The Vow [DVD] [2012] <b>DVD</b> ~ Rachel McAdams
The Vow [DVD] [2012] DVD ~ Rachel McAdams
Paige (Rachel McAdams) and Leo (Channing Tatum) are a young married couple. A horrible accident leaves Paige with the past five years of her memory completely missing; she does not recognise her husband, and is surprised to find that she is no longer engaged to someone else.

With several flashbacks, we see what Leo and Paigeís life was like - how they first met, what happened when they got married - and these intersperse with her physical recovery from the accident.

He asks some difficult questions, attempting to reach out to people going through appalling circumstances, without sounding trite.

Iím glad I read this; it was a good reminder that life isnít easy, but that God is still… Read more
