Synopsis


The Longest Ride
Nicholas Sparks' best-selling novel comes to the big screen in this romantic drama from director George Tillman Jr.. The plot centers on the star-crossed love affair between a retired bull rider who wants to get back in the saddle, and an art student preparing to seek her fortune in New York City. As their relationship is put to the ultimate test, the wisdom of an aging man who recalls his lost love serves as a source of great inspiration. Scott Eastwood, Britt Robertson, Jack Huston, and Alan Alda star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Scott Eastwood, son of Clint, is a great leading male actor, and Britt Robertson is a great leading female. Both of the actors are in their 20s and share a chemistry with each other which is far more appealing than most romantic movies involving young couples. In this movie, she wants to go into art, particularly contemporary art, and he has a career as a rodeo performer. They fall in love slowly enough that it’s believable and meaningful, rather than all of a sudden like so many movies do.I really enjoy the way their relationship develops. They become influenced by the life story of a man played by Alan Alda, who learned the meaning of sacrificial love and imparts this experiential wisdom to them. The parallels between Alda’s character’s story and their story give the movie a meaningful connection between past and present. It is also a rewarding experience when they are both willing to give up selfishness for each other in the . Well-written, well-edited, well-acted, and stimulating, this movie is enjoyable.

    I have read all his books and I am always excited when a new one is going to be released. Even though, you sort of know what going to happen in a Nicholas Sparks book, I still love them. The Longest Ride was no exception. It intertwines a story about two couples, one old, and one young and does a really good job of connecting them together at the end. I don't want to give too many details but anyone who loves Nicholas Sparks or just wants to read a cute love story should read this, you won't be disappointed. Not to be corny, but, I think what I love most about Nicholas Sparks books is that the guy in the story always really, truly, and without reservation loves the girl and would do anything for her.

    We weren't sure about this movie, as we hadn't heard anything about it, but its trailer on another rental looked interesting. We rented it and enjoyed it so much that we immediately purchased it. The great price discount compared to other on-line retailers was also a major plus. The cast was a real surprise. All actors performed their roles perfectly. No one overacted but all conveyed the emotional content of the story in a totally believable manner. The ending was a happy surprise and we would consider this one of those "feel good" movies that we'll pull out of our library from time to time, when we're not looking for mega-action.

    LONGEST RIDE IS FOR LOVERS

    Lovers of Nicholas Sparks will probably get exactly what they're expecting in this film, but that's part and parcel of what will probably be problematic for everyone else. The Longest Ride revisits so many (too many) Sparksian tropes that it fails to develop an identity of its own. Alda and Chaplin take the acting honors here (though Lolita Davidovich does quite well in an underwritten role as Luke's mom). The film is certainly scenic, but the story would have been more focused and effective had it centered solely on the more touching story of Ira and Ruth. Technical merits are first rate for those considering a purchase.

    I really wanted to like this movie. I didn't like the leading female actress but I did like Scott Eastwood. I liked the back romance story with Alan Alda. Although I don't like Alda that much, I enjoyed his character. I found it strange that she was reading letters that told the story of Alda's romance. Who writes letters to their loved ones explaining how they meet, etc.? I wasn't crazy about the ending but did like the part right before the ending. They should have ended it there instead of continuing. If I had rented this movie, I would have not bought it.

    My Favorite Nicholas Sparks Movie

    If you have liked any other Nicholas Sparks movie, you will love this one. I have watched it several times, and would watch it several more times. Two people from opposite sides of the social spectrum fall in love and almost don't make it, then get everything they could have ever imagined. It's a heart throbbing climax into a perfect finish. You will never be sorry you bought it.

    Good movie but for one scene

    I may have given this movie a higher score but the shower scene was not necessary to the plot and makes it so that I don't want to watch the movie with company, especially children. I don't know why directors and producers feel it is necessary to put nudity into a film that is good enough to stand on it's own merit. I could recommend this movie to a friend, but only if I warned them about the shower scene, especially if they have young/er children.

    This is one of those films that starts off as one of your typical romance pieces but, when it's over, you have such a nice warm feeling that you just know you're going to watch it again in the future when you want something that will give you that feeling. Something we all need from time to time. It's what's become know as a feel good movie. While not everyone is into that, many of us are and for those who like something to warm up an evening, I highly recommend this movie.
