(2015) (Britt Robertson, Scott Eastwood) (PG-13)
- 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.
- 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.
