Romantic Movie Night Contender: Hallmark’s Remember Sunday
May 25th, 2016
Since this just popped up on my DVR list again, after airing on HallMark Movies & Mysteries, I thought I’d share it. It’s one of those movies I’ll keep until I can’t keep it anymore: Remember Sunday If you’re in the mood for something romantic, this is your movie. Staring Zachary Levi and #Alexis Bledel (calling #Gilmore Girls fans) this is about a man with anterograde #amnesia who has to remake his life every day… and then he falls in love. But what about tomorrow? When you can’t make new memories, how to hold on to the one you most want to remember?
The official summary:
A lonely, down-on-her-luck waitress meets a handsome, quirky jewelry store clerk and thinks that maybe, finally, she’s met a “good guy.” The more Molly gets to know Gus, the more she’s intrigued by him. Yes, he’s a little eccentric, but he’s also incredibly sweet and considerate. Unbeknownst to Molly, this “good guy” was a brilliant astrophysicist who suffered an aneurism and has lost all of his short-term memory. Every day is a brand new day—literally—for Gus. He must navigate the world anew…and that includes his relationship with her. As Molly’s love for Gus continues to grow, he discovers that he can indeed fall in love with the same woman every day. But can she see a future with a man who cannot recall their past? Remember Sunday is a touching, fun romance about life’s possibilities when we “love in the moment.”
Since any self-respecting author of romantic fiction can at least respect the plot device of amnesia, this movie is a great example of how to do it right. The movie starts with a great set up of his life and how he’s dealt with his condition since it started. But beyond being a Gilmore Girls fan who would probably watch anything Alexis Bledel was in, this movie stands up on its own as a worthy romantic movie night contender.
If it’s not popping on your channel guide, you can buy it directly at Hallmark.
