To be totally honest I swore off ANYTHING Nicholas Sparks a few years back after reading True Believer. Not to mention watching a few of his movies and nearly always one of the lovers die in a tragic way. So after YEARS, yes many many years, I thought I would watch The Best of Me. HUGE mistake. Like seriously, another lover in the movie dies. And then the person who does it gets away with it?!!!! Geeze talk about ruining my night and making me feel depressed. With The Notebook that was a happy cry, they live a long life TOGETHER, have babies and die together! That was a great book and movie. (I boo hooed like a baby over that one) But after this movie and being totally let down by NS again, I am officially over him, his books and his daggum movies. This is the absolute LAST anything Nicholas Sparks related that I will have anything to do with. Now I am going to watch The Other Woman. No love and no death, revenge instead. Yes that should wipe out this movie from my mind.
High school sweethearts Amanda (Michelle Monaghan) and Dawson (James Marsden) are being played out as their younger selves at the time through actors, Liana Liberato and Luke Bracey. We jump ahead some twenty years while the resentment has grown in Amanda given her situation and the loneliness in Dawson is now easier to see. Dawson did not fight for her and even pushed her away from him purposely. This time is shown through recollections of the past during their present adult characters. Amanda is stuck in a horrible marriage arrangement with a college age son. Dawson has had an accident and is now living with Tuck (Gerald McRanney) since having no family members on which to rely.
Now 'one' of their closest mutual friends passes away and they must go to help get all of his affairs in order and this then brings them face to face again. He is still in love with her, it has never stopped for him.Read more ›
