The Idea Of You

While its age gap is nowhere near that of tabloidy awards contender May December, The Idea Of You still features romantic partners who are apart in years. The (admittedly very loose) inspiration here is Harry Styles' dating life and pop megastardom as Anne Hathaway's 40-something single mother stars dating 24-year-old singer Hayes Campbell (Red, White & Royal Blue's Nicholas Galitzine) and much drama ensues. Check out the first trailer:

Drawn from Robinne Lee's bestseller, The Idea Of You introduces us to Solène (Hathaway), who strikes up an unexpected love connection with Hayes (Galitzine), the scream-generating, hunksome front man of August Moon, the hottest boy band on the planet. Following a chance encounter at dusty annual Stateside music fest Coachella (where Hayes' band is among the headliners and Solène is chaperoning her teenage daughter's trip to the event), there is an undeniable spark between the pair.

Cue a swift romance and seeming bliss — at least until his fame and the level of paparazzi scrutiny it attracts begins to wear on their relationship. Has Solène taken on more than she ever bargained for? And more importantly, does she know she's beautiful? Wait, not that bit.

The Idea Of You, directed by The Big Sick's Michael Showalter based on the script he and Jennifer Westfeldt adapted from Lee's book, will launch on Prime Video on 2 May.
