Diane Lane, Richard Gere and James Franco star in Nicholas Sparks' tender story of hope and joy; of sacrifice and forgiveness--a moving reminder that love is possible at any age, at any time, and often when least expected--Nights in Rodanthe. At forty-five, Adrienne Willis (Diane Lane--Must Love Dogs) must rethink her entire life when her husband abandons her for a younger woman. She flees to the small coastal town of Rodanthe, North Carolina. But when a major storm starts moving in, it appears that Adrienne's perfect getaway will be ruined--until a guest named Paul Flanner (Richard Gere--Final Analysis, Chicago) arrives. At fifty-four, Paul has come to Rodanthe to escape his own shattered past. Now, with a storm closing in, two wounded people will turn to each other for comfort--and in one weekend set in motion feelings that will resonate for the rest of their lives.

Critics Consensus: Derivative and schmaltzy, Nicholas Sparks' Nights in Rodanthe is strongly mottled by contrivances that even the charisma of stars Diane Lane and Richard Gere can't repair.

Weepy romance is tame but may not interest teens.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that -- in terms of swearing, sexuality, violence, and commercialism -- there's hardly any age-inappropriate content in this romantic (if cliched) drama based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks. That said, it may not interest a lot of young since since it deals with mature subjects like infidelity, divorce, and death (albeit with plenty of empathy). Adult characters drink heavily in one scene.
