REVIEW:
I haven't read the book.
I had no idea I would need tissues for the movie. If I read the book, I would have known.
This film is very reminiscent of The Notebook, which I absolutely loved!
The story went between the present day, and a couple who are new to each other. That early not-sure-but-think-I'm-in-love phase. Then it flipped to Alan Alda's part in the movie where he would read his letters or tell stories from the past, remembering his love affair with his wife. Really, those were the best bits of the movie.
It was even more special watching the movie with my husband. Since we are newlyweds, it was super romantic, and that is probably why I cried so much. Such beautiful scenes.
Even the hubby said it was good and cute. That's when you know it is a good one, when he likes it.
This movie is Date Night Approved!  :-)

4/5

    1. He is Clint's son. You can see it in his eyes. Very handsome.
