I am so happy I finally watched this movie. I read the book a few years ago, you can read my review here. Since I read it a long time ago, the story kind of blurred in my mind. And I think it’s for the best because the movie is slightly different than the book. The story stays the same, but with minor changes. For a start, the circumstances for Alex’s departure for the US aren’t the same. To be honest, it didn’t bother me at all ! I really loved this movie. The only “negative” thing I have to say is that we kind of lost their written relationship. Now, I understand that it’s almost impossible to put it into a movie and they still managed it for the key moments, though. But I kind of missed it nonetheless.
I have nothing negative to say about the cast, they were all great ! Rosie is played by Lily Collins that is an actress that I admire. She gives life perfectly to a confused Rosie, because life has been harsh on her.
Alex is played by the marvelous Sam Claflin. I really love that actor. Unforgettable Will Traynor in the fabulous Me Before You, I totally forgot Will and just saw Alex ! The rest of the cast was great too !
Katie is played by Lily laight and she is sooo adorable !
Overall I really enjoyed this movie !
