"Lane and Gere made this film enjoyable, it's worth the watch if you're at a loose end"
Nights in Rodanthe brings back to the screen two talented actors, Diane Lane and Richard Gere in a story of a man and a woman hungry for something more in their lives. Its a passionate and romantic film about two lost souls who save each other. They both become better people, they both become stronger people.
This is a film about redemption, absolution, and second chances. James Franco is perfectly cast in another micro role but sadly, the film is too short and it felt rushed. The love story builds from so many tragedies it simply isn't convincing. Perhaps if I were a 40 year old divorcee I would be better connected to the storyline. The most impressive thing was the stunning Inn situated on the beach and of course the fact that Gere was still looking reasonibly attractive (even if he has had a bit too much botox).
Lane and Gere made this film enjoyable, it's worth the watch if you're at a loose end but it isn't anything to shout about.
