The Notebook (2004)




Nick Cassavetes



A poor and passionate young man falls in love with a rich young woman and gives her a sense of freedom. They soon are separated by their social differences.




A modern day Romeo and Juliet love story with a few twists and turns. Being a hopeless romantic I can always appreciate a good love story. In the notebook you get two for one. The Notebook is the stories of an old couple sharing their last few years together in a retirement home. Stricken with Alzheimer’s, the woman is forgetful and is losing the memory of who she is. A man who reads to her reads a forbidden love story, the story is her story, his story, and their story. The movie had a great use of flashbacks to tell a love story with a realistic happy ending.


All around it is well-done, great acting and a five out of five pops on the movies to watch with your girl scale. 


P.S. This is for all of the burnt popcorn fans in the house!
