Safe Haven Movie #Review

Ever feel like starting over? Sometimes you don’t have to make drastic life changes to feel good about yourself.

Star Julianne Hough’s latest film Safe Haven (Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment), which arrives in stores on Blu-ray, DVD and DHD May 7, follows the story of a woman who made drastic changes in an effort to start over. Safe Haven is based on the novel by best-selling author Nicholas Sparks (The Notebook).

Hough plays Katie, a woman moves to Southport, North Carolina and sparks the interest of the locals, especially Alex (Josh Duhamel), a handsome widower. Part of Katie’s healing process involves moving into a small house and remodeling it. Painting her new home provides her with much needed joy and catharsis, as well as a place to call her own.

My Thoughts: I read A LOT!  So, I am always excited when a book I love is released on film.  More times then not, I am disappointed as the movie did not stay true to the book.   I was pleasantly surprised that this was one of those films that really did attempt to follow the book!   Of course there are a few things that are different, but it is expected!  

If you are looking for a great chic-flick to curl up to, then this is your movie.  It has romance, drama and bits of comedy intertwined. Without giving to much away the story follows Katie, who is trying to escape an abusive relationship and start a new life when she meets Alex.  Alex himself is trying to still come to terms with the loss of his wife and raising two kids alone.     Sparks fly between the two, but then things take a turn for the worse when someone from Katie's past comes back.  You will need to check out the film to find out more!
