In the summer of 2001, New York college student Tyler (Robert Pattinson) is still feeling lost from the tragedy that has strained his relationship with his father when he meets Ally (Emilie de Ravin), a girl who understands his pain. The last thing Tyler's looking for is love, but through their passionate relationship, he finds new possibilities for happiness. It's an unforgettable story about the power of the heart, the strength of family, and the importance of treasuring every day of one's life.
The romance and the tremendously caring bond with his young sister are clearly to give the plot an attraction in a corny and meaningless way. The rest of the plot however is clever, imaginative and memorable. The main characters are well played (except Pierce Brosnan) and interesting. The twist at the end took me completely by surprise.
