As teenagers, Allie (Rachel McAdams) and Noah (Ryan Gosling) begin a whirlwind courtship that soon blossoms into tender intimacy. The young couple is quickly separated by Allie's upper-class parents who insist that Noah isn't right for her. Several years pass and, when they meet again, their passion is rekindled, forcing Allie to choose between her soulmate and class order. This beautiful tale has a particularly special meaning to an older gentleman (James Garner) who regularly reads the timeless love story to his aging companion (Gena Rowlands). Based on the best-selling novel by Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook is at once heartwarming and heartbreaking and will capture you in its sweeping and emotional force.

Behind Every Great Love is a Great Story
The Notebook tells the tale of local mill worker, Noah Calhoun, and vacationing rich girl, Allie Hamilton. The pair meet one summer in South Carolina and fall desperately in love. Allie’s parents don’t approve of the relationship because of the couple’s social differences, and they work to separate the two. When Noah leaves to serve in World War II it seems to mark the end of the love affair, and eventually Allie becomes involved with another man. But when Noah returns to the small town of Seabrook years later, on the eve of Allie's marriage, it soon becomes clear that their romance is anything but over.
Gena Rowlands, who plays the elderly Allie Hamilton, is director Nick Cassavetes’ mother.
