Storyline

Based on the bestselling novel by master storyteller Nicholas Sparks, THE LONGEST RIDE centers on the star-crossed love affair between Luke, a former champion bull rider looking to make a comeback, and Sophia, a college student who is about to embark upon her dream job in New York City's art world. As conflicting paths and ideals test their relationship, Sophia and Luke make an unexpected and fateful connection with Ira, whose memories of his own decades-long romance with his beloved wife deeply inspire the young couple. Spanning generations and two intertwining love stories, THE LONGEST RIDE explores the challenges and infinite rewards of enduring love. Written by 20th Century Fox

Pretty good romance drama
16 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

College student Sophia (Britt Robertson) meets cowboy Luke (Scott Eastwood) in South Carolina where she's going to school. He rides bulls and she's an art student. They meet and fall in love...but she just got an internship in NYC at an art gallery. Will she give him up and go? There's also another love story here set in the 1940s. Ira (Jack Huston) falls in love with Ruth (Oona Chaplin) but the war tears them apart. He survives but has injuries which prevent him from ever having kids. Will they marry and work through this?

It all sounds terrible but it works. The movie doesn't get overly sentimental and each couple is believable and sympathetic. Every romantic cliché in existence is trotted out (there are at least THREE romantic montages) but carried off in an OK manner. It's a little bit too long but I was never bored. It works but the ending is more than a little ridiculous. It seems like they were straining for a happy ending but it worked. And I'll admit I cried more than a few times during the end.

The acting isn't bad. Eastwood and Robertson have zero sexual charisma but they play very well off each other. They're also ridiculously good-looking so they're easy on the eyes. Their sex scenes are handled tastefully (hence the PG-13 rating) with Eastwood showing his muscular chest and baring his butt briefly. Chaplin is also very effective as Ruth. Huston is just so-so as Ira and (even worse) Alan Alda plays him as an old man and he's terrible. Still, all in all, I was entertained by this. I give it a 7.
