Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams in The Notebook


The Notebook
(2004)

Directed by Nick Cassavetes (son of the inimitable John Cassavetes) and starring Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams, The Notebook offers all the components of an epic love story: beautiful young protagonists are madly in love but kept apart by social differences; steamy love scenes; and tear-jerking tragedy. Based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks, the story is set in the 1940s yet told in present time by an elderly man (James Garner) to a fellow nursing home patient (Gena Rowlands, the director’s mother).
