I’ve watched this film (along with Dear John) over my vacation in the province and surprisingly, I like ‘em both. It’s weird because they both have the 9/11 terror attacks as one of the defining scenes in the film – the end of Remember Me and in the middle of Dear John.
Both have this nonchalant vibes which make you empathize with them. It’s like both male leads are in so much pain that you’d actually feel it yourself. (Reviews were posted simultaneously)
Robert Pattinson played a rebellious young man in New York who has a not so good relationship with his lawyer Dad. His big brother Michael committed suicide when he was 22 and Tyler (Pattinson) was deeply affected by the tragedy as he continues to write to Michael whenever he can in their favorite café. And then he met Ally to whom he falls in love. It was the twist of fate that led them to heal both of their wounded soul –Ally’s Mom was murdered in the subway when she was 9. They both found solace from each other and just when everything seemed to fall into places, fate would intervene in the most tragic way.It was actually a poignant film about forgiveness, falling in love and “living.” I love how Robert Pattinson and Emilie De Ravin complimented each other on the screen. It’s not going to make you cry buckets but it would make you realize that there are things more important in life than any material things could offer.
