I pray that something picks me up and sets me down in your warm arms…
Dear John, the new movie based on Nicholas Sparks’ best selling novel, hits theaters Friday. And they’ve recruited Channing Tatum for this one. Ladies, prepare to swoon.
I picked up Dear John after watching the trailer before New Moon . I think Channing Tatum is gorgeous, and I loved that love letters fueled a romance despite distance. The G.I. Joe star is the ideal fit for the role of John Tyree, the loner soldier who falls hard for Savannah Lynn Curtis, a conservative small-town girl, played by Mamma Mia‘s Amanda Seyfried. My daydreamy self wandered to a book store, and was hooked from beginning to end.
Martha Wainwright and Snow Patrol head up the soundtrack with “Set The Fire To The Third Bar.” The magnetism in the way their voices mesh together and the urgency of the melody is a great counterpart to this love story.
Fans of The Notebook and Twilighters, run don’t walk. to the theaters. Fall in love all over again.
