Remember Me is a 2010 American romantic coming of age drama film directed by Allen Coulter, and screenplay by Will Fetters. It stars Robert Pattinson, Emilie de Ravin, Chris Cooper, Lena Olin and Pierce Brosnan. In 1991, a 12-year-old girl named Alyssa "Ally" Craig is with her mother on the New York City Subway platform, on the F Line at 18th Avenue and McDonald Avenue elevated station in Brooklyn. Suddenly, she witnesses her mother being murdered by muggers. She is scarred from the events, never going to the subway again. Ten years after her mother's death, a 21-year-old Ally (Emilie De Ravin) is a student at NYU. She lives at home with her overprotective father, Neil (Chris Cooper), a NYPD detective who worries that she is becoming independent and will run into danger. Tyler Hawkins (Robert Pattinson) is a moody, directionless, yet good-moraled 21-year-old, who is auditing classes at NYU and working in the university bookstore.
