Fate brings together two strangers, but they may not remain close in Forget Me Not, a romantic drama from the UK. Will Fletcher (Tobias Menzies) is a talented but struggling musician who is playing a pub gig one evening when he meets Eve Fisher (Genevieve O'Reilly), a lovely, free-spirited woman working as a barmaid. Eve soon catches Will's eye, and when she is accosted by a drunken customer, he comes to her rescue. A grateful Eve ends up going to a party with Will after work, and as the evening wears on, the two begin to wonder if they have found love at first sight. However, after spending the night at Will's apartment, Eve learns that he has a secret he has not shared with her, and that their time together may not be as long as she hoped. Like the acclaimed film, Before Sunrise, this couple learns that their limited time together leads to their revealing more about themselves than they normally would, as well as the quixotic enchantment of a first encounter between two strangers whose paths could lead them anywhere.
