Remember Me is an emotionally taxing film about hard romance and the tension the loss of a loved one puts on family relationships.
Tyler (Robert Pattinson) has had a bitter relationship with his aloof father since his brother, Michael, passed away. Ally's father has been overprotective of her since her mother was murdered ten years ago.
These two wounded youngsters fall in love and begin a relationship that seems doomed, as Ally's dad is the cop who arrested Tyler after he broke up a street fight outside a bar one night.
Many of my female friends have said a part of them doesn't want to watch Remember Me, because it looks too sad and emotional. Well, they're right. There is a lot of overwrought emotion, but not much intelligent content.
Remember Me is a morally loose film about a romance between two rebellious, misunderstood people trying to cope with loss, hurt and opposed love.
