The Story Katie escapes from shrewd , short-tempered husband only to land in a gorgeous town Southport, North Carolina surrounded by beautiful locales and serenity. She meets a widower Josh and falls in love with him. Things turns ugly when her husband comes back.
From the director of Hachi , Salmon Fishing in Yemen , Safe Haven is refreshing romantic drama based on Nicholas Spark's novel of same name. The story is very good with very good twist in the end which will completely take you by surprise. Couple of scenes do stand out from the film the scene between Katie and Josh on the row boat , the climax scene , coupled with soothing background score definitely makes the film worth watching . Screenplay is decent. Editing could have been better. Cinematography is splendid grabbing the exotic location of Southport. Performances by Julianne Hough, David Lyons, Josh Duhamel is good with Julianne stealing the limelight.
Overall , if you are longing for some good romantic flick, Safe Haven is the place for you. Good 3/5
