Advantages: Romantic! Makes you smile, laugh in places and a wonderful storyline
The Notebook DVD (2004) is said to be "The Most Romantic Movie since Titanic, Heat-wrenchingly romantic" (Empire). The film has two main characters, Noah who is played by Ryan Gosling and Allie, who is played by Rachel McAdams. They are two young teenagers who have a whirlwind courtship, which then develops into captivating intimacy. The two teenagers come from two different social classes, Allie comes from quite an upper class background, whereas Noah is more working class.
Sadly circumstances mean that the couple are quickly separated, just as the couple are getting very close, spending hardly any time apart. Allie's upper class parents see Noah as not good enough for their Allie and move away from the area. Allie is heart broken, yet Noah writes to her everyday for a whole year. Her parents keep the letters, in order for her to focus on her career and forget Noah. Many years pass, until one day, when they are reunited, the romance is rekindled once again, and Allie is forced to choose between her soul mate and her first love.
The story is told by an older man, James Garner, who reguarly sits with an aging companion, Gena Rowlands. This makes it have a real homely and content feeling about the film.
The presentation of the film is brilliant, and as a young woman myself I found myself moved by this film, the cast of the film and the storyline is just fantastic! The film is rated at a 15 age, which I thought was quite appropriate, with mild references to sex. There is no doubt this is a classic tear-jerker and think it would hard not to cry over this film! But it was good tears - god, I am a typical girl!
Watch this if you like......romantic films, love stories.
Don't watch this if you....don't like romance in any way.
I am now going to ask for this best selling novel for Christmas!
Summary: Overall a top rated film, brilliant cast and wonderful film, a must see!
