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

According to Nicholas Sparks (who wrote the book on which this movie was based), the two lead characters were, in part, created after real-life happenings about the way he and his wife Cathy met and started their relationship in a small coastal town. 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

Adrienne Willis: I know you've only ever known your father and me. And I love Jack, because he is your father. But there's another kind of love, Amanda. One that gives you the courage to be better than you are, not less than you are. One that makes you feel that anything is possible. I want you to know that you could have that. I want you to hold out for it.

And who said romance is over???
5 October 2008 | by screenwriter-14See all my reviews

NIGHTS IN RODANTHE brings back to the screen two talented actors in Diane Lane and Richard Gere in a simply beautiful story of a man and a woman hungry for something more in their lives than they have at present. The chemistry between Lane and Gere is magical from the first scene in the film to their last embrace. The locations, beauty of their attraction for one another when it unfolds when they first meet, and the story that follows, and as they begin to know each other with the attraction they feel towards each other is real, is romance that is projected to an audience with tender care. James Franco in another micro role is just the right casting, and the elegance of Lane in combination with the beach house, is a true Fall 2008 film to remember forever, as was THE NOTEBOOK.
