The Movie: The Last Song
August 30, 2010 § 4 Comments
Seventeen-year-old Veronica ‘Ronnie’ Miller’s life was turned upside-down when her parents divorced and her father moved from New York City to Tybee Island, Georgia. Three years later, she remains angry and alienated from her parents, especially her father …until her mother decides it would be in everyone’s best interest if she spent the summer on Tybee Island with him. Ronnie’s father, a former concert pianist and teacher, is living a quiet life in the beach town, immersed in creating a work of art that will become the centerpiece of a local church. The tale that unfolds is an unforgettable story about love in its myriad forms – first love, the love between parents and children – that demonstrates the many ways that deeply felt relationships can break our hearts …and heal them.
A typical Nicholas Sparks’s. Nothing new and nothing special about this movie. But, I have to admit that it does have some family values to be learn. The scene where Jonah desperately wants to finish up his father’s work, while his father is hospitalized due to cancer really touches me. He also have a good relationship with his sister Ronnie and they are very close to each other. He’s good. Credit to that boy! As for Miley, I seriously think that she doesn’t suit to be Ronnie. lacks of emotion and her acting seems so wrong. Maybe the character is not for Miley as she is more suitable to be a happy go lucky girl! I knew that Miley wants to try a variation of characters (Since she quits Hannah Montana), but this is an honest advice from me to her, “Miley, just stick with your Hannah Montana self, ’cause I love you more with that kind of character.”. You got it Ms. Cyrus? Owh…one more thing, did she really knows how to play piano? Another good side, this movie also brings the message from WWF (or so I thought). Lets save our Turtle! =b
The soundtrack is great. Miley did a really good job, and her singing is fabulous. When I Look at you is one of my favorites right at the moment. Unlike the movie, this song manages to get 4 stars rating from me. Well done!
