‘Nights in Rodanthe’ (2009) PG Rating
Based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks, this film is unapologetically sentimental, and enjoyable completely on its own terms; a small gem of an escape, complete with storm-tossed coastline. Diane Lane stars as Adrienne, a wronged wife whose husband (Christopher Meloni) begs for another chance. She goes to clear her head at a remote North Carolina inn, where the sole occupant is Paul, a doctor, played by Richard Gere, who is battling his own demons. Gere and Lane both give superb performances as people of a certain age, who haven’t yet given up on love. The cinematography is stunning too: the foamy seas, desolate sand dunes and bleached skies adding to the feelings of loneliness and desolation. This is a beautifully told love story; heartbreaking and captivating.
