Storyline

When a mysterious young woman named Katie appears in the small North Carolina town of Southport, her sudden arrival raises questions about her past. Beautiful yet self-effacing, Katie seems determined to avoid forming personal ties until a series of events draws her into two reluctant relationships: one with Alex, a widowed store owner with a kind heart and two young children; and another with her plainspoken single neighbor, Jo. Despite her reservations, Katie slowly begins to let down her guard, putting down roots in the close-knit community and becoming increasingly attached to Alex and his family. But even as Katie begins to fall in love, she struggles with the dark secret that still haunts and terrifies her . . . a past that set her on a fearful, shattering journey across the country, to the sheltered oasis of Southport. With Jo's empathic and stubborn support, Katie eventually realizes that she must choose between a life of transient safety and one of riskier rewards . . . and ... Written by Nicholas Sparks

Surprised Me
16 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I did not read the novel, nor am I a fan of Nicholas Sparks, but this is by far the best of his work. I actually felt intrigued by parts of the story, the plot was extremely simple and it worked well for this type of film.

David Lyons was a great casting as seen from his role as General Monroe in Revolution, he is very easy to dislike on film. Each character was very believable in their roles, although I did feel their were some blips in emotional scenes that dampened the realism.

I would definitely recommend this movie as I found it extremely enjoyable.

True Score: 6.7
