The Idea Of You: Trailer

Here’s a sneak peek at the official trailer:

Robinne Lee’s 2017 novel (and earlier Harry Styles fan fiction) and Anne Hathaway join forces in the swoon-worthy rom-com The Idea of You. The film follows the romance between 40-year-old art dealer and mother Solène (Hathaway) and 24-year-old Hayes Campbell (Nicholas Galitzine, Mary & George), English heartthrob and star of boy band August Moon.

Their twist of fate meeting at Coachella spirals into a clandestine affair, but their extremely different lives put pressure on their relationship. Can it survive the scrutiny and judgment from the public? As Entertainment Reporter Belen Edwards wrote in our summer movie preview, “Tune in for the surreal One Direction similarities, stay for Hathaway and Galitzine’s sparkling chemistry, then get way too invested in the many bops from fictional band August Moon.”

What streaming service is The Idea of You on?

Rather than getting a proper theatrical release, The Idea of You is being released straight to Prime Video, which Adlakha says is “a shame…because listening to (and more importantly, feeling) an entire audience being swept up in the movie is one hell of a fun experience.”

That means you’ll need either an Amazon Prime account or a separate Prime Video subscription to stream the film. Already a Prime member? Sweet; you’re good to go. Just sign into your account on your browser and navigate to the Prime Video tab or download the Prime Video app on your device in order to watch.
