The movie was shot in North Carolina; many of the sets were from the TV show Dawson's Creek (1998), particularly the school, the hospital and Landon's home. See more »
After the school play Landon is talking to his father. During the last shot of Landon we see a young man walk behind him in a green button up shirt with a white shirt underneath. In the next shot, the same man walking down the stairs toward them again. See more »
This movie doesn't have an original plot, but it is good because of the 2 leads give wonderful performances. Mandy Moore is especially good as the straight-laced preacher's daughter. And I liked how they showed the transformation of Shane West's character. It was very believable. Of course, the ending won't leave you dried-eyed. It's sad, but we get to witness a sort-of "miracle" as the film puts it of how a wayward teen turns his life around. The music was great too.
FINAL VERDICT: I definitely recommend this. It isn't just some teen movie. The film has depth and the acting is much better than you would expect.
