Robinne Lee’s hit novel The Idea of You is finally getting its movie adaptation, and its first trailer is one fantastic ride. Anne Hathaway stars as a single mom whose life takes a wild turn when she falls in love with a young boy band singer, played by Nicholas Galitzine.

According to Amazon MGM Studios’ official logline, The Idea of You centers on Solène, a 40-year-old single mom who begins an unexpected romance with 24-year-old Hayes Campbell, the lead singer of August Moon, the hottest boy band on the planet.”

In addition to Hathaway and Galitzine in the lead roles, this romance drama also stars Ella Rubin, Reid Scott, Annie Mumolo, Viktor White, Raymond Cham, Jaiden Anthony, and Dakota Adan. It was co-written by Jennifer Westfeldt and Michael Showalter, who also serves as its director.

The Idea of You draws inspiration from Harry Styles’ time with One Direction, but Lee previously told Vogue it was never a story about the famous singer, but about “a woman approaching 40 and reclaiming her se-uality and rediscovering herself.”

The Idea of You will have its world premiere at South by Southwest on March 16, as the festival’s closing film. It will be released by Amazon Prime Video on May 2.
