Rosie and Alex have been best friends since they were 5, so they couldn't possibly be right for one another...or could they? When it comes to love, life and making the right choices, these two are their own worst enemies.
Life changes in an instant for young Mia Hall after a car accident puts her in a coma. During an out-of-body experience, she must decide whether to wake up and live a life far different than she had imagined. The choice is hers if she can go on.
From the age of 5 Rosie Dunne and Alex Stewart have been best friends, as they take on life they just end up getting separated time and time again. When it comes to love it's just everyone else but each other.... But when will they realise they are meant to be together?
The scene where Rosie and Alex are lying on Rosie's bed with baby Katie was not originally planned. The baby actress was asleep on the set and Lily Collins and Sam Claflin were on the bed with her, waiting while she rested. Director Christian Ditter decided to improvise and put it into the movie.

Both the Fiat Punto parked near Rosie's house and the Mercedes at the hotel have the same VX02... number plate (possibly identical) despite it being pre 2002. See more »
If I'd told him, he'd never have left and his whole life would have been ruined too. I mean, what's the point?
How noble. I'd have forced the bastard to stay.
Oh, no, no. He's not the dad. That's just some other loser.
You are turning out to be a lot more interesting than you look.

There is a very heavily-edited version of the film, which is shown on some in-flight entertainment systems (e.g. Etihad). The early part of the film is cut down so much that it is not clear who is father of Katie until roughly half-way through the film, when Greg returns to find Rosie at the hotel. See more »
Love, Rosie's leads Lily Collins and Sam Claflin add strength to this adaption that struggles to convert its story from paper to screen. They both hide their love for each other instead of biting the bullet and opening up to each other. They spend 12 years in awkward oblivion (apparently it's longer in the novel). They keeps secrets from each other, Alex's being marriage and Rosie's is pregnancy. Amongst the hardships and the inconceivable privacy are two souls who look and feel normal, never sloping into the ludicrous, always down-to-earth. There is chemistry behind the acting. They push their affections to the front, more so than most rom-com partners pull off. The story doesn't stand-out, the performances do. This is a film to fill up those rainy days and delve into a relationship if only you take the leap.
