Two times, we see Natalie in her room, lying on her bed in her tennis outfit. The first time was right after she loses her match. The second time is after she gets out of her parents' car. The second time, however, everything is in the exact same place as it was during the first scene. See more »
Wake up, Natalie. Don't you see what happened here? You had a beautiful life, and I had shit. I hated your guts. I wanted to take you down, I wanted to make you as miserable as I am, and that is exactly what I did. Now, how's that for a goodbye?
Face it, Anderson, I screwed you. I screwed you big time.
So you screwed me. So what? Me? I made love to you.

This movie is captivating. The characters believable (by this I mean their whole personality doesn't change by the end) and the atmosphere is believable.
Yes, the story line may be a bit of a cliché and is well known to most, but the way it is told is different than other movies that seem to have no grip on reality, and because of this it makes it heart wrenching, beautiful and leaves you with a longing to see it all over again and a feeling of quietness that is only broken when someone arouses you from your daydream with a request to do the dishes, or the laundry, or the cat litter. Maybe that's just me?
Anyway, a must see movie. Great acting by all involved, great dialogue and wonderful directing. The best teen romance that has ever been filmed, a gem in a sea of tinted glass.
