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. One awkward turn at 18, one missed opportunity… and life sends them hurling in different directions. But somehow, across time, space and different continents, the tie that binds them cannot be undone. Will they find their way back to one another, or will it be too late? Based on Cecelia Ahern’s bestselling novel “Where Rainbows End”, LOVE, ROSIE is a modern comedy-of-errors tale posing the ultimate question: Do we really only get one shot at true love?


  • The shift from best friends to bedfellows has greased the engine of many a romantic comedy from When Harry Met Sally… to Friends With Benefits to the recent What If. Now comes Love, Rosie, an adaptation of Cecelia Ahern’s bestselling romance Where Rainbows End, that tracks the trials and tribulations of destined couple Rosie and Alex.

    Lifelong friends and neighbours, Rosie and Alex (Lily Collins and Sam Claflin) share a kiss on her 18th birthday, which she’s too drunk to remember the next day. He believes she just wants to forget it ever happened, so he listens to her counsel when she encourages him to take popular girl Bethany (model Suki Waterhouse, who makes a good go of it) to the dance whilst Rosie partners up with star jock Greg (Christian Cooke). After a cringe-inducing episode with a runaway condom that has Alex bailing her out once more, the two friends plan to move to Boston where he’s applied for a scholarship to Harvard to study medicine.
