Remember Me: A Romance that’ll Wreck Your Soul

Be ready to have the rug pulled out from under you: This hauntingly beautiful romantic drama single-handedly absolves Robert Pattinson from all the cringe of the Twilight saga. Remember Me also stars Emily de Ravin, Pierce Brosnan and Lena Olin.

What’s it about? After Tyler Hawkins elder brother commits suicide, the artistic young man (Robert Pattinson) rebels against his tycoon-father (Pierce Brosnan). When Tyler and his college roommate are wrongly jailed by an NYPD police officer (Chris Cooper),  Tyler asks the cop’s daughter Ally on a date to spite him. However, the two of them soon start bonding over her own home rebellion…

What’s it really about? The effect our lives have on those we meet along the way

Pick if:

  • You’re looking for a movie to watch on your own, with a date, or with your friends
  • You’re feeling romantic and are up for a heartwarming romance between two young people who’ve been broken by tragic events
  • You’re invested in stories about families trying to recover from tragedy and the complicated relationships that ensue between parents and their offspring as a result
  • You’re willing to give Robert Pattinson one more chance after Twilight
  • You find the James Dean type intriguing, meaning brooding, mysterious, artistic kind of guys
  • You’ve stocked up on tissues

Most memorable quote: “Gandhi said: ‘whatever you do in life will be insignificant, but it’s very important that you do it.’ Because nobody else will. Like when someone comes into your life and half of you says you’re nowhere near ready, but the other half says: make her yours forever.” – Tyler

Most memorable scene: Ally has her dessert first

Where can I watch? Remember me is included in the Netflix (Germany, Scandinavia, US, Brazil, Austria, Netherlands, Australia) Amazon and Maxdome flatrate. It can also be puchased on iTunes.

Remember me (2010): Directed by Allen Coulter; running-time 113mins; starring Robert Pattinson – in a desperate bid to redeem himself for his part in the Twilight Saga, LOST‘s Emilie de Ravin – in her only big screen role: after that she settled for Once Upon A Time, Pierce Brosnan (Mamma Mia, James Bond: Golden Eye), Chris Cooper (American Beauty), Lena Olin (Chocolat, Alias).
