Cliché Storyline: Love, Rosie

Cliché Storyline: Love, Rosie

Just wrapped up Love, Rosie on ABS CBN, and I couldn't resist sharing my thoughts before hitting the bed. Why is it that love stories always have to be tangled webs of missed chances and unspoken emotions? Love, Rosie unfolds the journey of two childhood friends, Rosie (Lily Collins) and Alex (Sam Claflin), who struggle to confess their love amidst the complications of adulthood and the wrong turns they take in their relationships.

Cliché Storyline: Love, Rosie

Lily Collins beautifully embodies the character of Rosie, and Sam Claflin, familiar from Me Before You and Hunger Games, unfortunately, fades into the background in this forgettable performance.

Yet, what made it a pain to watch? The incessant plot of misunderstandings, where a simple conversation could have unraveled the complications. Despite the constant communication, even across distances, the storyline fails to rise above clichés. However, credit is due for the visually pleasing close-ups of Lily Collins' expressive face, bathed in beams of light – a cinematographic delight that, unfortunately, cannot compensate for the weak narrative.

The movie's conclusion adds another layer of discomfort, as predictability takes center stage. It leaves you wishing for a twist or a moment of revelation that never arrives.

In the end, Love, Rosie imparts a quirky lesson: perhaps it's better to spill your feelings after a drink than to forget them altogether. A humorous takeaway from a film that misses the mark on delivering a compelling narrative.

Love, Rosie, a 2014 British-German romantic comedy-drama directed by Christian Ditter and based on Cecelia Ahern's novel Where Rainbows End, weaves a tale that, despite its flaws, captures the nuances of friendship and love in a complicated world.
