    Default Nights in Rodanthe

    Is anyone else looking forward to this movie as much as I am? I adore Diane Lane and can't wait to see her and Richard Gere together on screen again.

    I'm excited to see the movie, both because of the stars and also because it was filmed near my house.

    Is that a movie based on a Nicolas Sparks novel?

    Yep. Just finished the book last week. Diane was the perfect choice for Adriene.

    Thordis, you live on the Outer Banks? Such a lovely area I hope to visit someday.

    Yes, enjoyed it immensely (cried at the end). Finished it in two days.

    Yes, I live here--it's every bit as beautiful as the movie shows (from the previews I've seen.) The helicopters flew back and forth for hours over our house and the beaches as they shot the scenes for the movie.

    I hope you get the chance to visit. The Outer Banks is an amazing place!

    I'll have to read it. Nicolas Sparks always has me crying at the end of his books. He's a real tearjerker.

    I can see where it could be a good read and I can see why an actress would want that part, but the movie was predictable, way too sentimental for my taste and much too wholesome.

    Diane and Richard fit together nicely. He had some good moments and was lit so well that he just looked terrific. Love you Diane but they gave you an atrocious sensible haircut that was very unflattering. These two could have kicked up the passion and showed their natural sexiness. It was like watching your parents fall in love and make out on the sofa. Blech.

    Richard's son was James Franco. I'd never seen him before. Cute, good choice.

    If you get curious, don't pay, wait to see it on cable or watch it online.

    Gosh, I have stayed in Nags Head, Salvo, Hatteras and Waves--never Rodanthe!! But Outter Banks are a great place to go and visit (and live as another poster said) so perhaps I'll actually catch this one!!

    I saw the movie in the theater. It was SO strange to see familiar places on the big screen. The strangest thing was the way they removed other, nearby houses, from the scenes of the guest house in the film. One of the houses near the house from the movie has since been destroyed in a storm.

    I'm not a softie but I shed a tear at the end. I don't want to give anything away but the subject of the end is something very important to me (and many others here on the Outer Banks).

    That said, the movie conveyed the beauty of our area but I felt like the novel needed more time to be told in the film version.

    Wow... I just saw this, finally, and was amazed at how shocking BAD it was. The editing/direction was terrible. And the screenplay adaptation was just awful.

    I will give Diane Lane credit, though for wearing very little, if any, makeup in this movie. She clearly looks her age- if not a few years older.
