Rosie and Alex have been best friends since they were 5, so they couldn't possibly be right for one another...or could they? When it comes to love, life and making the right choices, these two are their own worst enemies.
Life changes in an instant for young Mia Hall after a car accident puts her in a coma. During an out-of-body experience, she must decide whether to wake up and live a life far different than she had imagined. The choice is hers if she can go on.
In a small coastal town, the veterinarian Travis Shaw works with his father Shep and is very close to his beloved sister Steph. Travis is very successful with the women and dates Monica every now and then. When the resident Gabby Holland moves to the next door house, she initially believes he is a pretentious man. But when her boyfriend Ryan MacCarthy, who is fellow doctor in the same hospital where she works, needs to travel to another city, Gabby and Travis have a relationship and fall in love with each other. Out of the blue, Ryan returns and proposes to marry her. Now Gabby has to make a choice between her two loves.Written by

The wooden box that Adrienne made for Paul in "Nights in Rodanthe" is featured when Travis is going through Gabby's things. See more »
At the beginning of the movie, Travis drives his boat along the Intracoastal Waterway and docks at the Dockside restaurant, on the Wilmington side of the channel. He apparently then walks to the hospital, which is on 17th Street, about 10 miles away. See more »
Why do you make it so hard for me to flirt with you?
Because if I made it easy you wouldn't flirt with me anymore.

Veterinarian Travis Shaw (Benjamin Walker) falls in love with his new neighbor and medical student Gabby (Teresa Palmer). They marry, have kids and there is an accident and one of them has to make a life and death Choice. Hey, you did see the title of this, right?
Just like you need - from time to time - a really good, tasty cheeseburger you also need – from time to time- to watch a really good love story to let you know there is more to life than that really good, tasty cheeseburger. (stop already, I'm getting hungry) Having relative newcomers star in this makes everything seem more real than having seasoned actors star because we are not sure what the newcomers are going to do next.
This goes along at a good pace as the relationship builds with good flirty dialogues and really good serious dialogues later on. If truth be told we see that the serious dialogues prove to be the real winners in here. Also, the intensity in Travis' eyes from time to time when he looks at Gabby reminded me of the intensity of Bubba Watson's (pro golfer) eyes as he contemplates his next shot. And it is here we see something more real than was anticipated. And, of course, because Gabby is very pretty, the chemistry between them is spot on. (you falling in love again?)
Notables: It was nice to see Tom Welling as Ryan, the boyfriend before Travis. I hardly recognized him as he had bulked up to such a degree he could now play Superman (he played a young Clark Kent in the TV Smallville series). And Tom Wilkinson as Shep, Travis' doctor father.
This is very enjoyable and yet, we know an accident will happen later on and someone has to make a choice and everything is intensified. Keep a box of Kleenex handy as you are going to need it.
This movie is on par with THE BEST OF ME, by the same author Nicholas Sparks. (9/10)
Violence: Yes, the accident. And Ryan does punch Travis. Sex: Yes, but nothing graphic. Nudity: No. Language: No.
