As usual I am left a little disappointed with a movie in comparison to the book however I did enjoy the film hence the 4 stars.
I feel the film omits a lot of the detail which makes the book especially surrounding John's father. I also have to say that the actress playing Savannah didn't really do the role justice & for me personally her character wasn't believeable.
I am sure that if I had not read the book first I would have probably loved the film so please do not be put off by my comments it is worth a watch.
The story of a long distance relationship, trying to make it work without the other person being there. Sometimes being there in spirit just isn't enough, but can those feelings ever truly leave??
It's a fairly basic story, a summer romance followed by separation and problems leading from there. The story is basic and stays basic, it doesn't really delve deep to the level it could've. There's a few romantic and emotional scenes but not enough to make you reach for the tissues.
Overall: It's good for a single watch but I don't think it's a classic. It's a sweet story but not a tear jerker, not a heart cruncher, just nice.
