Movie Review - The Notebook
Wonderful, Romantic and Touching
This has to be the most emotionally beautiful movie of the year.
James Garner and Gena Rowlands are outstanding as the romatic leads in their elderly years dealing with the wife's senile dementia. Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams are perfect playing the romantic couple in their younger years, as they first meet and are torn apart.
I went through nearly an entire travel-sized package of tissues during this movie. I just cried and cried. It is wonderfully romantic and touching. Just the story of Garner's character dealing with his wife's illness is moving enough. But then add in the story of their life together, and it is brilliant.
Everything in this movie is high quality - the acting, direction and script. I would give it ten stars if the rating here went that high. A definate "must see".
