The most beautiful film of our time.,
This review is from: The Notebook [DVD] (DVD)
The most beautiful romance of our time.
The Notebook is the tale of an unsuspecting love between upper class Allie (McAdams) and her not so upper class lover Noah (Gosling). Destined not to be together, this film shows us all that love really does conquer all, that is until summer is over and Allie is packed off back to school.
Is there any chance of these desperately in love teenagers defying their social restraints?
Noah thinks so. Everyday for a year Noah writes to Allie. He hears nothing.
But years later a house renovation is to change everything.
This may sound like a conventional love story, but the way director Cassavetes flicks throughout the film, from past to the present with an elderly husband reading this notebook to his Alzheimer suffering wife, brings a whole new emotional level to the film.
And with an ending to empower and bring hope to us all, this film is not to be missed.
