Why you should watch “The Idea of You” on Prime Video

Prepare to be swept away by the captivating tale of The Idea of You set to premiere on Prime Video on May 2. Based on the acclaimed contemporary love story of author Robinne Lee, the film follows the life of Solène (Anne Hathaway), a 40-year-old single mother, whose world takes an unforeseen turn when she finds herself entangled in a whirlwind romance with Hayes Campbell (Nicholas Galitzine), the lead singer of the hottest boy band on the planet, August Moon.

Directed by Michael Showalter (The Big Sick) and boasting a stellar cast led by Academy award-winning actress and producer Anne Hathaway and talented actor Nicholas Galitzine, together with Ella Rubin, Reid Scott, and Annie Mumolo, The Idea of You delves into the complexities of love, fame, and personal relationships. 

Producer Cathy Schulman shares, “It’s about two people who wouldn’t likely be together but who really like each other. And, hopefully, you’ll want to go on this journey with them as they navigate their way into having a relationship against all kinds of obstacles.”

As Solène and Hayes navigate their budding romance, audiences will be charmed by the dynamic performances of Hathaway and Galitzine, who breathe life into their characters with depth and authenticity. Rubin, Scott, and Mumolo further enrich the narrative, each bringing their unique talents to the screen.

Experience the Magic of August Moon

Led by the charismatic lead singer, Hayes Campbell (Galitzine), alongside Raymond Cham Jr., Jaiden Anthony, Viktor White, and Dakota Adan, August Moon boasts a lineup of talent that goes beyond the ordinary. These multi-talented actors were chosen not only for their acting prowess but also for their remarkable dancing skills, which play a significant role in the film’s electrifying performances.

Under the direction of renowned choreographer Dani Vitale and music supervisor Frankie Pine, the members of August Moon underwent intensive training to deliver captivating stage shows and perform original songs that add an exciting dimension to the film’s narrative. From the pulsating energy of Dance Before We Walk to the heartfelt lyrics of Closer, August Moon captivates audiences with their charisma and talent, creating unforgettable moments that resonate long after the credits roll.

Cham Jr., who portrays Oliver, one of the members of August Moon, looked back on the experience, “we were really hyped to get on stage and finally be able to perform.” His sentiment is echoed by his co-stars, who share in the excitement of bringing the iconic boy band to life on screen.

Setting the Stage

Production designer Amy Williams meticulously crafted the vibrant world of The Idea of You, from the pulsating energy of Coachella to the cozy intimacy of Solène’s home and art gallery. With careful attention to detail, Williams transformed each setting into a vivid and immersive backdrop that enhances the film’s narrative. Collaborating closely with costume designer Jacqueline Demeterio, Williams ensured that the visual aesthetic harmonizes seamlessly with the characters’ attire, enriching the cinematic experience.

From the sun-drenched landscapes of Los Angeles to the electrifying atmosphere of Coachella, Williams’ artistry transports audiences into a world where love knows no bounds. Through her meticulous attention to detail and creative vision, Williams elevates the film’s setting, inviting audiences to immerse themselves in the heart of Solène and Hayes’ captivating romance.

The Idea Behind The Idea of You

Reflecting on the film’s themes, Hathaway shares, “we wanted to make a movie that would make audiences feel wonderful by telling a story about people who are a pleasure to know and are fun to watch together.”

Director Showalter adds, “it’s about something. I think, in our own small way, we’re commenting on how we, as a society, look at other people’s choices, and rush to judgment and want to have opinions about what other people choose to do with their relationships.”

Don’t miss the premiere of The Idea of You on May 2, exclusively on Prime Video. Subscribers can watch movies and series on hundreds of compatible devices from anywhere, at any time, and even download episodes for offline viewing at no extra cost. Prime Video is available in the Philippines for only PHP149 a month.
