There is one look a lead in a romantic film must master: the one that can make or break the romance that’s supposed to be the film’s heart. Eyes must sparkle with a certain kind of hunger, a yearning that’s instantly understood.

It’s a glance that communicates a deep need that only the other person can fulfill and assures us we’re in the hands of performers who can bring a believable smolder to their work. Thankfully, it’s a look that comes naturally whenever Anne Hathaway and Nicholas Galitzine lock eyes or sneak glances at each other in “The Idea of You.”
