Fall in love all over again with The Notebook, an aching tale of romance adapted from the best-selling Nicholas Sparks novel and the next entry in Arvida Book Co.'s Movies 'N' Books X the Frida series!
In the summer of 1940, country boy Noah Calhoun (Ryan Gosling) meets seventeen-year-old heiress Allie Hamilton (Rachel McAdams) at a carnival in Seabrook Island, South Carolina, changing both of their lives forever. At first, the two spar wits, rebuffing the others' advances until they realize they're falling in love. Allie's controlling parents forbid her from seeing the irascible Noah, who begins writing letters to Allie every day. A brewing global conflict further separates the couple, who get catapulted across space and time in all directions. Will the lovers ever reunite? Can love last forever?
Supported by stellar performances from Gena Rowlands, James Marsden, and Sam Shepard, The Notebook is a profoundly affecting rumination on love, relationships, and the powers of memory.
