A Hollywood weepie that would have made Frank Capra proud. Garner's Noah tries to jolt Allie's (Rowlands) failing memory by recounting a tale of love from her youth. The story he recounts is set around WWII and is told in flashbacks with Gosling and McAdams both excellent in their roles as young lovers trying to break through class divides. Based on Nicholas Sparks' novel, the film jumps between the two eras, cleverly using memory as the trigger to show how love can conquer all.
