29 Movies Like The Notebook

A resident named Duke, played by James Garner, reads a love story to an older woman named Gena Rowlands, who has dementia and memory loss. The setting is a nursing home. Allie Hamilton (Rachel McAdams), a wealthy teenager who is 17 years old at the time, is vacationing in Seabrook during the late 1930s. At a carnival, a local laborer named Noah Calhoun, played by Ryan Gosling, meets Allie, and the two quickly fall in love with one another.

One day, Noah surprises Allie by bringing her to an old house he has always dreamed of purchasing and restoring. The two attempt to make love, but their mutual friend interrupts them. Allie’s parents oppose her relationship with Noah because he comes from a different social class than them, and they do not want them to move to New York with her. Noah sends Allie 365 letters, which amounts to one per day for an entire year; however, Allie’s mother, Anne Hamilton (Joan Allen), does not give the letters to her daughter.

Three years later, the United States of America enlists in World War II, and Noah and his best friend Fin (played by Kevin Connolly) and Allie, who works as a nurse in the military, serve their country. She has a chance encounter with injured soldier Lon Hammond, played by James Marsden, in the hospital. After the war, they begin seeing each other again and go on a few dates before Lon, successful and good-looking, makes his proposal.

In the meantime, Noah purchases and restores the old house, and there is a lot of interest in buying it. When Allie comes across a photograph of Noah and his home in a newspaper by accident, she is torn between her feelings for her first love, Noah, and her commitment to her relationship with Lon. While this is going on, Duke decides to stop reading to the older woman because his children are coming to visit him in the nursing home.
