Storyline

Adrienne Willis, a woman with her life in chaos, retreats to the tiny coastal town of Rodanthe, in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, to tend to a friend's inn for the weekend. Here she hopes to find the tranquility she so desperately needs to rethink the conflicts surrounding her -- a wayward husband who has asked to come home, and a teen-aged daughter who resents her every decision. Almost as soon as Adrienne gets to Rodanthe, a major storm is forecast and a guest named Dr. Paul Flanner arrive. The only guest at the inn, Flanner is not on a weekend escape but rather is there to face his own crisis of conscience. Now, with the storm closing in, the two turn to each other for comfort and, in one magical weekend, set in motion a life-changing romance that will resonate throughout the rest of their lives.

Trivia

As of 2013 the house has been renamed "The Inn at Rodanthe" and completely refurbished to more closely resemble the interior movie scenes which were filmed elsewhere in North Carolina. Sun Realty manages the property and has extensive photographs of the interior, particularly the blue bedroom Richard Gere's character stays in while visiting. The unique shutter doors into the kitchen have also been recreated as have the various shutters, porches, and exterior details. See more »

Goofs

In the beginning of the film, when Dr. Paul Flanner is driving to Rodanthe, there is a short scene in which he's driving on US-17 south of Myrtle Beach, SC. (The store with the big sharks mouth entrance) This is nowhere near his supposed driving route. The store with the giant shark is actually the Shark Attack Souvenir and Gift Shop at 1295 NC Highway 210, Sneads Ferry, NC. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Paul Flanner: What keeps you safe?
Adrienne Willis: Well, you fall in love with someone, you know... and you make a family... and you become what you think you're supposed to be. And you change and you give up certain things. Then they look at what you've got left and you wish you... I don't know, you just think maybe you shouldn't have.
Dr. Paul Flanner: Don't.
Dr. Paul Flanner: Just don't do it anymore.
Adrienne Willis: ...Huh.

User Reviews

Not so bad as some have suggested
18 October 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Terrible title for a movie that is not nearly as terrible as some critics have suggested. At a time when there are so many romantic comedies aimed at young viewers, it's no bad thing to have the occasional romantic story that eschews humour and involves characters in middle age - think something along the lines of "Bridges Of Madison County" (both are based on novels).

The (goodlooking) stars are Richard Gere, as a doctor seeking to establish a new relationship with his estranged son in Latin America, and Diane Lane, a mother in a deeply unhappy marriage considering whether to abandon it. The (unusual) setting is the Outer Banks of North Carolina at a time of year when hurricanes are threatened. At times, it's a little silly and sentimental but still worth an evening in front of the television if not a visit to the cinema.
