Jamie Sullivan (Mandy Moore) is the pastor's daughter who strives to be true to herself and to what she believes in. Her character is remarkable in this film. Mandy Moore portrays Jamie so well it's hard not to love her. She's strong, feisty, smart, young, beautiful, pure, and full of integrity.
Landon Carter (Shane West) is a troubled teenager who is lacking in many ways. He needs to find something to live for, but he's seemingly uninterested. All that could save him at this point is a miracle.
The acting and character development throughout the film is amazing. And the way they manage to include a few vocal solos with Mandy Moore's angelic voice truly make the movie for me.
Directed by Adam Shankman, this film was based off Nicholas Sparks' novel. It was very well executed and has moved countless viewers. I highly recommend this coming of age story for young and old alike.
