I didn't really like it all that much
Verified purchase
The first time I saw this movie, I didn't really like it all that much. I didn't hate it. But I didn't like it. I don't know what it was, but I just couldn't get into it. But I decided to give it another chance. And another, and another and... It got better with each viewing until I discovered I really loved it! Go figure. Maybe it was the two story lines that threw me off in the beginning. Maybe it was the typical city-girl-meets-country-boy theme. Whatever it was, I wasn't feeling it. However once I gave the movie a second chance, I saw things I didn't see the first time around. Took a closer look at the characters and their stories. Bottom line, I ended up loving the movie and now consider it a favorite go-to, when I'm looking for a feel-good moment.

Such a beautiful story!
Verified purchase
I absolutely love this movie. I originally planned on seeing it in theaters however that never happened. Tonight was my first time watching it and I must say that there is so much more to it story wise than the trailer leads on. Obviously the trailers don't give away the entire story but there was so much more than I never expected. This is definitely a movie I could watch more than once and I will be sure to have a box of tissues ready for next time! I loved the fact the movie combined two entirely different generations to create this love story. I highly recommend this film to those who enjoy the Notebook and want something similar.

Better than the novel
Verified purchase
I read the novel and renamed it "The Longest Read" as I took almost a year to slug through it.

The film is another entity entirely. The characters are interesting and well played and the storyline is concise to keep the viewer interested. Alan Alda plays the narrator of his past with his beloved wife Ruth. The actors playing their younger counterparts are well cast and shows what a loving heart both of them had.

It leads to how they amassed an enormous collection of valuable art. The collection is what draws the young lovers to their own HEA.

One of the better Sparks films
Verified purchase
Movies based on Sparks novel are very hit or miss and nothing has come close to the masterpiece that was "The Notebook". I did not have high expectations going into this film, so I was actually surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Scott Eastwood was a nice new face. The characters had good chemistry and the lines did not make me cringe like many other Sparks films do. I actually found myself enjoying both the stories in the film and the tie-in at the end was a nice twist. The film did hint at some aspects that were never touched upon (Luke's pill addiction?) but overall it was pretty enjoyable!

Absolutely a must see.
Verified purchase
I wanted to see this in theaters but didn't get the chance. This movie is so much move involved than the trailer reveals. It is a must see. I don't want to say too much so as not to give anything away. Eastwood is a talented actor. He can be a tough guy and a romantic all in one movie and switch between the two easily. Britt Robertson was a natural for the part. Excellent movie, I don't think you will be disappointed. It isn't just another chick flick.

Loved this! I am a country girl at heart ...
Verified purchase
Loved this! I am a country girl at heart and this one played at my heart strings for sure! In a day and time when there aren't very many romance movies coming out this was a breath of fresh air! Beautiful love story about a man and the choice between the woman he loves and the passion he lives. I really enjoyed that you got to watch two love stories play out over the course of this movie WIN WIN! The second love story also allowed for different time periods to be incorporated in the film which translated beautifully to the screen and to this story. If you have been looking for a romance don't miss this one!

A wonderful movie we will watch more than others
Verified purchase
Oh the sweetest movie!! We even took it to the in-laws house and the entire family was bawling by the end. Combines two love stories - one in this day and age and one in the early 1900's, spinning it so sweetly to combine the two stories, very cleverly. I recommend! If you like to sit down and listen to stories told by a grandma or grandpa or aunt or uncle from the good ole days, you'll likely love this!
