She didn't belong. She was misunderstood. And she would change him forever.
It’s the middle of the 90’s in North Carolina, and Landon Carter is a senior at Beaufort High. He hangs out with the popular gang, and has a girlfriend or two. But when a prank goes terribly wrong, he gets punished by joining the tutor program and the drama club. He quickly realizes that he’s way over his head, so he is forced to ask the quiet, awkward, uncool, but yet the beautiful ministers daughter, Jaime Sullivan for help. «But you have to promise you won’t fall in love with me,» she says.
During the rehearsal of the school play, Jaime and Landon get closer and closer, and the night of the play, when Jaime sings the song “Only Hope”, he realizes that he’s madly in love with her. He doesn’t know that Jaime is the one to change his life. She has faith in him, and makes him a better person. But Jaime carries a major secret. How long can she keep it from him?
“A Walk To Remember”, based on the novel of Nicholas Sparks, is a beautiful lovestory filled with happiness, sorrow, tears and laughter. Mandy Moore (Jaime) and Shane West (Landon) are extraordinary talented, and playes their parts wonderfully. Their chemistry in this movie is part of what makes it a movie you have to see. Some may think that it’s a typical cliché, another teenage movie, but it’s not, and you will definetely not have a dry eye after seeing it.
The movie moved me, and while watching it, I felt like dragged into the screen. I think teenagers would especially like this movie, because they may recognize the situations and the feelings around them. The story shows that there's more to attraction than what meets the eye. It shows how you can turn something bad into good, and make the most out of your life, despite the difficulties that meets you along the way. It’s also about opening up to people and letting yourself become something you never imagined. But most of all, it’s about miracles. And true love is a miracle that is rare and hard to let go of.
