QUICK TAKE:
Romantic Drama: The lives of a young couple just falling in love intertwine with an elderly man and his recollections of his one great love, who he met just before World War II.
PLOT:
Sophia (BRITT ROBERTSON) is an accomplished Art major at Wake Forest University in North Carolina. To blow off some mid-semester steam, her fun-loving sorority sister, Marcia (MELISSA BENOIST), convinces her to come to a bull riding competition with her. There, she meets a handsome rider, Luke Collins (SCOTT EASTWOOD), and is instantly smitten.

The relationship has complications right from the get-go, however. Sophia is about to graduate college in two months and has an amazing internship lined up at a major gallery in New York City. Luke, meanwhile, was thrown from a bull a year earlier and wound up in a coma. He rides against the advice of doctors for money to keep his family farm going for his widowed mother, Kate (LOLITA DAVIDOVICH). Even though they are total opposites, Sophia and Luke are drawn to each other because of their differences.

One dark and stormy night, the two are on their way home from a date when they spot a car that has run off the road and crashed. They save the life of an elderly man named Ira (ALAN ALDA in old age, JACK HUSTON in period flashback) along with a box of old photos and love letters he wrote to his now-deceased wife, Ruth (OONA CHAPLIN in flashback) over the decades. Sophia becomes close with Ira by reading him the letters and sharing his memories. In doing so, she starts to see her relationship with Luke in a whole new light.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Older teens, especially those who are dating, may have some interest due to the two attractive leads.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For some sexuality, partial nudity, and some war and sports action.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
