Witness the brilliance of Academy Award-winner Anne Hathaway with her romantic drama film, The Idea of You, in which she stars alongside actor Nicholas Galitzine. Written and directed by Michael Showalter, the romantic drama film is about an unconventional love story that starts at the Coachella music festival. The film centres around a 40-year-old single mother who falls in love with a 24-year-old boyband star.

From power-packed performances to nuanced storytelling by Micheal Showalter, here are the five reasons why you should watch The Idea of You only on Amazon Prime Video on May 2.

Why you should not miss The Idea of You on Prime Video

Unconventional love story

The Idea of You is an unconventional love story between Solene (Anne) and Hayes (Nicholas) who have a major age gap between them. After they meet at Coachella, their love blossoms effortlessly due to shared interests and their mutual fun-loving attitude. As the guy is mostly depicted as older than the woman on screen, The Idea of You brings an unconventional perspective that is not commonly portrayed in our films.

Power-packed performances

The film stars Anne Hathaway and Nicholas Galitzine in pivotal roles with Ella Rubin, Reid Scott, Jordan Aaron Hall, and Jaiden Anthony, among others, as supporting cast. The lead duo plays their part effortlessly and seems to be truly in love with each other in the trailer video of the film. Anne Hathaway’s acting prowess is sure to keep you hooked to the screens with her nuanced portrayal of a modern woman who is not scared to pursue her heart.

A delightful rom-com

The Idea of You is a fun and contemporary take on the age-old rom-com where a boy meets a girl, and they fall in love. This unusual love story promises to be an escape from your reality and sends you on a wonderful romantic ride which is marked with sizzling chemistry and heartwarming moments that promise to leave you teary-eyed.

Nuanced storytelling

Contrary to the Bollywood style of filmmaking where over-the-top sequences and social messaging are at the forefront, the Michael Showalter written and directed film draws a much more realistic portrayal of the modern times where romantic relationships are not marked by class, age or gender.

Commentary on contemporary culture

With a narrative showcasing the chemistry between Solene and Hayes, the film makes a stark commentary on the contemporary time that is obsessed with celebrity culture and want to know every minute detail about them. The scrutiny and the media frenzy create chaos in Solene’s mind, testing her love for Hayes. The contention between Solene’s mind about her feelings for Hayes and the frenzy around him adds drama to the film.
