Aro Recommended Notebook, The


USA 2004, 124 minutes
Dir. Nick Cassavetes
Rating: [PG]
Genres: Drama / Romance

Topics: Period 1940s, Tearjerker.


Aroview: An old-fashioned weepie set in a coastal town in 1940's North Carolina, this nostalgic "woman's picture" finds a sure-footed romantic tone but is likely too sentimental to sweep their menfolk off their feet.

Framed by the reading of a notebook, its pages reveal how over the course of a summer, a wealthy debutante fell in love with a humble mill worker, only to be driven apart by the outbreak of World War II. By the time war is over, fate has furnished them with separate destinies but brought them back to the same town to reconcile their wounded hearts.
