The Last Song is a novel written by the same man who wrote A Walk to Remember, The Notebook and Dear John – Nicholas Sparks. All of which, incidently, are motion pictures.
It is what it promises; a gooey, emotional and heartbreaking romance. Be it father-daughter love, brother-sister love or boyfriend-girlfriend love, there’s affection… and a lot of it.
Directed by Julie Anne Robinson, The Last Song stars Miley Cyrus, rising actress and singer, who also has her own Disney show by the name Hannah Montana.
She plays the leading lady, or teen, who goes through a transformation which changes her personality and outlook on the world. Of course, this doesn’t happen without some life changing experiences.
Which reminds me, her co-star Liam Hemsworth, was a major part of her decision to open up her heart to the world and its frightening possibilities. They meet accidentally and he soon proves to her that he’s not the jerk she believes him to be.
Not too much to our surprise, they fall in love eventually and, together, face the obstacles life pushes their way.
Along with the laughter and smiles comes the tears of joy and sadness.
[ Personal Note: This movie made me cry more than thrice. ]
But while on this rollercoaster, we notice that Cyrus’s acting has matured, the storyline is not as cheesy as you’d expect and that sometimes, even the things we most take for granted could disappear in a matter of moments.
Cyrus performed a ballad especially for The Last Song which featured as the soundtrack.
