: A moving love story about redemption, discovery and the value of life, Remember Me is the tale of ordinary people learning to live again after suffering extraordinary loss.
Years after college student Tyler Roth's brother killed himself, Tyler still doesn't know where to put his pain. He's a good guy, but during a night out on the town, he confesses to a misdemeanour he didn't commit and gets in trouble with a heavy-handed cop. In a light-hearted game of payback, Tyler flirts with the cop's attractive daughter, Ally, not realising they share unexpected common ground.
When Ally reveals that her mother was brutally murdered, Tyler sees how deeply he has buried his own private grief. He and Ally fall in love, enabling them to take the first tentative steps out of their anguish. Their biggest obstacle is the truth: Tyler knows he has to admit to Ally why he first asked her out-and risk losing her...
Infused with humour and romance, Remember Me tells an unforgettable story about two wounded people brave enough to try again. Its emotionally stirring ending reminds us just how important it is to grab hold of what's important, to love passionately-and live loudly-every day of one's life.Verdict
: Remember Me certainly is a story of teenage discovery. The film shows two delicately distressed young lovers who are using each other to learn to live after suffering extraordinary loss with two lengthy teenage sex scenes.
Tyler Roth (Robert Pattinson) is a product of life experience; he is devoted to his sister, who audiences immediately feel for, yet he is a dirty, chain-smoking, binge-drinking rich kid who deals with his trauma using anger. Yet, Tyler's character softens as he meets, girlfriend, Ally (Emilie de Ravin); the couple not only share pain from losing someone close to them, they share believable on-screen chemistry.
The stoic film unsuccessfully tried to be humorous which only lead to awkward moments combined with clichéd lines and a familiar storyline. Robert Pattinson's acting keeps the film alive, proving that he is capable of heartwarmingly serious passion (outside twilight). Remember Me is saved by the films predictable ending which leaves you sincerely moved as it evokes a sense of devastation.
Audiences are reminded that it is important to hold on to what you believe and to choose to eat dessert before a main meal. Rating
