BEHIND EVERY GREAT LOVE IS THE STORY BEHIND IT
Features Actors: Ryan Gosling, Rachel McAdams, Joan Allen, James Gardner & Gina Rowlands.
Running Time:124 Min.
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.

Must buy for girlfriend
My girlfriend loves it, great way to get out of watching it when it comes on tv because I had the excuse of "you have it on blu-ray"
