David Ni­cholls (2009)

For Emma Mor­ley and Dex­ter May­hew, what starts off as a one-time date on July 15, 1988, on the last day of their lives as stu­dents in Ed­in­burgh, sparks off a 20-year friend­ship that sees them meet ev­ery year on that same date. Ni­cholls’ best­seller and 2011 film ad­dresses the clas­sic ‘can a man and woman just be friends’ trope along­side the pow­ers of fate. It’s an as­tute, hu­mor­ous, and at times truly heart­break­ing com­ing-of-age story chart­ing two very dif­fer­ent char­ac­ters dur­ing the peaks and troughs of their lives, loves and am­bi­tions.
