Director Lasse Hallström and screenwriter Jamie Linden collaborate to adapt author Nicholas Sparks' novel about a young soldier who falls for an idealistic college girl. Savannah Curtis (Amanda Seyfried) was on spring break when she first met John Tyree (Channing Tatum), who was home on temporary leave. For the smitten soldier it was practically love at first sight. Over the course of the next seven years, when each deployment seemed more treacherous than the last, the love letters that Savannah sent to John were one of the only things that kept him going. However, those loving and heartfelt correspondences would ultimately yield consequences that neither the brave soldier nor his one true love could have ever foreseen.~Jason Buchanan

A conversation with Channing Tatum, Amanda Seyfried, and Lasse Hallström
This movie had me at the edge of my seat. I loved the great story line and how dramatic the movie was. I don't want to give anything away for those who have not seen it, but this is a must have to see movie. You will love it.
Lets set it up: I am a Male, just finished my Freshman year in College, and I am 19. I am also a huge movie buff and have seen thousands of films. Ok the movie is a pretty good movie, if you liked The Notebook you would probably like this movie. It is a standard chick flick and a standard Nicholas Sparks story. But neither is a negative factor, it is a happy movie about a young couple falling in love during the summer with the usual Nicholas Sparks twists and turns. You will laugh and cry, and overall enjoy this film. Watch it with your girlfriend/wife and enjoy it, but don't expect anything Oscar worth (come on these are some young actors without a lot of experience.)
