About the Movie
Grieving widower Garret Blake builds boats for a living. Rebuilding his life-that's another matter. But that's before Theresa Osborne comes to his North Carolina village. Theresa, a lonely divorcee and researcher for the Chicago Tribune, knows that Garret is the author of the message she found inside a bottle on a Cape Code beach. And she knows the message spoke to her in a way that profoundly touched her heart. Kevin Costner as Garret and Robin Wright Penn as Theresa bring high-voltage star power to Message in a Bottle, a tale of love lost and found based on Nicholas Sparks' bestseller and directed by Luis Mandoki (White Palace, When a Man Loves a Woman). "You choose-the past or the future. Pick one and stick with it," Garret's spry father Dodge (Paul Newman) advises. The advice sticks. So does the impact of this tender, movingly filmed tale.
God bless all the people who created this movie!
A+ It's been my favorite since I was 10.
The book was way better. Luis Mandoki isn't a very good screen play writter. He should have used the help of Nicholas Sparks. The movie itself was bland and quite boring, and you are left waiting till the end to feel something memorable. I was quite surprised that this movie did not, in fact meet my expectations.
Message in a Bottle!
Great! Period end of story!
