Nights in Rodanthe is a 2008 drama, directed by George C. Wolfe, which tells the story of two-middle aged adults who find unexpected love while dealing with serious personal issues. The lead character, Paul (Richard Gere), is a successful doctor who begins the film attempting to both reconcile with his son (James Franco) and facing his own demons after a botched surgery has left a Rodanthe patient on the verge of suing him. In order to help collect his thoughts, he checks into a North Carolina bed-and-breakfast where he meets an attractive woman named Adrienne (Diane Lane). Adrienne has come to Rodanthe for the weekend to get away from issues of her own. Just before she making the trip down, Adrienne is seen in an argument with her husband whom she suspects of cheating and is on the verge of leaving the marriage. The two are the only two guests for the weekend and after sharing stories over dinner, begin to develop an attraction. That attraction soon turns into a passionate affair that helps the two forget about their problems for a brief period. As both leave the inn, they promise to continue to write letters of love and support to each other until they are able to return to each other. Unfortunately, an unspeakable tragedy afterwards puts those hopes in grave danger.
