About the Movie
Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough star in this spellbinding romantic drama based on the novel by best-selling author Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook). When a mysterious, beautiful woman named Katie (Hough), moves to Southport, North Carolina, she sparks the interest of the locals, especially Alex (Duhamel), a handsome widower. Although she is attracted to Alex, Katie is reluctant to trust him – that is, until a new friend (Cobie Smulders) convinces her to give Alex a chance. But before long, a dark secret from Katie’s past threatens her happiness in this thrilling romance directed by Lasse Hallström (Dear John).

My Take on the Movie
I went into this film thinking it would be a chick flick, but was surprised to find that in fact it had more than just the romance that I had expected within it. In fact there was some mystery and intrigue thrown in as well which made the movie engaging and fun to watch. It was nice to see Julianne Hough in a different role than I have seen her in thus far and she and the rest of the cast did a great job at developing characters that had depth and that drew you further into the movie itself. The movie has some twists and turns as well that will keep you guessing all the way to the end. All-in-all this was a entertaining movie that I highly recommend!
