The film stars an ensemble cast headed by English actors and models Alex Pettyfer (I Am Number Four, Magic Mike) and Gabriella Wilde (The Three Musketeers) plus old pros Robert Patrick (the T-1000 in 1991's Terminator 2: Judgment Day) as Alex's father, Joely Richardson (101 Dalmatians) as Jade's mother Ann and Bruce Greenwood (National Treasure: Book of Secrets) as Jade's father Hugh.
Geared toward a younger audience than the 1981 Endless Love version their parents probably remembered watching, the simplicity of the movie plot of the 2014 remake is reminiscent of the love story in Romeo and Juliet, another Franco Zefffirelli-directed movie (1968) which, incidentally, I also watched. It even has a balcony scene, of sorts.
