Movie Watch: Safe Haven

I’ve lost count of how many “movies based on a Nicholas Sparks novel” there are, largely because most aren’t as memorable as The Notebook. That said, I always enjoy them, and this one was no exception. It was sweet, romantic, and the two main actors had great chemistry. I also liked the children, especially Lexi. They were genuinely likable and well behaved, a nice alternative to bratty/annoying caricatures I’ve seen in other movies.

Overall, I liked this film. I can’t say it had me on the edge of my seat, but it was well acted, had a decent plot, and the filmography/setting was beautiful. A solid effort.
