The Silver Bullet ~ Safe Haven

safe_haven

Synopsis: A young woman with a mysterious past lands in Southport, North Carolina where her bond with a widower forces her to confront the dark secret that haunts her

Release Date: February 14, 2013

Thoughts: You may be asking yourself…didn’t I already see this movie and wasn’t it called The Lucky One?  The answer is kinda yes and kinda no.  Last February saw the release of the Zac Efron movie adapted from a novel by Nicholas Sparks and one year later another Sparks romance is primed for release.  These are some of the most formulaic films ever made but the continued success at the box office makes them candy to studio executives targeting that elusive female movie goer.  After directing another Sparks adaptation (Dear John), director Lasse Hallström takes on another soapy Sparks story with the same cookie cutter people, places, and problems.
