Typically giving her role her all, Anne Hathaway ultimately is foiled by the effort to maintain a British accent in this adaptation of David Nicholls' novel about two college acquaintances whose lives are traced over 20 years on the same day ... July 15, the date of their graduation.
Jim Sturgess ("21") plays the other former student, whose future initially appears to be full of promise. As the story bears out, things don't always unfold as expected. The supporting cast includes Patricia Clarkson and Tom Arnold. DVD extras: three "making-of" documentaries; audio commentary by director Lone Scherfig; deleted scenes. ** (PG-13: AS, N, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
