Fans of Cecelia Ahern will soon be able to see her second novel adapted for the big screen.
Love, Rosie is due for release in October. Directing is Christian Ditter and it stars Lily Collins (The Blind Side, Mirror Mirror,) as Rosie Dunne and Sam Claflin as Alex Stewart. Sam has recently starred as Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
Love, Rosie is adapted from the novel, Where Rainbows End. It is about two best friends, Alex and Rosie, who have known each other since childhood but are then separated when Alex moves to America with his family. Their friendship carries on through letters and e-mails (well, in the book anyway.)
This is the second 0f Cecelia’s novels to make its way to the big screen. Her debut novel, PS, I Love You was released in 2007 with Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler in the lead roles.
I loved PS, I Love You (aside from the location move from Ireland to New York.) I am waiting for this movie with excitement although I’d be lying if I didn’t also admit a little bit of anxiety. Where Rainbows End (along with The Gift) is my favourite of Cecelia’s novels and I am interested to see how they have adapted it. I think it’s time to dig out my copy and revisit this wonderful story.
Are you a fan of the book? Are you looking forward to the movie’s release?
