Overview

The Notebook

Directed by Nick Cassavetes, this adaptation of author Nicholas Sparks's bestselling novel revolves around Noah Calhoun's (James Garner) regular visits to a female patron (Gena Rowlands) of an area nursing home. Rather than bore her with the inanities of everyday life, Calhoun reads from an old, faded notebook containing the sweeping account of a young couple (Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams) whose love affair was tragically put to a halt after their separation in the midst of World War II. Seven years later, the couple was reunited, and, despite having taken radically different paths, they found themselves unable to resist the call of a second chance. The Notebook also features Joan Allen, Sam Shepard, and Kevin Connolly. ~ Tracie Cooper

As usual, Sparks doesn't disappoint with "The Notebook" as he weaves the tale of two teenagers, Noah and Allie, who meet one fateful summer and fall in love. Since the course of true love is never smooth, it should come as no surprise that Allie's parents do not approve of her relationship with Noah. He does not have the education, money, or social prominence they wish for their daughter. Allie and her parents move away and Noah writes to her for years, but after never receiving an answer gives up. WWII comes, lives change, but one thing remains constant---neither Allie nor Noah can forget the other. As Noah's friend Gus tells him, first love changes your life forever and no matter what else happens in your life, the memory of it stays with you. And so it is that fourteen years later and three weeks before her wedding, Allie finds herself driving to New Bern to find Noah for reasons she herself does not fully understand. Their reunion proves once again that they are true soul-mates, but it that enough? Can Allie forsake the "perfect mate" who has not only her love but also the approval of her parents? Can she walk out on Noah for a second time? Will Noah let her go? The story then skips to the nursing home where an 80-year old Noah resides and spends his time reading poetry to his fellow residents. But down the hall is a very special woman. The reader will be overcome with emotion as this relationship unfolds and the missing pieces of Noah and Allie's story are revealed in the notebook he carries with him. Intensely romantic and a tribute to the power of true love. A True tear jerker.

This movie taken from a novel by Nicholas Sparks is everything you would want it to be. It's romance at it's best. It's a look into a lifetime of love through the eyes of an aging couple and done with supurb acting on the parts of everyone involved. One of my very favorites!

This is a great movie because it¿s romantic, a good story and its amazing. The movie is about two teenagers named Allie and Noah fell in love on a summer romance. They were quickly separated by Allies rich parents who didn¿t think that Noah wasn¿t right for her. Many years pasted away and when they meet again it was as if they fell in love all over again. Then Allie had to choose between Noah and her Fiancee This move is romantic because Allie and Noah fell in love by a night to then selves out watching the stop light and dancing in the road. Then when Allie was gone Noah bought the house he wanted and fixed it the way Allie said she wanted it. When Allie moved back to town for a couple days she went to Noah¿s house to visit him because she saw him in the news paper and fell back in love with him and so she dumped her Fiancee so she could marry Noah. Then at the end Noah and Allie die together in the same bed. This movie is a great love story because Noah and Allie have a life time love when there far away from each other. This movie is amazing because the actors in the movie is like it really happening right I front of you. When Allie and Noah is mad they really look mad because, they scream at each other and slap each other and everything a mad couple would do, In he movie when there sad they look like there really upset when they start to tear up and start crying. It¿s just so amazing and realistic get it now. You seriously need to buy The Notebook right away. So get off your lazy butt off the computer and get it now! You will NEVER regret buying this movie! This movie is just wonderful! You will love it and I know that for a fact. You can get it at Wal Mart K mart anywhere! That¿s the great part about it! If you have Netflix or anything like that watch it now!

This movie is both touching and sad. Johnnyme you are intitled to your own opinion but i must say i disagree. This movie is not about adultrey, its about how we make mistakes and how we are not perfect because we are only human. But this woman is a little strange i'll admit. I dont get her. i understand her point of view however....

Ah,the classic movie that everyone has watched or has heard about,So utterly romantic and touching and also so heartbreaking.A beautiful story of two unlikely loves and how they overcame everything,The last part where Noah as an old man reads their story to a dementia stricken Allie and having her finally remember was so sweet but the moment she forgot,it was so heart shattering for Noah and the watchers.I can now see why the notebook was so significant.Nicholas Sparks never disappoints when it comes to real romances.

If you have a dry eye at the end of this movie, you would have to be stone cold. I've seen grown (and young) men cry at this movie (I love a guy who isn't afraid to express his true emotions - a real man). Although the story focuses mostly on the main couple in their youthful years, it is the portion of the movie about the couple in their sunset years that will make your lips quiver and your eyes shed a tear (or more). I think most anyone would like to experience a love like this in their lifetime, a truly passionate and un-dying love. And that KISS...hell yeah, that kiss... watch the movie and you'll know EXACTLY what I'm talking about!

It's a great movie for anybody that's a teenager or up. It was incredibly sad, but it was a movie that you would watch again and again. Rachel McAdams did a wonderful job as Allie. This is one time when the movie is better than the book, so if you read the book and decided not to watch the movie.... bad choice.
