The story is ambitious in this romantic drama but never really goes above what is expected from the man who directed "An Education". The character chemistry is essentially non-existant aside from Hathaway and her counterpart. The characters go through a lot in the twenty years that they know each other but it is what happens at the end that left me not knowing what to think about the movie overall. It was promising at the beginning but ultimately left me feeling like I was just slapped in the face. No pun intended. Just a whacky film that you have to watch for yourself to understand the uncertainty I'm facing right now. Even though I am glad I watched it, I wouldn't watch it again. 2 out of 4 stars.
