On Monday night I got the chance to see an early viewing of the new movie Safe Haven based on the novel by Nicholas Sparks. I have to say it was absolutely amazing. I read the book beforehand and although they did change things from the book to the movie, they still did great. Julianne Hough and Josh Duhamel where the perfect people to play Alex and Katie.
The movie is about Katie who ends up in Southport, North Carolina with a mysterious past. When she shows up she catches the eye of, Alex, a local store owner with two kids. Alex might not have a mysterious past but his past is sad. Two years ago Alex lost his wife to cancer leaving him to raise their two kids on his own.
As Alex and Katie grow closer, Katie starts to let her guard down and get comfortable in Southport. But she can’t escape her past as easy as she thought. She soon finds her past coming out and she is forced to tell Alex the truth. During the whole movie it switches from present to parts of Katie’s past so you get to see what happened little by little.
Make sure to get your tickets and go see it this weekend.
