Genres: Drama, Romance

A Hollywood-set romantic tale of a guy who is content to live his life without a job yet with the love of his life, a young actress.

Film ini bercerita tentang kisah cinta Will Donner (Tom Sturridge) kepada Emma Twist (Rachel Bilson). Will dan Emma adalah teman masa kecil. Namun ketika kedua orang tua Will meninggal dunia karena kecelakaan kereta api, Will dan kakaknya, Jim, harus pindah keluar kota, tinggal bersama paman dan bibinya. Pada mulanya mereka saling berkirim surat, tapi setelah beberapa tahun mereka berhenti melakukannya.

Emma yang berkarir menjadi aktris harus pulang ke kota kelahirannya karena ayahnya sedang sakit. Will yang mendengar kabar kepulangan Emma mengikutinya pulang ke kota kelahirannya. Setelah sekian tahun, Will harus memberanikan diri untuk mengatakan isi hatinya pada Emma, tapi di lain pihak, Aaron, pacar Emma juga ingin melamar Emma.

Yang menarik dari film ini adalah, karena Will mempunyai sedikit gangguan jiwa. Mungkin karena gangguan jiwanya itulah yang membuat cintanya ke Emma tidak pernah pudar walaupun mereka tidak pernah berkomunikasi lagi. It’s kinda tough, isn’t it? Berikut ini adalah sedikit spoiler isi surat dari Will ke Emma. Kalau anda berminat menonton film ini, sebaiknya jangan dibaca. Bisa merusak kenikmatan menontonnya. 

Dear Emma,
Those two words, “Dear Emma” take me away to another time, when we used to write each other after my mom and dad died. I used to tell you about my new friends and my new life. And you used to tell me about the grand time my mom and my dad were having in heaven. Truth is nothing. What you believe to be true is everything. And the main thing that I used to believe was that I would be with you forever. Forever.
The reason it has taken me so long to write to you is that I see that I have been a fool. I’ve spent my life fooling myself. Every letter I’ve ever written to you has been a love letter. How could they have been anything else? I can see now that all of them, except this one, were bad love letters. Bad love letters beg for love back. Good love letters ask for nothing.
This, I’m pleased to announce , is my first good love letter to you, because there is nothing more for you to do. You’ve already done everything. I have enough of you in my head to last forever. So please don’t ever worry about me. I’m peachy. I really am. I have everything. If I had one wish, it would be that your life brings you a taste of the happiness you have brought to me, that you can feel what it’s like to love.
Your friend forever, Will.
