Trailer: One Day

Lone Scherfig's forthcoming film (she of An Education fame) One Day, starring Anne
Hathaway and Jim Sturgess, finally has a trailer. We've been looking forward to a peek at this for some time and the story element does not disappoint: the evolution of a relationship over twenty years is fascinating and full of charm. However, we are lft wondering if it wouldn't have been better to cast a British actress in the role of Emma. Hathaway did a good job in Being Jane, but seems to falter on the accent and phrasing of a modern, middle-class British woman.

Sturgess is interesting enough, but will one bodged accent ruin a film and ultimately take away a role from a British actress who could have done a highly convincing job? Also, what's with the annoying American voiceover? This is a British film, is it not? Are you responsible for this, Random House Films?
