    Synopsis


    The Lucky One
    An Iraq War veteran searches for the woman from a mysterious photo that he credits with saving his life during three tours of duty in this romantic drama adapted from the book by Nicholas Sparks. U.S. Marine sergeant Logan Thibault (Zac Efron) was serving his country overseas when he happened across a discarded photo of a beautiful woman. An inscription on the back read "Keep Safe," yet the photo revealed no clues about either the subject or her whereabouts. Upon returning home to civilian life, Logan conducts his own research and discovers that the woman's name is Beth (Taylor Schilling) and that she cares for dogs at a small-town kennel. Before long, Logan manages to get a job at the kennel, and sets his sights on winning Beth's heart. But it won't be easy because Beth's past experiences have made her wary of relationships. Meanwhile, as Logan works to earn Beth's trust, a dark secret from her past threatens to derail his hope for a happy future together. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Really?!

      Do you ever wonder about the big questions? God, destiny, the greater meaning of life as a whole or if there is one at all? Clearly Nicholas Sparks does. Whether that makes a good story or not is an entirely different question. Sergeant Logan Thibault (played by Zac Efron) is on his third tour in Iraq when he and his fellow soldiers engage in a firefight. Logan (Efron) is spared but not everyone is so fortunate. Then, following the firefight, he sees something on the ground and, as he bends down to pick it up, there’s an explosion which takes the lives of even more of his compatriots. Still, thanks to the picture, he lived. While travelling in an armored vehicle discussing this, another soldier dies and, again, Logan doesn’t. He attributes this to the picture and, more specifically, the woman in it. So, after it becomes clear to Logan and his family that he brought home a good deal more than a photo, he decides it’d be better if he left and sets out, on foot, to find the woman who he considers his guardian angel. With nothing more than the photo and whatever was written on the back, he finds this woman more than one thousand miles away in New Orleans. Her name is Beth Clayton. Beth (played by Taylor Schilling) is divorced, a mother, on sabbatical from her career as an elementary school teacher and running a kennel with her mother Ellie (played by Blythe Danner) who’s recently suffered a stroke. Coincidentally, Logan left a dog with his family before going to war and came to Louisiana with said dog in tow. Also coincidentally, Beth (Schilling) is looking for help and offers the job to Logan immediately once she hears he’s a former Marine. She regrets that once she hears how he made his way to Louisiana but her mother (Danner) tells him he has the job and after that there was nothing to be done. Of the seventeen novels written by Nicholas Sparks, this is the seventh to be adapted for the screen, the sixth I’ve seen, and the only one I’ve seen in the theater. The worst was, without a doubt, 2010’s The Last Song starring Miley Cyrus and Greg Kinnear. The best was The Notebook. As for its predecessors, Message in a Bottle and A Walk to Remember, I’d rank them somewhere in between. Many have commented that Schilling is too old to be playing opposite the former star of the High School Musical series, but as Efron is a mere three years younger than his co-star, I’d say it’s the least significant problem in a drama with many, many others. Others include the Homeric trek undertaken by the main character and the inexplicable manner by which he accomplishes what he set out to. Don’t waste your time. Don’t waste your money. Don’t see this movie.

      Lucky One was a movie that I knew nothing about prior to watching it. I saw it on sale one day, and was looking for a new movie to watch, and being a fan of Love Stories, I picked it up. The movie was very well done, the story kept me hooked from start to finish, and the acting was excellent. The chemistry between the main stars is excellent, and it's definitely a movie I would recommend.

      I got the DVD in the mail and once I opened the packaging the movie came in I saw that the movie cover was damaged a little bit. After paying for The Lucky one on Blu-Ray plus shipping I decided to just return the movie to get my money back.

      This was a great film, about an Iraq War Veteran searching for a woman he has never met, whose pic he carried into battle, which he believes helped to save his life. He finally finds her, and a full scale romance ensues. This is a film worth owning in one's collection of films!

      This DVD arrived in good time. However, the DVD was loose and when I opened the case it fell out. This has happened to me a number of time after ordering from you. Please be more careful when packaging and shipping your order.

      I was not expecting the greatest development of plot or character, but ended up enjoying a movie with my wife that occasioned some discussion regarding our own romantic relationship. Worthwhile doing so!

      Some may find it a bit slow, but I enjoy the way Nicholas Spark weaves a little fate or destiny or God's help or synchronicity into his stories. People working through their stuff with a little help and a happy ending.
