Love, Rosie is a heartwarming romantic comedy movie released in 2014 that tells the story of two best friends, Rosie Dunne (Lily Collins) and Alex Stewart (Sam Claflin), who have known each other since they were kids. Both grew up together in Dublin, Ireland, and had a unique bond that makes them inseparable, until one fateful night changes everything.

Rosie is a witty, quirky, and ambitious girl who dreams of becoming a successful hotel manager in Boston one day. In contrast, Alex is the charming, witty, and handsome guy who always had an interest in Rosie but never confessed his feelings until it was too late. Alex, on the other hand, is more preoccupied with his academic and family life.

The story begins with Rosie and Alex celebrating their graduation together. They both got accepted to different universities, but their plans to go their separate ways are postponed when Rosie gets pregnant after a night of promiscuity. Rosie decided to give up her dream of going to Boston and decides to stay in Dublin to take care of her baby. Alex ultimately decides to stay in England to fulfill his academic aspirations.

As the years go by, Rosie and Alex keep in touch via letters and phone calls. Despite their best efforts, life always seemed to get in their way, preventing them from being together. Their relationship gets put to the test when Alex begins dating a coworker, and Rosie begins dating an older, affluent businessman. Both come to realize they might have made a mistake by not pursuing each other romantically years before.

Although the film tackles some serious themes such as teenage pregnancy, drug addiction, relationships, and death, it does so with a light touch, balanced with humor and sincerity. The film offers a sweet, funny, and gut-wrenching coming-of-age love story that appeals to everyone.

Lily Collins and Sam Claflin both deliver endearing performances that undoubtedly carry the film. Their undeniable chemistry and the natural playfulness of their characters make them the perfect match, leaving the viewer feeling as if they are a part of the journey. The supporting cast also does an excellent job of lending to the plot's depth and humor.

Directed by Christian Ditter, Love, Rosie stays true to Cecelia Ahern's bestselling novel "Where Rainbows End," which it adapts. It's a film that tackles relatable issues and portrays characters that are enduring, charming, and easy to root for. Even though the plot is predictable, it's still an enjoyable film to watch, and it leaves you with a warm feeling in your heart.

In conclusion, Love, Rosie is a heartwarming film that shows that love is inevitable, no matter how much we try to avoid it. The film has a relatable storyline, excellent performances, and packs an emotional punch throughout the film. Love, Rosie is a charming, cultivated, and touching romantic comedy that's deserving of being labeled a classic.
