My Favorite Movie
My favorite movie would have to be "A Walk to Remember." It was about an outwardly plain Christian girl named Jamie, and Landon, an aimless, reckless guy who breezed through school on looks and popularity. I liked this movie for many reasons. The main character, Jamie was not afraid of letting people know that her faith was the most important part of her life. That was very impressive to me. This movie also showed that it is possible for people to change their ways. Most of all it was a love story and that is my favorite kind of movie.
Jamie was true to her beliefs even though it was not cool. She was as far from cool as she could possibly be, but she didn’t care. She was ridiculed all the time by other students. Her beliefs may have costed her some friends but she believed in God and that didn't change. She was very involved in school, with school plays and tutoring.
The movie shows that it is possible for people to change. One night Landon was involved in a prank that landed one kid in the hospital. As punishment Landon had to tutor a young student at school and participate in the Drama Club’s Spring play, two activities the principal hopes will teach him some humility. That led him into close contact with Jamie. He then had to ask her for help with his lines in the play. Jamie was the last person Landon was likely to fall for. But, against Landons own expectations, Landon finds himself falling in love with Jamie, who possesses a passion for life he never imagined possible. After the two become involved Landon didn't care what his friends thought and being popular wasn't important to him anymore. Landon even stood up to her dad, who was against Jamie even helping Landon out with his lines in the school play, and asked Jamie's dad if he could take her out to dinner one night.
This was a love story, but a sad one. Jamie was sick with leukemia. She does everything she can to run away...
