Anne Hathaway and Nicholas Galitzine sizzle in steamy trailer for Prime Video’s The Idea of You

40-year-old single mum meets sexy 24-year-old pop star

Prime Video has just released the trailer for the new flick The Idea of You and basically, everything is tingling when we see the HOT AF chemistry between Anne Hathaway and Nicholas Galitzine!

If the idea of a 40-year-old single mum engaging in a passionate love affair with a sexy British pop star who is 16 years her junior is your idea of the perfect rom-com, then this brand-new flick is going to get your heart racing!

The movie is actually based on the acclaimed novel of the same name by Robinne Lee and while fans reckon the story depicted was based on Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde’s romance, it’s actually not the case, given it was written in 2017 and they didn’t start dating until January 2021.

Here’s everything we know about the new flick!

Official Synopsis

The Idea of You centres on Solène (Anne Hathaway), a 40-year-old single mom who begins an unexpected romance with 24-year-old Hayes Campbell (Nicholas Galitzine), the lead singer of August Moon, the hottest boy band on the planet.

When Solène must step in to chaperone her teenage daughter’s trip to the Coachella Music Festival after her ex bails at the last minute, she has a chance encounter with Hayes and there is an instant, undeniable spark.

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.
