Anne Hathaway falls for a pop star in ‘The Idea of You’

Anne Hathaway headlines the unexpected love story at the heart of The Idea of You in the newly released trailer. The film, based on the 2017 novel of the same name by Robinne Lee, tells the story of a 40-year-old single mom (Hathaway) who falls for a 24-year-old international pop star played by Nicholas Galitzine.
In the trailer, Hathaway’s Solène takes her 16-year-old daughter to Coachella after her newly ex-husband cancels his plans to chaperone the vacation. At the festival, she meets and begins an unexpected romance with Hayes Campbell (Galitzine), the lead singer of August Moon, the hottest boy band on the planet. As the two navigate their unorthodox romance, Solène must also learn to juggle her career and her daughter while avoiding the 24-hour news cycle in pursuit of Campbell.
“What about what people will say,” Solène asks Hayes in the trailer. “I don’t care what they’ll say,” he tells her. Rumours have it that his character is based on British pop star and former One Direction band member Harry Styles. The Idea of You is set for a streaming release on Prime Video on May 2.
