CHICAGO – The hottest actor of the moment, smoldering Robert Pattinson, gets the opportunity to ditch the “Twilight” fangs and sink his teeth into a drama about New York City and the splintering factions of family in “Remember Me.”

HollywoodChicago.com Oscarman rating: 2.5/5.0
Rating: 2.5/5.0

Pattinson portrays Tyler, an aimless New York City college student who is estranged from his wealthy yet distant father (Pierce Brosnan). He maintains a relationship with his 11-year old sister Caroline (Ruby Jerins), mother (Lena Olin) and dead brother Michael. The journals that he keeps are letters to that brother, who committed suicide in 1995. The family gathers every year on the anniversary of that tragedy, and the story is centered around the sixth one in 2001.

Tyler’s raging anger toward the overall situation manifests itself in inappropriate ways. After intervening in a street fight, he is arrested by the attending cop Sgt. Craig (Chris Cooper), who is about to become connected to him in a surprising way. It is Tyler’s roommate, Aidan (Tate Ellington), who bets Tyler that he can’t score with his arresting officer’s daughter, Ally (Emilie de Raven).

So begins the love life between Tyler and Ally. During the summer and early autumn of 2001 in New York City, they will attempt to heal each other’s wounds – Ally has a troubling secret herself – and connect to the very emotional core that has been lacking in their lives. Wake them up when September ends.

“Remember Me” opens everywhere March 12th and features Robert Pattinson, Emilie de Ravin, Pierce Brosnan, Chris Cooper, Lena Olin and Ruby Jerins, directed by Allen Coulter. Rated “PG-13”
