In Remember Me, Robert Pattinson plays Tyler, a troubled 22-year-old who has more family issues than you can shake a stick at. Then he meets Ally, who lives each day to the full since her mother’s murder. But can the tragic circumstances that bought them together keep them there?
“There’s so much more to it than just a love story,” says Robert’s co-star Emilie de Ravin. “It’s about how families and individuals are affected by and react to love and loss and fear and grief, and all of these things.”
After Twilight’s sucess, Robert has his pick of Hollywood’s top roles, so what made him decide to take Remember Me? “It felt very different to anything else was out there, and it felt very real. And I don’t think most films do feel very real in the way that they’re written. So hopefully that comes across,” Robert explained, before adding. “I just really liked the character, I really related to him.”
But what did Robert and Emilie think about working together? “I can’t think of anyone more perfect for the role,” gushed Emilie. “He really was as equally passionate about it as I was and we really did everything we could to develop our roles, and make everything as natural and real as possible.” And Robert was equally as complimentary. “It was really good, she’s really great,” he said, before adding, “Very feisty.”
