The Notebook Movie Review

Guest Author - Ireca Sims

Written by Nicolas Sparks, "The Notebook" is a passionate love story expressed by a woman who is suffering from Alzheimer disease.

There is a poetic vibe throughout the movie. This feeling is portrayed from the first scene. The sun is setting. As it hits the beautiful crisp lake, it gives an unbelievable reflection as the birds fly away in the distance.

Noah (James Garner) is an old man who lives in a nursing home. He reads to Allie (Gena Rowland) everyday; the love of his life, who also resides there. The book is a diary -- a story of their love. Since she suffers from Alzheimer’s, he reads in hopes of recharging her memory.

When he reads the book, the movie takes us back to the time when they were young – when they first met. Young Noah (Ryan Gosling) eyes light up when he sees Allie (Rachel McAdams). He can’t take his off of her. He approaches her but gets rejected. Does this stop him?

Well, he jumps on the Ferris wheel between her and a guy, introducing himself. He hounds her even further by dangling from the bar in mid-air, telling her he won’t get down until she says she will go out with him. Terrified, Allie agrees.

When he sees her walking on the street the next day, he tells her he is drawn to her. There is a heartfelt genuineness in his comment. I feel for him as I watch him confess his feelings to someone he just met.

After their first date, they are “inseparable.” Although they come from two different worlds, their love is sincere. Unfortunately, Allie’s family doesn’t approve of their relationship. Her mom calls Noah “trash.” Her dad doesn’t think he is a good match either. Sadly, they hold the ridiculous view that since he is not rich or wealthy, he is not good enough for their daughter.

Eventually, they move on with their lives. Allie meets a successful man, Lon Hammond (James Marsden). Meanwhile, Noah dates a war widow. Despite Allie and Noah’s separation, there is still an obvious connection.

I love watching this movie because the love is so strong and moving. It’s eternal and deep. There is no one else except Noah and Allie. Although they knew they would experience hardships, they wanted to be together.

It also has some amazing lines, the kind you would want to write down and read again and again. The kind that will have you clutching your chest in awe.

This story captures the essence of eternal love. It is endearing, touching, heartbreaking, and so much more. A love like theirs is what many of us strive for – forever love.

I was not paid to endorse this movie in any way. I borrowed this movie from my personal movie collection. The views and opinions that are expressed are my own.
