The Magic of the Movies is Back!

An absolute charmer. Safe Haven. A joy to the eyes. A joy to the heart. Second chances. Second romances.

A story of healing and redemption set in the small water-swept neighborly coastline of South Port, North Carolina. Stunning visuals move the story along with the grace and glow of Southern Hospitality at its best. Story author Nicholas Sparks knows and shares his characters with affection.

Director Lasse Hallstrom , holds a steady rein on this romantic drama, digging us deeper into each character with a deft gentle touch. Wonderful casting with Julianne Hough playing a running-from-her-past waitress and Josh Duhamel as the small-town lonely widower. The romantic chemistry here is beyond hot. It's incendiary.

The DP sure know how to light these actors. Great visuals of consoling rustic evening sunsets, followed by ever-hopeful morning ocean sunrises. Scenes dance along with clever editing, moving this compelling adventure forward like a seasoned Olympic ice skater, gliding on her home-town ice.

Will encourage all my SAG acting friends to watch this work of art. This work of the heart. Missing some movie magic in your life? Here it is.

One of the best Nicholas Sparks movies!!
Verified purchase
definitely not your regular chick flick, but quite possibly one of the best Nicholas Sparks movies next to the Best of Me. I watched this movie with my dad when it came on the tv and we immediately got sucked in. by the end of the movie he was balling! we were both crying! it's very intense at some points but that is what keeps in so interesting and addicting. Absolutely 100% recommend this movie! definitely for ages 15 and older unless you skip the bedroom scene cause other than that its perfect for teenage girls. Quite possibly my favorite Nicholas Sparks movie. I recommend to just go ahead a buy it. you won't regret it!

A Wonderful Feel Good Movie You Have to Love
Verified purchase
This is a wonderful movie to watch over and over again. It is such a feel good movie and one just right on a rainy day to relax and enjoy. The casting is perfect and the story is sweet. There is nothing not to like - even the parts that get you mad, when you think all the happiness might end, it still works out and all is well! What a great price for a great movie!

A Hugely Under Rated Movie
Verified purchase
OMG, I just finished streaming this and it takes a lot to get to me but this movie did. I won't give it away but the ending is simply amazing and something I would have never in a million years have expected. Josh Duhamel is a hugely under rated and under used Actor as is Julianne Hough. I remember Josh Duhamel from All My Children back in the 80's and then there was the Transformers franchise but he does not get near the exposure that he should. Julianne Hough is known for her time on Dancing With The Stars and her Rooms To Go TV commercials and she was in the second release of Footloose but she is under rated as well. This movie has influences from Message In A Bottle and Sleeping With The Enemy but it is in a class of its own. See this movie, you will not regret it.

Even though this movie is quite predictable, I loved it. This has become one of my new favorite movies. I think Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough have great chemistry in this movie. I would buy this movie for all of my girl friends and family.

Good movie

Good movie. Didn't like the ending. If it were me, Some stills during credits showing the wedding, ending with a family picture with the new baby. But, that is just me.
