One Day

Monday, August 22nd, 2011

The novel One Day was an acclaimed success.  A must read, the 2009 book written by David Nicholls has been turned into a film of the same name starring Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgiss.  Much anticipated the movie will be in cinemas across the UK this Wednesday 24th August 2011.  Both main characters wear classic sunglasses throughout.  Anne Hathaway‘s character Emma sports panto sunglasses, a style we think will be big in the next year.
