A Walk to Remember (2002)
This is a dramatic film with some romance in it. I’m sure your wife or girlfriend will appreciate seeing this one. The story revolves around two teenagers in Beaufort, North Carolina. Shane West plays Landon Carter who is daring and a bit of a troublemaker while maintaining his popularity. Mandy Moore plays Jamie Sullivan who is timid, studious, and somewhat shy keeping to herself mostly while carrying a secret.
Some of the students pick on her as a daily routine. This movie is based on a novel which was written by Nicholas Sparks. The screenplay was written by Karen Janszen. Adam Shankman directed this, who has done other films like Bedtime Stories (2008).
The character Landon gets in trouble, and has to serve community time such as working in the spring high school play. Only then does he meet up with Jamie who guides him with his acting. Landon is reluctant to give in to the project, and along the way he grows closer to Jamie who is a plain girl and the daughter of a minister. He discovers she has an incredible passion for life he never realized. He seemingly falls in love with her, but doesn’t realize it until later.
There are more appearances in this by: Daryl Hannah playing Cynthia Carter, Peter Coyote as Reverend Sullivan, Lauren German is Belinda, Clayne Crawford is Dean, Al Thompson is Eric, Paz de la Huerta plays Tracie, Jonathan Parks Jordan is Walker, Matt Lutz is Clay Gephardt, David Andrews is Mr. Kelly, David Lee Smith plays Dr. Carter, Xavier Hernandez is Luis, Marisa Miller is Ms. Garber and Paula Jones is Sally.
The tagline for this film was “Love is like the wind. You cannot see it but you can always feel it”. This movie will surely touch some part of your heart after seeing it. The acting was well done, and the film was put together nicely. I will definitely recommend A Walk to Remember (2002).
