Life seems to be filled with different types of choices, the choices you make or the choices that make you. The Choice is now one of my favorite romantic movies I’ve seen so far. This movie made me realize how life can be full of so many different options and in order to get different results, we have to be willing to make different choices. I really enjoyed watching Teresa Palmer, Benjamin Walker, and Stephanie Parker play their roles. They were all very fine actors that set a great tone for the movie. It was about a two-hour-long movie and I enjoyed every minute of it. From the beginning to the very end, I was very intrigued due to the basic outline of the love story. Each character in the film, for example, Gabby, had a very strong and powerful personality that really hooked me and made me enjoy her presence during the movie.
Travis Shaw, one of the main characters, who is somewhat of a ladies man, believes that relationships aren’t worth cramping up your life. Gabby Holland on the other hand, is also another main character. Gabby is a feisty medical student who is preparing to settle down with her long-term boyfriend Ryan. As Gabby moves into her new house, now living right next door to Travis, fate seems to have its own way of bringing them together, sparking up a powerful attraction. Their love for each other seems to be changing up their lives in ways they never would’ve pictured. As their bond grows more and more everyday, this couple must decide how strong their love for each other really is, to keep it alive.
Throughout the whole movie I felt like I was on an emotional rollercoaster. The movie was full of captivating and suspenseful scenes where I didn’t know what would happen next. At some parts, holding back the tears was the hardest thing. This movie was really eye opening to me and showed me how we shouldn’t ever live in fear wondering what could happen next. Not worrying about the future and just being able to live in the moment is a gift that a lot of us take for granted.
I didn’t think any movie could be better or just as good as the notebook, but this movie proved me wrong. If I had to rate this movie out of 5 stars I would have to rate it a 4.5-5 stars. I absolutely just enjoyed the entire movie and was more than happy to find out that this wasn’t going to be another cliche type of romance film. This movie was overall really entertaining and even though it was almost two hours long, it felt like not even half of that while being so engaged in it.
I recommend this movie to any teenage girls and couples who are looking for a good love story. After seeing this movie, it’ll make you realize how precious someone can be to you and in an instant can be taken away from you. Go check this movie out while it’s still in theaters and I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
