True Love

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

1 John 4:9

Movie Review: The Vow

Starring: Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams
Directed by:  Michael Sucsy

BLURB: Inspired by a true story, The Vow is the tale of a love that refuses to be forgotten. Leo (Channing Tatum) is devastated when a car accident plunges his wife Paige (Rachel McAdams) into a deep coma. She miraculously recovers – but the last five years of her memories have vanished. Suddenly, Leo finds himself married to a stranger who can’t remember anything about him. Naively, Paige falls back under the influence of her controlling parents (Sam Neill and Jessica Lange) and reconnects with her ex-fiancĂ© (Scott Speedman). Desperately, Leo tries to recreate the moments that shaped their romance. Can he rekindle the passion before he loses Paige forever?

REVIEW: The film is based very loosely on the true story of Kim and Krickett Carpenter shown below with the stars of the movie Rachel Adams and Channing Tatum on the left and the Carpenters on the right.

In the movie Leo and Paige Collins have been married for long but they are blissfully happy and completely in love. But in the space of an instant everything in one’s life can change as the young couple soon find out when an automobile accident lands them both in the hospital. Leo escapes with only minor injuries but Paige who was thrown through the windshield during the accident is in a coma.

When Paige finally emerges from the coma Leo is ecstatic but his joy is short lived when it’s quickly evident that something is very, very wrong. After a thorough examination the doctors determine that Paige is suffering from memory loss of the past few years of her life. Her past memories of growing up are intact but she doesn’t remember anything about her profession, her schooling at the Art Institute or most disturbingly her marriage to Leo. She doesn’t recognize him at all.

Leo is understandably extremely upset and worried. But he holds onto the hope that if he can just take Paige back to their home as soon as she is able to leave the hospital that her memory will return. He will not give up on the woman that means the world to him.

But as time passes and it becomes more and more clear that Paige’s memory is not getting any better will Leo have to face up to the fact that he might have lost the love of his life forever? Or will their love be rekindled even if she can’t remember him from before the accident?

I won’t give it away for those that haven’t seen this one before. But you definitely shouldn’t miss this one. It is a story about true love and what it really means to hold true to the vows of marriage – in sickness and in health, till death do us part… It’s a story of hope through tragedy and love through some of the most difficult circumstances imaginable. Rachel and Channing are wonderful in this one and their on screen chemistry is amazing. If you love a good romance or just a good drama this is a definite must see.

Rated PG-13 for an accident scene, sexual content, partial nudity and some language


It’s the true story the movie was based on.
