One Day Review: Live, Laugh, Love, Cry Is The Motto For Netflix’s Absorbing Romantic TV Adaptation

One Day, adapted from David Nicholls’ book by creator Nicole Taylor, is a story that follows Emma (Ambika Mod) and Dexter (Leo Woodall) on the day of their graduation from university, with each chapter revisiting that date — July 15 — for 20 years. Their lives intertwine and interact in a myriad of ways, and novel readers learn to appreciate life and its many twists and turns, just as Em and Dex do. The novel was praised for its exemplary writing of two lonely souls grappling with their youthful aspirations and the realities of where their respective lives take them.
