Released on DVD May 3rd, Rachel Bilson (Jumper, The O.C) and Tom Sturridge (Pirate Radio) lead an all-star cast in this unforgettable love story. 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 also stars Richard Jenkins, Blythe Danner, Nikki Blonsky, and Jamie King.
I've never seen the acting talents of Tom Sturridge before, but I must say he impressed me with his acting in Waiting For Forever. His street performances alone, from juggling to magic tricks, were convincing and amazing to watch. Add that with his pureness and innocence and you've got a genuinely likable character. I don't usually get much from love stories or romances because they all seem the same but this one had a few scenes different from the norm, in the way that the story plays out. Although Waiting For Forever seems to be a movie geared towards teenage girls, it is a movie that females of all ages can revel in.
