If you are ever in the mood for some tear-jerking romance and drama, The Choice, is the movie for you. The movie is based off of the Nicholas Sparks novel, The Choice. It takes place in the most romantic setting, a small coastal town, and it is full of young love. The Choice is about a man named Travis Shaw, played by Benjamin Walker, who is a cool, easy going, and good looking man, who is currently in an "off and on" relationship with his high school girlfriend, but is not ready for commitment. Gabby Holland, played by Teresa Palmer, is a stubborn young medical student, with a long time boyfriend, who recently moves into the house next door to Shaw. At first the two don't get along, because of Travis's smug and egotistical nature and Gabby's fiery and stubborn mindset. However, over time the two start to grow fond of each other, and they will have to decide whether or not their love is real and if they will be together. Directed by Ross Katz, The Choice is a well acted, heart warming, romantic drama between main characters, Travis Shaw and Gabby Holland, who will have to make a decision on whether or not their love is worth fighting for.
The Choice is a great movie because of its well selected cast. I think that Ross Katz, the director, along with screenplay writer, Bryan Sipe, did a great job making the film come together as a whole. They choose very talented group of actors and actresses to make the movie come to life. In the film, Benjamin Walker played the lead male role, Travis Shaw, and Teresa Palmer played the lead female role, Gabby Holland. This talented duo was able to bring out the unique personalities of their characters. They both did an amazing job at making it seem like their feelings for each other grew gradually throughout the film, and the connection between the two characters was incredible. The love they had for each other, draws the viewers in and makes them feel connected to the film.
The Choice also had great drama scenes. At the beginning of the movie, you can already sense that there is tension between Travis and Gabby, and as the film progresses you can still feel the tension building between the two, even after they begin to fall in love. When things between them are at a high, Gabby and Travis will be forced to make a choice that will affect whether or not their love is worth fighting for. I think that Nicholas Sparks writing really came alive through the film. Each dramatic scene was acted and planned so perfectly that the drama that was woven into the romance of the story, putting the viewers at the edge of their seat.
The Choice was also very heartwarming. Throughout the film, there is definite growth within the characters as individuals. Supporting roles like Stephanie Shaw, Travis's sister, played by Maggie Grace, and Monica, Travis's girlfriend, played by Alexandra Daddario, have important and heartwarming moments together that help to shape him into a even better man. The transformation and growth of character relationships in the film was also amazing. As the love between Travis and Gabby grow, the more intimate moments they have together. The relationship between the two is so full of love that it will touch your heart.
Overall, I think that The Choice is a great movie. It has great actors that makes the movie come to life, and it is full of dramatic and heartwarming scenes. It is hands down one of my favorite movies, because I love how even though there's ups and downs in the relationship in the movie, it still somehow seems perfect. The Choice is an amazing movie for teenagers or adults, it will keep you at the edge of your seat but also touch your heart.
