Based on the celebrated novel by Nicholas Sparks, THE NOTEBOOK tells the story of a young couple who overcome insurmountable odds to experience the true power of love. In a modern-day nursing home, a kindhearted man (James Garner) reads a tender story to another patient (Gena Rowlands). The story begins during one glorious summer in small-town South Carolina in the early 1940s. Noah Calhoun (Ryan Gosling) is a blue-collar log-mill worker who courts the wealthy and sheltered Allie Nelson (Rachel McAdams). Before long, sparks are flying and the pair is in love. But eventually Allie's snobby parents force their separation, and when World War II arrives, Noah heads overseas to serve his country. In the meantime, Allie becomes a nurse and falls for another man (James Marsden), to Noah's dismay. Nonetheless, he buys and fixes up the mansion he promised Allie he would one day restore, and when he and Allie reunite just before her wedding, their love blossoms once again. Decades later, in the nursing home, the story reaches its heartfelt conclusion. Directed with extreme sensitivity by Nick Cassavetes (son of costar Gena Rowlands), THE NOTEBOOK is aided immensely by the naturalistic performances of Gosling and McAdams, whose chemistry is palpable.
Based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks, this love story stars James Garner and Gena Rowlands. Garner begins to read to Gena from a notebook containing a love story of two teenagers, Noah and Allie, which begins in the summer of 1940 in the resort town of Seabrook, North Carolina. Noah Calhoun (Ryan Gosling) sees Allie Hamilton (Rachel McAdams) at the carnival and gets a date with her. Allie is from a wealthy family and Noah is a lumber yard worker. During that glorious summer, they fall madly in love. Allie's parents disapprove and leave Seabrook. Noah writes Allie for an entire year, with no reply. Noah joins the army when World War II begins. After the war, Noah returns to Seabrook, buys an old run-down house by the seashore, and begins to fulfill a lifelong dream by restoring it. In the meantime, Allie has gotten engaged to Lon Hammond (James Marsden), a wealthy cotton broker. While Allie is having her wedding gown fitting, she sees a picture of Noah and his home in the paper. Allie returns to Seabrook to see Noah before her wedding. Douglas Young (the-movie-guy)

For Allie (Rachel McAdams) and Noah (Ryan Gosling), their love story is one fraught with heartache, passion, time, and destiny. But before we can get to that, flash forward decades to an older gentleman named Duke (James Garner) visits an elderly woman (Gina Rowlands) suffering from Alzheimer's in a nursing home. In the midst of her debilitating disease, he begins to read her a story, the story of Allie and Noah and how they met, fell in love, and discovered all the complications that go along with romance.
Noah is a mill worker still living with his father (playwright Sam Shepard) in a rundown house, while Allie comes from a long line of wealth and deals with her snobbish mother (Joan Allen, The Contender) who thinks that Noah isn't worthy of her status. When the summer comes to an end, Noah and Allie are forced to go their separate ways, yet never leaving each other's thoughts. Seven years later finds Allie engaged to a wealthy southern socialite (James Marsden) and Noah putting the finishing touches on a plantation farmhouse that he promised Allie he'd restore for her during their summer of love. Through a series of chance encounters, Allie and Noah meet once more and find the spark of their previous romance is still very much alive. This forces Allie to make a decision that will alter both her and Noah's lives…forever.
