Just saw Nicholas Sparks' newest movie "The Last Song"
« on: October 15, 2009, 12:36:54 am »
Living in Los Angeles, we have the opportunity to attend test screenings of upcoming films every once in a while. Tonight, my wife and I, along with our oldest daughter, son and his girlfriend, went to see "The Last Song" based on the novel by Nicholas Sparks.



I haven't read the book, or any of his books, for that matter. In fact, I haven't even seen any of the movies based on his novels, either. We all really enjoyed the film. The packed theatre also seemed satisfied, as they applauded for a good minute or two once the end credits began. The film stars Miley Cyrus and Greg Kinnear, and both gave very good performances, particularly Greg Kinnear. I don't want to give anything away for those who haven't read the book, so I won't talk about the story here. The look of the film was fairly polished, although the audio track was obviously at an early stage and had a lot of work left to complete.

According to IMDB, the film is scheduled for US release April 2nd, 2010.

Edit: Just found this year old article that says Nicholas Sparks wrote the novel and the screenplay simultaneously, with Miley Cyrus in mind for the main character.

    Interesting.  Mr. Sparks is such a talented writer.  His stories are beautiful...mostly sad, but beautiful none the less.
