Today I finally went to the cinema to watch this movie which I’ve been waiting for since 2009 (yes, back then I lo-lo-looooved Rob Pattinson so I decided to watch all his movies. I don’t like him that much now, but I’m still going to watch all his films). I liked it, especially the cast: Robert Pattinson, Uma Thurman and Kristin Scott Thomas – great actors – and because the movie follows the book exactly and this is nice. Sad action though… A chronicle of a young man’s rise to power in Paris via his manipulation of the city’s most influential and wealthy women. And now I can’t help myself and post several photos because Pattinson is too gorgeous and charming:
Yes, I know it’s kinda lame that I see it in 2011, but you know: better later than never. I really like Rachel McAdams; I’ve seen her for the first time in Sherlock Holmes as Irene Adler (yaay, can’t wait for part 2) and she’s really beautiful and talented. And Ryan Gosling is such a sexy babe :D The movie is so romantic and sad, but a great one!
Storyline via imdb: The movie focuses on an old man reading a story to an old woman in a nursing home. The story he reads follows two young lovers named Allie Hamilton and Noah Calhoun, who meet one evening at a carnival. But they are separated by Allie’s parents who disapprove of Noah’s unwealthy family, and move Allie away. After waiting for Noah to write her for several years, Allie meets and gets engaged to a handsome young soldier named Lon. Allie, then, with her love for Noah still alive, stops by Noah’s 200-year-old home that he restored for her, „to see if he’s okay”. It is evident that they still have feelings for each other, and Allie has to choose between her fiancé and her first love.
