Brief Description: A young woman with a mysterious past lands in Southport, North Carolina where her bond with a widower forces her to confront the dark secret that haunts her.
I've been a fan of Josh Duhamel since he stumbled onto "All My Children" as Leo du Pres (Vanessa's son) on November 22, 1999. I've continued to watch him in the TV show "Las Vegas" and movies such as "Win a Date With Tad Hamilton" and "Transformers". I also watched Julianne Hough in "Dancing With The Stars" and in the movie "Rock of Ages". Together they are amazing in this movie based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks.
The film is set in North Carolina and the Cinematography is beautiful, the casting is wonderful, and all the actors, including the two children, do a great job.
I'll warn you that I cried at the end of this movie, but I still loved it!
