      “Tearjerker. ” That’s how many people describe the movie adaptation of the popular novel by Nicholas Sparks, featuring pop princess Mandy Moore and TV cutie Shane West.

      But unlike the novel version that is set in the 1950’s, the movie version was set in a more recent time of 1998, probably for more people to relate to the story, especially the young fans of the two stars.

      But the essential aspects of the story remained, particularly the character profile of the lead


      roles: Landon Carter (Shane West) being the easy-going guy, and Jamie Sullivan (Mandy Moore) is the almost-fragile and ‘heavenly’ minister’s daughter.

      It follows the story of these two young people as they take their way in love despite their different worlds.

      As with other movie tie-ins, some aspects of the plot is added and removed, such as that of the school play and Jamie being a stargazer.

      Nevertheless, the features that the readers enjoyed in the novel came to life in ...


      • the movie, specially the dramatic parts toward the end of the story.

        There are some moments that the acting of the lead stars is somewhat ‘bland’.

        But nevertheless, the way they brought their roles in life is way amazing and believable.

        It also helps that the ‘quiet’ moments in the movie spoke a lot about them, that it also set the sentimental and romantic mood of the story.

        But perhaps the character that emphasized their differences and the whole situation as

        well would probably Jamie’s father Minister Hegbert Sullivan, played by Peter Coyote, Jr.

        Aside from his occasional disapproval towards Landon and his protectiveness to his daughter, he also had this transition from the old-fashioned to the more open-minded minister.

        Some of the highlights of the movie include the school play where Landon and Jamie were together, the hospital scene and the wedding scene.

        I highly recommend the movie for the hopeless romantics and for those who want to contemplate on their lives with some ‘crying’ times.
