Agreed and it made me angry how people tried to vilify Lon.

I agree. It's a favourite!

Did you read the book?

It's funny because this is one of the very few romantic movies that my Dad actually likes (he also likes The Fault in Our Stars) - I think the arcs of the illnesses really make him emotional

But every time I think of this movie, I think of how Lon was screwed over

A little fact for those unaware: the director of 'The Notebook' was Nick Cassavetes, who's the eldest child of one of cinema's most beloved on/off-screen couples John Cassavetes and Gena Rowlands (yes, he lovingly cast his mother in the role of older Allie! ) John was considered the king of independent cinema. He always went against the mainstream and followed his own methods in his writing/directing.

Film-making is a shared family devotion, so there's a huge possibility that Nick was inspired to direct 'The Notebook' due to its core love story - something that his father always prioritized in his story-telling and also because of its eternal love aspect that is very true to the deep/unchanging love of his parents (who were married for 35 years until his father's death).

Here's a vintage family photo of Nick with his parents and younger sisters in 1974, during the filming of his mom and dad's movie ~
