In Beaufort, North Carolina, a prank on a student goes terribly wrong and puts the student in the hospital. Landon Carter, a popular student with no defined plans for the future, is held responsible and forced to participate in after-school community service activities as punishment, which include starring as the lead in the school play. Also participating in these activities is Jamie Sullivan, the reverend's daughter who has great ambitions and nothing in common with Landon. When Landon decides he wants to take his activities seriously, he asks Jamie for help and begins to spend most of his time with her. But he starts to develop strong feelings for her, something he did not expect to do. The two start a relationship, much to the chagrin of Landon's old popular friends and Jamie's strict reverend father. But when a heart-breaking secret becomes known that puts their relationship to the test, it is then that Landon and Jamie realize the true meaning of love and fate. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


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 »


When Landon and Eric are practicing Landon's lines at Landon's house the Azaleas (surrounding them) are in full bloom. Later, when Landon speaks with his mom at their house about Jamie having faith in him (after Jamie told him she loved him), the Azalea blooms on the same Azalea bushes have died - most have fallen off and a few brown blooms remain. Several scenes later, when Belinda comes and apologizes to Landon for the hurtful fliers, again at Landon's house, the same Azaleas (now surrounding Belinda and Landon) are once again in full beautiful bloom. Azaleas are perennials, only blooming once per year for about 2 weeks. See more »

You're my angel
21 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is so indescribable and unique.I have seen it about a million times and I own the DVD,book,posters,and both soundtracks. I am obsessed!In fact,I am watching it right now.Every time I see this movie,without fail,I cry. Yes...I will admit I am a hopeless romantic and I love to watch these types of movies.But...if there is one thing I hate..its teeny-bop per movies like Mean Girls,and I also hate it when people say AWTR is one.This movie is most certainly not a teen movie.It is a movie for everyone..for the older it gives them something to look back on;for the younger,it gives us something to dream of in the future. Partially..I love this movie because I feel like I am Jamie.And I think it is great to watch a movie that makes you cry and smile all at the same time,and yet come out with such a happy feeling. I recommend this movie for everyone.If you haven't seen it,I will personally lend it to you.
