A Walk to Remember (on DVD)

A Walk to Remember
[DVD Walk]

Based on the Nicholas Sparks novel of the same title, but with a number of elements re-arranged and updated, this is an unabashed tear-jerker and I fell in love with it. Released in 2002 and featuring Mandy Moore and Shane West, plus veteran actor and narrator Peter Coyote in a supporting role, it's a bad-boy/good-girl romance with a dose of gravitas but also moments of humor, hope, and faith. It may be too corny or trite for some tastes but I found it to have a very good mix of good acting, good production values, and heartstring-tugging storytelling. [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try A Walk to Remember, the novel by Nicholas Sparks.] -- recommended by Becky W.C. - Walt Branch Library

[Also available in traditional print, book-on-cd and Large Print formats.]
