Nice SceneryBy a customer , 26 Sep 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]I saw this on a plane back from the US. I had no idea who the main players were but was extremely impressed by Zac Efron. The story is pretty standard fare with the usual overt moral messages but the scenery and images are breathtaking with all of the charachters credible giving the storyline a nice feeling of reality plus it has cute dogs and a glimpse of Efron's butt (what's not to like girls?).
Apart from Mr Efron being fit as a butchers dog he played the character of Logan with a powerful, quiet sensibility which actually overcomes some of the more cringeworthy lines he's given. Taylor Schilling is also very good, there was definitely nice chemistry.
There is no hint of teen fluff or shallow childish pap from HSM star. In short this is a great love story. Rent this film for a romantic night in or for a bit of feel good, the scenery alone is worth it

Perfect girly night in filmBy GingerJam (5 reviews) , 03 Aug 2013Perfect for a girly Saturday night in with a glass of wine. I really enjoyed this film. I normally prefer a bit of comedy with my romance, but this was great without. Scenery was beautiful, Zac Efron was beautiful. Hmmm....

good 'feel-good' movieBy a customer , 11 Jul 2013Great movie, definitely a bit of a chick flick. I enjoyed it though. Lovely, feel-good movie. I would watch again.
Great chemistryBy a customer , 05 Jul 2013Really enjoyed this film. Wasn't sure how I'd find Zach efron in a 'grown up' role but he was very believable and had fantastic chemistry with his female co-star. Lovely story line with plenty of ups and downs. Definitely worth a watch :-)
