Remember Me Review
In this romantic drama current teenage heart throb, Pattinson plays Tyler Hawkins, a sort of modern day James Dean, rebellious and brooding, emotionally crippled by the suicide of his older brother and the indifference of his work-obsessed, filthy rich, Wall Street lawyer father (Pierce Brosnan) who he is obviously terrified of becoming. Tyler is nearly the same age his brother was when he took his life, a milestone that manipulates his emotional state like a marionette on strings.
When Tyler’s not in the dilapidated Lower East Side apartment he shares with his happy-go-lucky, smart-alecky roommate Aidan (Tate Ellington), he can be found with his 11-year-old sister Caroline (Ruby Jerins), whom he obviously looks up to and shares the most intimate connection of their fragmented family. Tyler is an apathetic student at NYU and it is there that he meets Ally (Emilie de Ravin, in the film’s one preposterously contrived moment), an equally wounded young woman still scarred after witnessing the brutal murder of her mother 10 years earlier.
