Nights in Rodanthe

Nights in Rodanthe which is a similar veined story as The Notebook as both were written by the same author, tells the story of a woman at a crossroads in life whose life is in chaos. The woman is Adrienne Willis (Diane Lane), who begins the film locking horns with her teenaged daughter Amanda (Mae Whitman) and son Danny (Charlie Tahan) about going to spend the weekend with their father Jack (Christopher Meloni).

To compound the situation, Jack drops the bombshell that he is once again sorry for the affair that he committed and wishes to return home, however Adrienne has mixed feelings and needs time to think about it, more specifically in Rodanthe. For in Rodanthe, Adrienne has agreed to tend the seaside inn owned by her best friend, Jean (Viola Davis) and also spend some time soul searching.

As luck would have it, there’s only one guest staying at the inn that weekend, a mysterious and seemingly secretive doctor named Paul Flanner (Richard Gere) and eventually, they both open up to each other. As time passes, both become close, however they eventually become closer when the impending hurricane finally hits the area and Paul and Adrienne find themselves trapped inside, seeking each other for comfort.

After professing his love to Adrienne, he also explains that he needs to set things right with his son as does Adrienne with her husband Jack. Of course, nothing is ever as clear-cut in life and the ending here may surprise a few expecting everything to be tied up with a neat little bow.

On blu-ray the video and audio quality of Nights in Rodanthe is brilliant with sharp images, true blacks and vibrant colours that is matched well with the Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound which sounds phenomenal when the hurricane hits. When it comes to special features, the disc is lacking anything too in-depth, besides the feature commentary track and a few other tidbits.

At the end of the day, Nights in Rodanthe is quite a predictable and manipulative tearjerker from writer Nicholas Sparks that unfortunately falls a little flat, unlike his previous clever story, The Notebook.
