Nights in Rodanthe Reviews
Even keepers of the Sparks flame are likely to have their spirits dampened by the wind-rattled, Diane Lane and Richard Gereencrusted adaptation of Nights in Rodanthe.
What really sells this three-hanky tear-jerker -- and there were a lot of women buying it during a recent screening -- is Lane's steely and vulnerable performance. Like Tinker Bell, she almost made me believe in fairies. Almost.
It's an increasingly rare pleasure to see two naturally aging adults onscreen, and it's not exactly hard work to watch this still-gorgeous pair fall in love. Especially if you're overdue for a little vacation from reality yourself.
There's nothing like a good tearjerker. Unfortunately, Nights in Rodanthe isn't a good tearjerker, although the characters on-screen shed tears and the movie is pretty jerky.
