A must see & own movie. 11th book to be adapted to the big screen, plus the title of the book was so right. I'm one of the few people on the planet who is a huge Nicholas Sparks movies, a true fan, I liked this movie & the book. To me, it was worth every page from the book, every minute of reading & watching it. I LOVED IT!!! He never fails to amaze with all his stories and I without a doubt recommend (The Choice) to everyone, it makes me feel grateful for what I have. I love how they show that Travis held on to his faith. It discusses love, faith, trust, and the choices we make in our lives. I would most definitely recommend this movie to a friend, time to get my copy at Best Buy. EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT!
I am a fan! Definitely one of my top 10 go to movies for stay-at-home Fridays. It is not your typical so-serious kind of romance movies. I like happy endings and I also like that there is a third component to this movie. Typically the story line would be, we can't be in love, now we're in love, roll the credits. There were a lot of choices made in this movie but i think the most critical one was the choice made in the final 15 minutes. I like the book better but I do understand that details get lost in the movie adaptation. For good reason... obviously, time is an issue. I don't think I can have my hubby sit with me for more than 2 hours watching dreamy love stories.
It’s a glorious story of new love, that’s sustained and rekindled – all accompanied with the stunning cinematography of North Carolina’s “low-country” and coastal beaches, rivers and marshlands raging in and around Wrightsville Beach with moon rises, coastal sun sets and their beach gazebo and cottage. It can be easily said that nature and the spectacular coastal North Carolina is also a character in this splendid romance that is also filled with comedy and drama.
Nicholas Sparks does it again !! He is one of my favorite authors and I read all of his books and I love to watch the books come to life on the big screen. "The Notebook" one of the best romantic films of all time is truely his best work but this movie has everything. The Nicholas Sparks movies are not "chic flicks" they are really heartfelt stories about love with strong male and female characters . No one writes love quite like Sparks does . I highly recommend this movie .
