Product Description

Rachel Bilson (Jumper, The O.C.) and Tom Sturridge (Pirate Radio) lead an all-star cast in this "refreshingly honest and original love story...with superb performances." (Boxoffice Magazine). Sturridge creates a mesmerizing and unforgettable character in Will, the quirky street performer with a free spirit and a heart of pure gold. The object of Will's lifelong affection is Emma (Bilson), the beautiful young actress whom he has never stopped loving since they were childhood sweethearts. But when they reunite, and Will gets swept up in Emma's complicated past, his innocence and all-consuming passion could cost him everything he's ever wanted.

Waiting for Forever is a film that's unlikely to elicit many neutral opinions; chances are you'll find it either cute 'n' quirky or cloying and annoying. At the center of this 2010 rom-com is the relationship between Will Donner (Tom Sturridge) and Emma Twist (Rachel Bilson). Friends since childhood, when she provided him with comfort and companionship following the traumatic death of his parents in a train crash, they've long since gone their separate ways--or so she thinks. Turns out that while Emma has been pursuing a career as an actress, Will has turned into a kind of peripatetic Peter Pan, only without the flying chops. A jobless (he earns spare change as a street juggler) dreamer and hopeless romantic who steadfastly refuses to engage with life's quotidian realities, he's been following Emma from place to place, a sort of benign stalker who has never had the nerve to approach or talk to her, preferring to hang back and worship her from afar. That changes when Emma returns to their Pennsylvania hometown, where her father (the reliable Richard Jenkins) is seriously ill and her ditzy mom (Bythe Danner) needs support. Encouraged by his well-adjusted banker brother (Scott Mechlowicz) and other friends, Will at last approaches her and confesses all. Complications ensue--including a credibility-defying, out-of-nowhere subplot involving Emma's L.A. boyfriend and an accidental homicide--but they do little to keep this tale from ending exactly as we expect it to. The only question involves whether you'll see "Willie" as a charming lost puppy who's never gotten over his parents' death and could use a hug, or as an infuriating ne'er-do-well who needs some sense slapped into him. The indie nu-folk music on the soundtrack leaves little doubt about where director James Keach and writer Steve Adams's sentiments lie. --Sam Graham

Let me say right up front that if you are a realist then this is definitely NOT the movie for you; this is a movie that will only be appreciated by idealists.

I have absolutely fallen in love with this movie. I stumbled across it completely randomly and am so glad that I did. The characters were all interesting and I couldn't help but love the main character, Will. He demonstrated a kind of love that was completely selfless and it was so touching to see. I laughed and cried while watching this movie and when it was over I walked away with a renewed sense of hope. I only wish that there were more movies like this being made today.

One of the undiscovered and unsung gems, and mostly due to the talents of the leading man/boy who made me remember a little of what truly matters in my life. Tom Sturridge's portrayal of the lead character is one of the most nuanced of any attempt at edgy psychotic love I've ever seen in the movies. What he managed to give us poor, sane plain old everydayers was a pure glimpse into great soulful beauty. The result of a well written and filmed story that can still make me tear up. I'm convinced there are more people out there who will one day discover the lovely beauty of this film.

This is an idealized look at love and loss. Willy grew up with the great love of his life, Emma, in childhood only to be torn from her when they were 10 years old. Throughout the subsequent years, he keeps his love alive by being in places where she is even if it means only catching glimpses of her. When the illness of Emma's father bring her back to their hometown, Willey follows and magic occurs but not in any conventional, or for Emma, completely knowing way. The unfolding of the story and its conclusion are beautifully told by Rachel Bilson (have always adored her) and Tom Sturridge with strong support by the always great Blythe Danner and Richard Jenkins, one of our finest actors. The film is endearing but also heartbreaking. The theme of the death of one's parents permeates every aspect of the story but is done with taste and the proper reverence. To those who have experienced this, have some tissues handy to dab away your tears but don't let that stop you from watching this delightful movie.

The only reason i gave it four stars is because the characters didn't develop very well. I didn't empathize with the mother or the father, and I didn't see their role in the story as necessary. Other than that, this is a cute indie movie that should be more famous than it actually is!

I gave this 5 stars, not because it was perfect on all levels, but because it grabs your heart and squeezes. It's sad, sweet, funny, charming, and I cried my eyes out. It wasn't the romance that touched me, It was the love. Love between two very different brothers, lifelong friends, a wife and her dying husband, and lastly, boy and girl. I love romantic comedy, but this was that and so much more.

I have no idea why I bothered with this movie - I rented it for some "crazy" reason and fell in love.

I am 80 - not a kid! But this movie is so very charming and is so very possible. The sad thing is that most people may think this could never happen, but I know it can.

I did not know the leads in this but from the beginning I was charmed. I watched it on the computer screen and leaned into the movie to be as close as I could be. Tom Sturridge has my heart and Rachel Bilson turned out to be as dear in the end as he was throughout the film.

I can't say more than this but buy the film at the price on Amazon. You will find it may be a cult film. The music is great. I bought the soundtrack on iTunes, too. I literally have no words but WONDERFUL for the film.

The last scene, shot at the wharf in San Francisco, is a killer scene! You will play it over and over. Enjoy and fall in love again!

Despite the low raitings this great movie is getting, I completely fell in love with it. I ran across it on Netflix quite a few times, but always ended up deciding I would watch it later, and I did, and then I had wished I had watched it sooner!

The story, characters and actors, where all great. It was so sweet, heart warming, touching and romantic.
This movie isn't for everyone (apprently) but I appreciated and loved everymoment of it. Especially the ending! So sweet! :'D

Waiting for Forever is a very unusual film but one reminiscent of movies made during the 1930s and early 1940s that contain an underlying and somewhat cliché theme that love lasts forever or returns in some form. With this as the main premise of the film, main characters Emma Twist (Rachel Bilson) and Willie Donner (Tom Sturridge) had been childhood friends, become re-acquainted when both return to their hometown after leading separate lives. Emma became an actress in Hollywood while Willie dealt with his parents' death and became a street performer somewhere along the West Coast while still attempting to find Emma. The film appears to have a predictable storyline, however, beyond that portion of the story, complications arise.

The film has dramatic and romantic overtones but also involves the intricacies of relationships. Both Emma and Willie must confront major concerns within each of their respective families as well as friends that enter the picture. For Willie there is much concern of his state of mind by his brother who has taken the responsibility of keeping in touch with him while he literally juggled his way through a vagabond life. And for Emma, she along with her mother (Blythe Danner) have had to deal with her father's illness that is not completely explained and is one of the odd portions of the storyline; this part of the story appears fragmented because Emma's father (Richard Jenkins) appeared like he was getting well but by the end of the film it is questionable. And to add to the complications, Emma's boyfriend (Matthew Davis) surprisingly shows up to forgive her for past misgivings, but his story is much more complex than realized as well as her own -- one of those whiplash moments.
