The Best of Me

You never forget your first love.


The Best of Me
Two highschool sweethearts reconnect at a funeral of a mutual friend, twenty years after they last saw each other. While she is now married (unhappily), it is clear that there is still an attraction between them. The question is, will she be able to forgive him for pushing her away all those years ago? Fans of Nicholas Sparks should know what to expect. Take tissues.

Tomatometer quote iconAt nine films and counting, the line between Nicholas Sparks film fans and detractors is clear, and The Best of Me will change few minds on either side of the divide.
