Lone Scherfig talks book to HuffPost, Kristen McCracken talks with ONE DAY director Lone Scherfig about bring David Nicholls' best-selling novel to the screen.

One rule that I've set up for myself is that it could be a little more in-your-face when the scenes had more comedy. But if it was an emotional sequence, it had to be toned down. Also, there were so many time jumps that if you don't tone it down, it would be too domineering, and it wouldn't be as light as I wanted it to be.
