Hathaway's accent in 'One Day' awaits judgment

LONDON (AP) - The accent is on Anne Hathaway at the European premiere of her new film.

It's one big night for the American Oscar-nominated actress as she unveils her performance as Emma Morely in "One Day," on Tuesday at Westfield shopping center in west London.

Based on the best-seller by David Nicholls, the story follows Emma's relationship with university friend Dexter Mayhew by catching up with them on the same day every year.

British actor Jim Sturgess, who portrays Dex, and the film's director, Lone Scherfig ("An Education"), will also attend.

But all eyes and ears will be on Hathaway, as the local crowd decides whether or not her Yorkshire accent can make the grade.

The movie opens in the U.K. on Wednesday.
