‘A Walk to Remember’ ~
CFDb Movie Review &
Each spring in the little port town of Beaufort, North Carolina, Landon Carter remembers his senior year at Beaufort High and Jamie Sullivan, the girl who changed his life. Serious and conservative, Jamie (Mandy Moore) was as far from cool as she could possibly be, and didn’t care. Landon (Shane West) hung with the in-crowd an aimless, moody, reckless guy who breezed through school on looks and bravado and had no plans, no future and no faith in himself.
When a prank goes terribly wrong landing a kid in the hospital, Landon is assigned to tutor a young student on the weekends and participate in the Drama Club’s spring play. Clearly in over his head with both assignments, Landon is forced to ask Jamie for help. Soon, against his own expectations and the scorn of his friends, Landon finds himself falling in love with this outwardly plain girl who possesses a passion for life he never imagined possible.
I need to start off saying there IS a FAMILY FRIENDLY version of this movie and I HIGHLY recommend it. There is 1 scene in particular that is highly offensive in the regular version, including crude humor and some language. This is NOT in the family friendly version and I HIGHLY recommend this film. Since I’ve seen both versions I know what parts I don’t like and I fast forward without being offended. Not everyone has this option, especially if you haven’t seen this movie as many times as I have.
I LOVE this movie! LOVE LOVE LOVE it! It’s a powerful Christian film. Mandy Moore and Shane West and Peter Coyote are fantastic in this, but so is the rest of the cast! If you haven’t seen it, I don’t want to ruin it for you so I’ll just say this is a fantastic film. I love the main character in this played by Mandy Moore. She is the way we, as Christians, are supposed to be…full of faith and hope and love!
Now, as much as I love this move, I LOVE the song Mandy sings in this play. I’ve listened and sang this song at the top of my lungs more times that I could even begin to imagine. We have the movie in our private collection, but when it comes on TV I stop and look at what part it’s on and then tape it if I can, so I can listen to her sing this song over and over again. Fabulous is not even close to doing it justice. You can purchase the SOUNDTRACK!
So…did I mention that I LOVE this movie! Hope you all love it too!
