The Choice 2016

     This film is based on the 11th book made into a movie by Nicholas Sparks.  Travis lives on near the water and he has a boat.  He goes out a lot alone or with his friends.  Gabby moves next door and she sees the partying and hears the loud music.  She is a medical student and she needs quiet for her large amount of studying.  She accuses Travis of allowing his dog to sneak over to her home and now her dog is going to have puppies.  Travis is a vet and he works with his father.  He denies his dog had anything to do with the puppies because his dog has had surgery at their clinic.
     The basic theory behind this film is that we all have choices.  The first choice sets the groundwork concerning the next choices we need to make.  I wonder if there are any differences between Nicolas Sparks movies and Hallmark Movies?  I wasn’t sure where the location was until Travis goes to South Carolina so I knew he must be in North Carolina.  The scenery is very beautiful.  I wonder if they should start including tissues in the DVD boxes and violins in the background music?  3* (This movie is OK)

111 min, Drama directed by Ross Katz with Benjamin Walker, Teresa Palmer, Alexandra Daddario, Tom Wilkinson, Tom Welling, Jesse C. Boyd, Brad James, Noree Victoria, Anna Enger, Lou Lou Safran.

Note:  Imdb 6.5 out of 10, 12% critic 62% audience on Rotten Tomatoes, Roger Ebert 1 ½*, Amazon 4.3* out of 5* with 702 reviews.
Special Note:  Filmed in Wilmington, North Carolina.  There is a mistake, the puppies are not newborn but several weeks old.  Benjamin Walker was in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Teresa Palmer has been in I Am Number Four, Take Me Home Tonight and Cut Bank.
