The Notebook

Based Upon: This movie is based upon the novel, "The Notebook", by Nicholas Sparks, who also wrote the novels that Message in a Bottle and A Walk to Remember were based upon. Sparks reportedly based the novel partly upon the experiences of his grandmother. Based on the acclaimed best seller by Nicholas Sparks and directed by Nick Cassavetes ("John Q"), "The Notebook" is a sweeping love story starring Academy Award nominees James Garner, Gena Rowlands and Joan Allen opposite newcomers Ryan Gosling (Murder by Numbers) and Rachel McAdams. As a man (Garner) reads from a faded notebook to the woman (Rowlands) he regularly visits at a nursing home, his words bring to life the story of a young couple (Gosling and McAdams) who are separated by World War II, then passionately reunited 14 years later after their lives have taken different paths. Adapted by Jan Sardi with a screenplay by Jeremy Leven ("Don Juan DeMarco"), "The Notebook" reveals an epic story of love lost and found, of new beginnings and second chances.
