Based on Moyes' best-selling novel of the same name, the upcoming Netflix film
is a dual-narrative love story. Oscar-nominee Felicity Jones plays Ellie, a journalist in present day London who finds a series of love letters that detail a star-crossed affair in the 1960s French Riviera between Jennifer Stirling (Shailene Woodley) and Anthony O’Hare (Callum Turner). "You witness a woman's journey in how she chooses to live her life," Woodley told EW
of her character back in January. "You recognize the struggles that come with being a woman, specifically in that time era, making decisions for herself and choosing a path that perhaps isn't the most well-worn, yet is
the most fulfilling. There aren't a lot of stories about women who do make decisions for themselves even though there are serious consequences and repercussions." Jennifer and Anthony's story is so gripping and romantic that Ellie is determined to track down the couple and, with the help a newspaper archivist played by Nabhaan Rizwan, she seeks to find out how their love story ended. Joe Alwyn
also stars in the film as Jennifer's husband, the unfeeling, cold Laurence Stirling.
