The adaptation of Robinne Lee’s novel The Idea of You was a long time coming, and Amazon finally shared the first trailer with the world. Anne Hathaway and Nicholas Galitzine star in this romance drama, which captures a whirlwind romance between a single mom and a boy band singer.

Hathaway will star as Solène, a 40-year-old single mom, who finds herself unexpectedly swept into a risky romance with 24-year-old Hayes Campbell, the lead singer of the popular boy band August Moon.

“As they begin a whirlwind romance, it isn’t long before Hayes’ superstar status poses unavoidable challenges to their relationship, and Solène soon discovers that life in the glare of his spotlight might be more than she bargained for,” reads Amazon MGM Studio’s official logline.

Robinne Lee was originally inspired to write the original novel while exploring the media’s fascination with Harry Styles and his boy band One Direction during the 2010s. Even though Galitzine’s character was loosely based on Styles, her main goal was to write a story about a woman rediscovering herself while approaching her 40s.

The Idea of You will have its world premiere at South by Southwest on March 16 as its closing film, before heading to Amazon Prime Video on May 2.
