Remember Me,” is not just a movie about a first real love, its about coping with life when tragedy happens, and dealing with parents as a teenager.  It also reminds us of the horrific day we remember as September 11th; something I believe is a good reminder for those individuals who seem to forget what these terrorists are capable of, and why we are at war. The film takes place in New York City.

The film centers on Tyler Hawkins (Robert Pattinson, “The Twilight Saga” Movies, “Little Ashes“) a teen distraught by the loss of his brother, and the lack of his father (Pierce Brosnan, “The Matador,” “The Thomas Crown Affair“) big wig lawyer.  He’s a good brother for his younger sister, the protector type, and wants his father to be aware that he has children, and be more involved in their lives.

Hawkins meets Ally (Emilie De Raven) on purpose, and his goofball room-mate thinks its a good idea.  Soon, the pair are inseparable, and fall in love.  They both have similar trust issues, and seem to click together and make a balanced couple.

This film is sad, and shows how people develop certain fears, and why the world is such a different place than it was for the baby boomers.  I think it is a film that you will learn from, and is what I call a slice-of-life romance.  This is an excellent film.

Pattinson really shows his talent in this one.  Only watch this if you are in a drama genre mood.
