In the novel-turned-movie One Day, two young post-grads, Emma and Dexter, meet and fall in love over the course of... one day. After that day, they cannot stop thinking about one another and find themselves reuniting (either while separated or as a couple) on the same day of each year. Throughout the course of 20 years, they face trials and tribulations, and find deeper meaning in the phrase "the one that got away." 'One Day' Review: Should You Wait To "Grow Into" Love?
