Movie Summary

Director:
Scott Hicks
Released:
2012
Rating:
PG-13
Returning from his third tour of duty in Iraq, U.S. Marine Sergeant Logan Thibault (Zac Efron -- 17 Again, New Year's Eve) credits his survival to carrying a photograph of a woman he's never met (Taylor Schilling). Seeking her out in North Carolina, he shows up at her door and takes a job at her family-run kennel. Despite her initial mistrust and hesitation, a romance soon develops between them, giving Logan hope that she might become more than his good luck charm. Based on the bestselling book by Nicholas Sparks (A Walk to Remember), and directed by Oscar nominee Scott Hicks (No Reservations, Shine, Snow Falling on Cedars), this romantic drama spins a timeless tale of love and destiny.
