The sparks between Richard Gere and Diane Lane--so memorable in Unfaithful--smolder again in the sweepingly romantic Nights in Rodanthe. Based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks, the film is unapologetically sentimental, and enjoyable completely on its own terms, a small gem of an escape, complete with storm-tossed coastline. Lane plays Adrienne, a wronged wife whose husband (Christopher Meloni) was a heel, but begs for another chance. She goes to clear her head at a remote North Carolina inn, where the sole occupant is Paul, a doctor, played by Gere, who is battling his own demons. If the writing is on the wall about what will become of our two leading actors, it's to Lane's and Gere's deep credit that they make their tentative connection, wariness, and growing feelings human and quite believable. Love is messy, and grownup love, even more so. As they get to know each other, Adrienne shows Paul a small wooden box that holds her keepsakes: "I made it to keep special things safe." Paul turns to her, looking her squarely but gently in the eye, and says, "What keeps you safe?" At that moment, every woman watching the film is in the palm of his hand. The film squarely addresses the reality that people over age 25 do, in fact, yearn for, and find, love. If only more studios would realise the deep, appreciative audience for films like this. --A.T. Hurley

Product Description

In Nights in Rodanthe, Oscar nominee Diane Lane stars as Adrienne Willis, a woman with her life in chaos, who retreats to the tiny coastal town of Rodanthe, in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, to tend to a friend's inn for the weekend. Here she hopes to find the tranquility she so desperately needs to rethink the conflicts surrounding her-- a wayward husband who has asked to come home, and a teenage daughter who resents her every decision. Almost as soon as Adrienne gets to Rodanthe, a major storm is forecast and a guest named Dr. Paul Flanner (Richard Gere) arrives. The only guest at the inn, Flanner is not on a weekend escape but rather is there to face his own crisis of conscience. Now, with the storm closing in, the two turn to each other for comfort and, in one magical weekend, set in motion a life-changing romance that will resonate throughout the rest of their lives.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite lovely, actually 29 Oct 2008
By Anna
I'm 29, and I have to admit, it was so refreshing seeing a beautifully told love story for people of an older generation. There seems to be this taboo surrounding it where, upon turning 40 or so, people no longer need to feel loved, and are no longer capable of experiencing love that gives you butterflies and knocks your feet from under you and leaves you poleaxed. This film puts paid to that in short order.

Nicholas Sparks is the father of romance - a lone male voice in amongst a sea of oestrogen - and he has a way of creating epic love that puts you right there with the people feeling it. Film adaptations don't really live up to the standard of the book (the only exception being, perhaps, The Notebook another of Sparks's [a film of such power and beauty I don't even know the words to describe it]) but Nights in Rodanthe comes close - with one complaint.

Adrienne and Paul (Diane Lane and Richard Gere respectively, last seen together in Unfaithful) fall in love over the space of a weekend while alone in an inn that sits right on the beach. The cinematography is *stunning*: it's all washed out blues and bleached skies; bleak foamy seas and desolate sand dunes and long peppermint grasses being whipped about by the wind. The world created is insular and beautiful and mirrors their loneliness, and as they hold onto each other mid-storm, you can certainly see how deeply romantic the it is.

Add to that, both characters are going through difficult times, and both desperately need to be brought back to life; they both need to meet someone they could love... and yet, somehow the chemistry isn't quite there.

5.0 out of 5 stars fabulous book and dvd...a must buy 2 Mar 2009
By Liz P
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a brilliant film and Richard Gere and Diane Lane give wonderful performances in this adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks book. Its a story that really makes you think...and we should all make as much of opportunities when they come our way. Beautiful story and a film to watch over and over again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very enjoyable film 5 April 2009
I watched this movie on a flight, which is a rarity for me and I was so captivated by the story that it made the trip pass very quickly. It is no great masterpiece but it is very well done and I found it to be a very touching story. It is one of the few films that I would bother to watch again, some time in the future when I have forgotton the details. It is well worth a watch, you will probably really enjoy it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Romantic 30 April 2009
By Laura82
The novel written by Nicholas Sparks, who also wrote the Notebook, inspired the film.
Present day. Diane Lane (Adrienne) is a single mother and has 2 children.
One day, her husband calls her and asks her to be back with him. She's not sure, and says that she will need some time alone to think things through. She goes to her cottage in Rodanthe (where she also rents rooms), although nobody is there except Richard Gere, who plays Paul.
Paul is a doctor, divorced, who has a son, Mark (James Franco) of 28 years old, who is also a doctor. He doesn't have a good relationship with him because one year ago he performed surgery on a woman, and she died. Mark doesn't like the attitude of his dad because at the time he showed no emotion and seemed not to understand the loss of this man. He only blamed himself, because he wanted to be the best doctor he could be and he thinks he failed. Adrienne will help him to be a better man.
Adrienne's problem is that she wants to be the best mother she can be, and this is why she struggles with her personal life. Paul will help her see what she really wants out of life.
Soon, the two will embark on a love journey. This shows that even after a certain age, new love is possible. After that short period of time together, Paul decides that it's time for him to see his son again who lives in South America helping children there. He will be gone for a couple of months, but promises Adrienne to write her, and to come back for her and live their lives together. They begin to write to each other, and by doing so, they know each other more and more.
At the same time, Adrienne struggles with her teenage daughter who wanted her mum to be back with her dad.

4.0 out of 5 stars Second chance 7 April 2009
Nights In Rodanthe [DVD] [2008]

If you are looking for a story about life's second chance, and a little sadness, the right choice could be this movie. A very handsome Richard Gere with a nice Diane Lane in a fantastic location, where the story take place.

Nights In Rodanthe [DVD] [2008]

An excellent film that could be viewed as a family; however, it is a real "weepie"; keep the tissues at hand.
