New images have been released by Focus Features [via indieWire] for two of their 2011 releases. The first is Lone Scherfig‘s follow up to the successful An Education. One Day is a romantic comedy starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess. Based on the novel by David Nicholls, the story revolves around Dexter (Sturgess) and Emma (Hathaway) who meet up, 20 years after they had a one-night stand. Rafe Spall and Romola Garai (Atonement) co-star. Here’s the full synopsis:
One Day charts an extraordinary relationship. Emma (Hathaway) and Dexter (Sturgess) meet on the night of their college graduation – July 15th, 1988. She is a working-class girl of principle and ambition who dreams of making the world a better place. He is a wealthy charmer who dreams that the world will be his playground.
For the next two decades, every July 15th reveals to us how “Em” and “Dex” are faring, as their friendship ebbs and flows with the passing of the years. Through laughter and romance, heartbreak and exhilaration, they experience the grandeur of life. Somewhere along their journey, these two people realize that what they are searching and hoping for has been there for them all along.
The pictures show Anne Hathway sporting a pixie crop and Sturgess looking decidedly smug. One Day is set to open in cinemas in Autumn 2011.
The second image comes from Cary Fukunaga‘s (Sin Nombre) new movie, the Charlotte Brontë classic, Jane Eyre, about a governess who becomes entangled in a romance with her mysterious employer. The picture shows the two leads, Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender getting up close and personal. Jane Eyre sports a large ensemble cast including Jamie Bell, Judi Dench, Sally Hawkins and Imogen Poots.
Fukanaga is teaming up with cinematographer Adriano Goldman, and working from a script penned by Tamara Drewe writer, Moira Buffini. The full synopsis is below.
In the story, Jane Eyre flees Thornfield House, the vast and isolated estate where she works as a governess for Adele, a child under the custody of Thornfield’s brooding master, Edward Rochester. As Jane looks back upon the tumultuous events that led to her escape, from her childhood as an orphan to her education at the cruel charity school to which she was consigned, she realizes that she must return to Thornfield – to secure her own future, and to come to terms with the terrible secret Rochester had hoped to hide from her forever…
Jane Eyre is set for release on March 11th, 2011.
