Director Micael Sucsy adapts the true story of Kim and Krickitt Carpenter into the fictional film The Vow that follows the same premise of a couple, now named Leo and Paige Collins.
Leo is a music producer who owns an independent recording company. His wife Paige is an artist who just got a commission for a piece. However, after an accident, Paige looses all of her past memories of her marriage with Leo. At first, the couple tries to work it out, but as it becomes clear that Paige has lost all of her memories completely, they both begin to wonder if she can rediscover their love.
It is a heartwarming love story, but as my sister said, “I liked the film, but they changed everything from the real story.” I somewhat enjoyed it, especially since it breaks from the usual romantic comedy formula, but it fell short on a few plot points.
That is not meant to take away from the talent. Tatum and McAdams have great on screen chemistry. They carry the film even through its flaws. It was a refreshing look at romantic films instead of being a carbon copy of the 90s romantic comedies.
FAVORITE QUOTE: You are such a hypocrite!
If you would like to order your paperback copy of my own debut novel Cacophony: A Tale Of Faith And Fear, click here. It is an incredible paranormal thriller about a group of demons trying to steal human souls by assaulting their church. The Messenger Gabriel, a Guardian angel Christopher, and the Seven Archangels are sent by God to stop them. It’s a tale that mixes drama, supernatural fiction, with a dash of fantasy.
