Film: Dear John (2010)4.5.10
So yesterday was another emotional experience at the cinema. For my sister's birthday, we decided to go to the cinema and see Dear John. From everyone's reviews, opinions, etc. of the film, I had already attempted to prepare myself for major spillage of tears and all that jazz. Unlike with Remember Me, which I was NOT prepared for haha!
Even so, this film was pretty amazing, and brought about a lot of tears! I hadn't read the book beforehand (I really should start doing that, I always prefer books to films!) so I wasn't sure what to expect from the storyline, but it was executed really well on film, cutting from location to location. It was so cute and romantic as well! Oh and I spent about 99.9% of the film feeling extremely jealous of Amanda Seyfried's beautifully curled hair.
The story basically tells of John and Savannah, a couple who fall in love by chance over two weeks, until John is drafted back to the army. They write adorable letters to each other over twelve months, but then things go wrong. I can't actually even express how cute this film was, although the ending was a little bit abrupt, and could have been approached in a different way. I still adore Amanda Seyfried, and Channing Tatum was so good in the film! I've never been a huge fan of him, but this may just have swayed me!
Has anyone else seen 'Dear John' yet? What were your thoughts on it?
