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...

Goofs

In the opening sequence Dr. Paul Flanner is shown driving north on Route 12, apparently toward Rodanthe from Raleigh. (The ocean is to his right.) And he's seen making a ferry crossing, later discussed in the dialogue, which would have been the Ocracoke-Hatteras Island ferry, south of Rodanthe. But in the same early sequence, he's seen crossing the Herbert C. Bonner bridge at Oregon Inlet, which is actually north of Rodanthe, connecting Bodie Island and Hatteras Island. In fact, the driving route between Raleigh and Rodanthe would almost certainly not include any ferry crossings, which are considerably further south than the Raleigh-Rodanthe route, and would approach Rodanthe from the north.

Quotes

Dr. Paul Flanner: We all make choices, Adrienne. You chose that life, you chose that man. Do you even remember who you really are anymore?
Adrienne Willis: Just stop it.

Very Devastating!!!
4 October 2008 | by See all my reviews

I had been counting down the months to see this movie because this is my FAVORITE Nicholas Sparks book. I was so disappointed in this movie and I get very upset everyday I think about it. Please read the book it is WONDERFUL and in no way does the movie come anywhere close to touching you the way the book does. What upsets me the most is that this could have been the best romantic film since The Notebook but it just wasn't there. Diane Lane and Richard Gere are wonderful and I LOVE them in everything but the movie just wasn't there. So don't waste your time at the movies PLEASE read the book, you will not be disappointed in the book at all!
