I finally got around to watching The Notebook and let me tell you. I have watched a lot of sad movies, where dogs die, and people die and I have never once cried to a movie. EVER! I’ve been close to crying, but I have never ever shed a tear to a movie. So as a rational person that doesn’t cry to movies, I started The Notebook at 10:30 pm and laid in bed ready to be unfazed. Little did I know im softer than I thought. Towards the ended of the movie I ended up crying. I’m embarrassed to say but it was actually a good movie, it was a little unrealistic but it was what every girl dreams of in a guy.
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 interim, Allie becomes involved with another man (James Marsden). But when Noah returns to their small town years later, on the cusp of Allie’s marriage, it soon becomes clear that their romance is anything but over.
I really like how the movie jumps back and fourth to past and current, it makes it much sweeter in the end, but no spoilers from me! The movie really does put you in those feels though. And after this emotional roller coaster I give this movie 1 Large Tub of Ice Cream.
