Directed by Allen Coulter, Remember Me stars Robert Pattinson, made famous by his role as the vampire love interest in the Twilight Saga, and Emilie de Ravin, who had her breakthrough role on the ever-popular show “Lost.” The two play young lovers who begin an affair, which is kept secret from their families as their love continues to intensify. Remember Me is about their struggle through the increasing tension of the situation that threatens to tear their newfound relationship apart. Pattinson has the role of the troubled bad boy who falls for the daughter (Ravin) of the cop who arrested him earlier in the movie. Also in the film are Hollywood names Pierce Brosnan and MA local Chris Cooper, each playing one of the youngster’s fathers.
Residing in Kingston, MA, Chris Cooper has done nothing but wow audiences over his long and diverse career. From his challenging role in American Beauty to his Oscar winning performance in Adaptation to his more recent role in The Company Men (which was shot almost exclusively in Massachusetts), Cooper has proven time and time again that he is one of the most talented and versatile actors working today.
Having darker and racier scenes than audiences may be used to with the English heartthrob, this film gives Robert Pattinson the chance to show another side of his acting abilities. With two promising young stars in the leads and two experienced actors as their respective father figures, Remember Me looks to be a movie that viewers are sure to remember.
Remember Me opens nationwide on March 12th, 2010.
