The Independent Culture

Another Nicholas Sparks romance to swell the morass of tranquillising mush (Message In A Bottle, The Notebook etc) he turns out by the yard. 

A young woman fleeing a crime scene fetches up in an idyllic North Carolina backwater where she rents a cabin and attracts the interest of a hunky widower. Can she help him to find love again? Director Lasse Hallström favours bucolic loveliness better suited to a tampon commercial than a plausible drama.
