The Notebook showcases true love

Sheri Donaldson

The Notebook is a romantic movie enlightened with comedy and sentimental scenes. The movie was produced in 2004 and shows a love story between the same couple at two different parts in their life. We get to experience the love they share as a young couple and then how that transforms into love that has lasted through the years. 

In 1940s South Carolina, mill worker Noah Calhoun (Ryan Gosling) and rich girl Allie (Rachel McAdams) are desperately in love. But her parents don’t approve. When Noah goes off to serve in World War II, it seems to mark the end of their love affair. In the meantime, Allie becomes involved with another man (James Marsden). But when Noah returns to their small town years later, as Allie’s marriage draws near, it soon becomes clear that their romance is anything but over.

Director Nick Cassavetes gives viewers a variety of drama, comedy and romance all wrapped up into one amazing story line.

The movie may be a decade old, but it’s a must-see for anyone who likes a good romance. It’s available full length on YouTube for $2.99.
