahern’s follow-up to her box-office hit P.S. I LOVE YOU. LOVE, ROSIE is a fresh and heart-warming story about friendship, true love, and luck that shows how sometimes fate just can’t stop meddling…
