"I blame you for thinking you knew what was best for me when it was you who was best for me."
A full trailer has been released for the upcoming romantic drama The Best of Me, which stars James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan. The movie is based on a book written by Nicholas Sparks, who is also the author of books such as The Notebook and A Walk to Remember, both of which were adapted into great movies.
I'm normally not a romantic movie kind of guy, but these films that come from the novels Sparks writes kind of hit a chord with me. The Notebook, is easily one of my favorite romantic films. That being said, I'm kind of looking forward to this new film. Hey… it's ok for movie geeks to like a wide variety of movies! The only thing that weirds me out about this movie is that the younger version of Marsden's character looks nothing like him. In fact, he actually looks older.
The Best of Me tells the story of Dawson and Amanda, two former high school sweethearts who find themselves reunited after 20 years apart, when they return to their small town for the funeral of a beloved friend. Their bittersweet reunion reignites the love they've never forgotten, but soon they discover the forces that drove them apart twenty years ago live on, posing even more serious threats today. Spanning decades, this epic love story captures the enduring power of our first true love, and the wrenching choices we face when confronted with elusive second chances.
The movie comes out on October 17th.
