Nicholas’ character, Hayes Campbell, and Anne’s character, Soléne Marchand, have fallen in love and can’t help but stay together. Against all odds, the 40-year-old single mom and the 24-year-old boy band super star briefly split in the middle of the film because of a misunderstanding. Hayes’ bandmates from August Moon reveal to Soléne that he’s used the “Closer” song on other women before her, and she leaves Europe after telling him she’s “ashamed” of being with him due to their age gap.

After paparazzi pictures and tabloid headlines threaten to humiliate her, Soléne later apologizes to Hayes for what she said, and they quickly reconcile. Nevertheless, they still can’t be together because of one reason: Soléne’s daughter, Izzy, is being harassed and bullied by peers over her mother’s relationship. Soléne and Hayes agree to break up toward the end of the film, and they share one last kiss after exchanging emotional “I love yous.”

However, viewers don’t need to lose hope. Hayes asks Soléne to revisit their relationship in five years after Izzy goes off to college. During the film’s epilogue, Soléne is changing channels on TV one night and comes across an interview with Hayes. Hayes reveals he is now a solo artist and is returning to L.A. to visit someone, but he never reveals who. Shortly thereafter, Soléne and Hayes reunite at her art gallery.

The movie ends with Soléne’s tearful yet happy reaction upon seeing Hayes. Although viewers don’t know whether or not they actually get back together, it’s clear they still harbor strong feelings for one another.

The Idea of You book has a starkly different conclusion than the movie, and it broke readers’ hearts. Soléne does, in fact, end her romance with Hayes because they are at different phases in their lives. However, Hayes shows up at Soléne’s doorstep weeks later to inform her he has quit August Moon. Nevertheless, Soléne tells him he can’t end his career for her.
