Love Story, Fate, Painful Past, Beautiful Connection
on June 16, 2016
This is a very sweet film that touches your heart. Nicholas Sparks has a real talent for telling beautiful stories about people in desperate situations finding love and rescue. The Lucky One tells the story of a young man who finds a photo while off at war and believes it to be a key to his destiny and a luck charm that kept him alive from a bomb attack. He travels the country and finds the woman and begins a passionate love affair. The story is about fate and destiny, but really it's above love and overcoming obstacles to find it. I think Nicholas Sparks wrote the book, turned film here, to speak less to fate...but more to the actions we take to ward of those people who would try to deprive us of happiness. The film's actors do a great job at expressing passion for each other and conflict once the truth of the photo (which led Efron's character to her) comes out.
If you enjoy a good love story, this is for you.
