Really good film. From the story line I thought "cheesy cowboy love story" but it was very engrossing and satisfying, with some valuable life lessons.

I checked this out to watch young Eastwood and Alan Alda. Bull riding was interesting. Bit too long at 128 minutes.

This movie is everything I was hoping for in a movie “based on a Nicholas Sparks book”. Heartfelt, genuine, and a true to life drama with an actor (Alan Alda) who has more than proved himself on stage and in film. As an added bonus, it was fun to watch two of the special features, “Meet the real bull riders”, and “Luke’s bull riding school”. A great movie with lessons for both young and old.

Typical Sparks formulaic sappy romance BUT still enjoyed it. If you can get thru the first part to when Alan Alda shows up, it gets better from there. Oona Chaplin and Jack Huston are quite good in their roles, along with Alda. If not for them, the movie would just be dull and sappy. Scott Eastwood was just eye candy for the ladies really.

Maybe it's a chick flick. Seemed to me to just be an adolescent romance with a lot of silly females wowing young Eastwood.

It was good until they had... They weren't married. One good thing was that Ira's girlfriend wanted a large family(like everybody should), but they even ruined that by not giving that to her. Not at all recommended. Note: Does he remind you a little bit of Chuck Connors?

Enjoyable movie. Typical Nicholas Sparks story. No swearing, smoking or violence, other that what is given out by the bulls! Recommended movie.

Very romantic movie about love and sacrifice. I love Alan's portrait of his character. I grew up with him as an actor in M*A*S*H, the Korean War medical TV show. I always wondered how Ira would know if Luke would purchase that face of Ruth picture.

[ Ira, with tears in his eyes, pours his heart out to Ruth, who's about to walk out on him. ]

Ira: "I just need to say something...I need to say something. You know I fell in love with you the first time I saw you. You're just the most amazing, beautiful girl I've ever met, and somehow...I don't know...somehow you chose me. But how I loved you then it's...God... it's nothing compared to how I love you now. And I love you with everything inside me. I think you should go. You see, I love you so much; I just want you to be happy, even if that happiness no longer includes me."

[ Ira and Ruth tearfully embrace and kiss. She leaves. And the scene flashes forward to the present day, where an older Ira is recounting to Sophia the events of the past, while she sits at his bedside. ]

Ira: [to Sophia] "Love requires sacrifice...always."

[In a flashback to May, 25, 1940; Ira walks Ruth home from the synagogue.]

Ruth: "You know, sometimes I think ...What right do I have to be happy when there's so much suffering in the world?"

Ira: "I guess you could say...What right do you have to be unhappy?"

Ruth: "True! You know for a country pumpkin, you're quite philosophical."

[ Ira laughs at being called "a country pumpkin". ]

Ruth: "What?"

Ira: "It's a country bumpkin, not a country pumpkin."

Ruth: "What?"

Ira: "I think I prefer the way you said it."
