      Dear John is a beautiful and moving love story based on the novel by Nicholas Sparks. It captures the new love between Savannah (Amanda Seyfried) and John (Tatum Channing) with playful tenderness as well as searing emotional intensity associated with first love. Watching their first kiss in the rain is like reliving your first moments with your first. Heartwarming scenes are also heightened by the good chemistry between Amanda Seyfried and Tatum Channing.As actors, you believe that they are in

      love and you root for them as they navigate their love through letters and unfortunate situations like 9/11.

      I didn’t watch this movie in a theater because I thought it was one those usual mediocre love stories Hollywood likes to churn out but apparently I was wrong. This movie is more than just a love story. It also touches other issues you wouldn’t expect. I have watched the movie in video three times and a certain poignant scene always gets to ...


      • me each time, the hospital scene with John and his Dad. You see, this movie is also a story about a father and a son and the impact of autism in their life. Yes, you read right, autism, a disorder that has hit many families and has been living courageously with everyday. Moreover, Dear John is also a story about the struggles a military man and his loved ones go through each time he is sent to war.

        Overall, the movie

        retained the special elements of the book by Nicholas Sparks. It’s there, you feel the love and the pain. You realize that love entails sacrifices and the best of loves doesn’t always turn out the way you expect it to. You begin to understand that sometimes loving someone means letting go and loving them means wanting the best for them, wanting them to be happy even if you’re not together. It’s a very touching movie with a way better ending than the book.
