Origin of “The Idea of You”

Rumors emerged that writer Robinne Lee was inspired by a platonic love fanfiction involving Harry Styles, former lead singer of One Direction. However, in an article in Time magazine, Robinne said that categorizing her story as fanfiction was “diminishing and dismissing” her writing ability.

“To presume that a romance with a fictional celebrity in a relationship must be based on an existing celebrity – in this case, as the internet decided, Harry Styles – is unimaginative at best and sexist at worst”

criticized the actress as well

According to Robinne, the literary work “The Idea of You” came to life after a conversation with her husband, Eric Hayes, where she pondered what would happen if she fell in love with a famous singer half her age. Because of her career, the writer had insights into the backstage of the celebrity world and shaped the 24-year-old character based on her personal experiences.

What to Expect from “The Idea of You”?

“The Idea of You” is a story that oscillates between humor and romance, sweetness and depth, featuring a duo of well-known faces in the Hollywood film industry.

The main differential of the plot is how it challenges social norms and reminds us of the beauty and complexity of human relationships, addressing ageism.

Age discrimination even touched Anne Hathaway herself, who revealed at the press conference for the work that she stopped receiving offers for romance films as she aged.

Taking the stage for a post-screening discussion at the Paramount Theater in Austin, Texas, Hathaway had difficulty speaking, overwhelmed by the emotion and affection of the audience:

“I can’t speak. I love you guys so much. You have no idea the gift you just gave us with your reception, being so connected to every little detail of this.”

Meanwhile, the idolized teen heartthrob Nicholas Galitzine emphasized the connection between him and his scene partner during filming. The actor, known for the romantic comedy “Red, White & Royal Blue” (2023), also in Prime Video, stated:

“It’s not something you consciously feel like you’re doing or working to achieve. It’s human. Connection is something that flows.”

Therefore, with Anne Hathaway and Nicholas Galitzine delivering a lot of chemistry and captivating performances, the film promises a cinematic experience beyond expectations. Get ready to fall in love, laugh, and reflect on important themes all in one movie!
