Behind every great love is a great story.

A young woman comes to the coastal town of Seabrook, North Carolina in the 1940's to spend the summer with her family. Still in her teens, Allie Hamilton (Rachel McAdams) meets local boy Noah Calhoun (Ryan Gosling) at a Carnival. On the spot, Noah senses that he and Allie are meant to be together. Though she is a wealthy debutante and he a mill worker, over the course of one passionate and carefree summer in the South, the two fall deeply in love.

A great love story, you might cry with it, but it's worth it!! Not only for girls, I'm sure the boys will like it too, clever story and with a twist at the end. If you like drama movies you'll really enjoy it!
