STARRING Miley Cyrus, Greg Kinnear, Liam Hemsworth, Kelly Preston
WRITTEN BY Jeff Van Wie
DIRECTED BY Julie Anne Robinson
The latest film based on a novel by Dear John author Nicholas Sparks, so cue tears now. Ronnie, a moody, musical New York teen (Miley Cyrus), is sent to stay with her estranged father (Greg Kinnear) for the summer. Despite the family’s rocky history, a mutual love of music helps the two reconnect. Meanwhile, local boy Will (played by Cyrus’ real boyfriend Liam Hemsworth) catches Ronnie’s heart. In typical Sparks’ fashion, the end of the summer brings conflict and reveals hidden secrets. Expect the usual: beautiful beach scenes, huge Southern houses, and a weepy ending. Here’s hoping we can hear Miley sing!
