The Notebook is an American romantic drama that melted the hearts of viewers everywhere. The movie is based on Nicholas Sparks’ eponymous novel, and stars Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams.
The plot starts in a modern-day nursing home, where an elderly man reads a love story from his notebook to a female patient that suffers from dementia.
In the story, Noah, a poor young man, falls in love with Allie, an upper-class girl, but her parents don’t approve of their relationship, which breaks the couple apart.
As the years pass, the main characters eventually end up together, and we find out that the two old patients at the beginning of The Notebook are, in fact, Noah and Allie. If you don’t get emotional during the movie or while reading the book, you’ll most certainly cry at the end of the story.
