This big-screen adaption of the acclaimed Nicholas Sparks novel shows that when it comes to love, it’s never too late for a second chance.

Adrienne (Diane Lane) is heartbroken and attempting to move on after learning of her husband’s infidelity.  Seeking refuge at her friend’s remote inn on the Outer Banks, an approaching storm forces her into solitude with Paul, who is also haunted by the events of his past.  Once together, the two turn to each other in their time of need and discover that romance can be found in the most unexpected of places.

I see Nights In Rodanthe as being a classic. Not in the Gone with the Wind sense, but a classic nevertheless. This heartwrenching story shows that romance is just not for the young.  Richard and Diane’s characters share some intense emotional moments by opening up to each other on a deep level. As a person who not only enjoys reading but writes women’s fiction, the movie had all of the elements to hold your attention and get you emotionally invested in the characters.

There were a few scenes that seemed to drag on, but it didn’t take away from the movie. Get ready to grab your tissue. I won’t spoil it for you, but I will say that I doubt if you can watch this movie and not shed a tear.  

If you like a good romance story, Nights In Rodanthe is a movie you should have in your collection.
