Inspired by Grey’s Anatomy’s #TearsofGreys I decided to make a top Five list of TV Shows or Movies that make me have to break out the tissues even after repeat viewings. So without further adieu…
5. A Walk to Remember
This was my first introduction to Nicholas Sparks and while the story was somewhat formulaic; quiet, somewhat nerdy small town girl catches the attention of the town bad boy and shows him he has a heart. There was something about Mandy Moore’s portrayal of Jamie that I think got to me. She was so innocent and I believed that she wasn’t interested in Landon and that love just happened with them. And it was a beautiful love. It was soft and sweet. It was full of faith and understanding. The way Landon tackled Jamie’s cancer and helped her cross of her bucket list, he made it clear no matter how hard she pushed him away that they were in this together. And it was moving how they spent a lifetime in the little time they had and how Jamie completely changed Landon’s and her father’s lives. I loved how as the viewer you know that her love made sure neither of these men would ever be alone now , that because of their experience with her they now had each other. Ok, now I am crying.
