The Notebook

This is one of my favorite movies and the second time we've seen it. It is well written and directed and features James Garner's best performance anywhere I've seen him.

I last saw Rachel McAdams in the Family Stone, also an excellent film. She and James Garner totally make this film. Ryan Gosling also appeared in Remember the Titans although I don't remember him in that film.
Its difficult to tell much about his story without giving it away. It has all the makings of a classic romance: amazing scenery, a war, promises kept against all odds, a good breakup and of course a reunion.

The Notebook is not exactly unpredictable in it's plot however the editing is very tight and you never lose interest in the story.
