This adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks novelpairing Richard Gere and Diane Lane for the third timewill play with your emotions. Lane co-stars as Adrienne, an innkeeper at a rickety old shack inches from the ocean who is trying to escape her troubled life. She meets Dr. Flanner (Gere) when he stays at the inn to confront his troubled life. The relationship between the two quickly explodes into a powerful love, convincingly portrayed thanks to the actors exceptional performances and intense chemistry. However, this is all destroyed by the hokey dialogue, countless contrivances, an unrealistic hurricane and an incredibly disappointing ending.
