Only You | Dir Harry Harry Wootliff | UK | 119 mins | 2018 | 15 | Drama/Romance
As Glasgow celebrates New Year’s Eve, a chance encounter brings Jake (Josh O’Connor) and Elena (Laia Costa) together and the attraction is instant. Sexy and smitten, they’re totally swept up in each other and the relationship develops at speed. Sure, there’s an age gap, but not one that matters to them, especially when everything feels this good. But this bliss is tested when the couple consider starting a family and hit a brick wall of biology. For her feature debut, Harry Wootliff has crafted an authentic romantic drama that is fearless in its look at modern love, particularly the emotions and practicalities surrounding fertility. It’s a rarely explored topic, brought vividly to life by O’Connor and Costa, two of the most charismatic onscreen presences in contemporary cinema. Premiered at the London Film Festival Competition to rave reviews “a perfectly realised story of love and longing” and Mark Kermode’s film of the week
