In a Super Bowl-level win for the streamer, Netflix really scored a touchdown with their latest heartwarming addition, One Day, starring the talented, Ambika Mod and Leo Woodall!

The recently released limited series, based on the 2009 novel by David Nicholls, tells the decades-spanning love story of Dex and Em, who, after graduating from university, reunite on the same day every year. The official synopsis as per Netflix's Media Center, reads: 

"One Day tells the story of Emma Morley and Dexter Mayhew who, on 15th July 1988, the night of their graduation, speak for the very first time. The next morning, they go their separate ways but where will they be on this one ordinary day the next year, and the year after that, and every year that follows? Each episode finds Dex and Em, one year older, on this one particular date, as they grow and change, move together and apart, experience joy and heartbreak. One Day is a decades-spanning love story, based on the worldwide bestseller by David Nicholls."

Unfortunately, if you were hoping to watch the earlier rendition of One Day on Netflix, you'll be disappointed, as the Lone Scherfig-directed movie is unavailable on the streaming giant. That said, if you want to watch it and are curious about how you can, you're in the right place!
