Drama: Two friends, a woman and a man, meet on the same day over the course of two decades, all while contending with the various changes and problems in their lives, as well as their longstanding mutual attraction toward each other.
On the night of their university graduation, Emma (ANNE HATHAWAY) and Dex (JIM STURGESS) nearly sleep together, but then decide they should just be friends. Over the course of the next two decades, they end up meeting on the same day nearly every year and learn of the changes in their lives. That includes Dex having to deal with his parents (PATRICIA CLARKSON and KEN STOTT), all while his career changes from English teacher to flamboyant TV variety show host to small businessman. At the same time, he ends up romantically involved with various women, ranging from TV model Suki (GEORGIA KING) to the woman, Sylvie (ROMOLA GARAI), who he ends up marrying and has their baby.

Meanwhile, Emma can't find work as a poet and thus takes a thankless waitressing job at a Mexican restaurant where she meets fellow worker and aspiring stand-up comedian, Ian (RAFE SPALL), with whom she eventually becomes involved. Despite that and her later dating of musician Jean-Pierre (SEBASTIAN DUPUIS), she can't help but think about Dex and what might have happened had they become a couple sometime in their past, a sentiment shared by him toward her.

As the years pass and they grow and change as people, they must contend with their unresolved feelings toward each other.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
