Dear John by Nicholas SparksAn angry rebel, John dropped out of school and enlisted in the Army, not knowing what else to do with his life--until he meets the girl of his dreams, Savannah.

But 9/11 changes everything. John feels it is his duty to re-enlist. And sadly, the long separation finds Savannah falling in love with someone else.
Dear John, the letter read... and with those two words, a heart was broken and two lives were changed forever. Returning home, John must come to grips with the fact that Savannah, now married, is still his true love—and face the hardest decision of his life.

‘Dear John’ Had Last-Minute Ending Change of Heart
It follows the life of a soldier Channing Tatum after he falls in love with a young woman Amanda Seyfried. They decide to exchange letters to each other after he is deployed to the war. The movie was filmed in in Charleston, South Carolina. In a voice-over, he recalls a childhood trip to the US Mint and compares himself to a coin in the United States military before stating that the last thing he thought of before he blacked out was "you. In , John is on leave in Charleston , South Carolina. He meets Savannah Curtis, a college student building homes with a group of co-eds for Habitat for Humanity while on spring break, when he fetches her purse after she drops it off of a pier into the ocean.
The not-so-good news is that the film, while heartfelt and directed by multiple-Oscar nominee Lasse Hallstrom, is dramatically stillborn. The mad passion at the center of the movie raises the temperature not one degree, and all the sentimentality that surrounds the movie — an autistic child, a shy, emotionally stunted father, a wounded vet and later a character with a stroke and another with cancer — feels like so many tugs on the heartstrings. A guy and gal meet by chance. John is a quiet though intense Special Forces soldier visiting his dad while on leave. Dad the wonderful Richard Jenkins is obsessed with his coin collection and little else.
Long before there was even such a thing as movies, there have been stories about young lovers who are separated when one goes off to war. Historically, it's usually been the man, although in real life that's changed these past few years. But oddly enough, our most recent wars haven't inspired much in terms of wartime melodrama. It's as if we've somehow become too grown-up, too sophisticated, to allow ourselves the luxury of feeling something for fictional characters caught up in the issues -- personal and emotional ones, specifically -- our current wars present. Maybe we've decided, as a culture, that spilling too much emotion over the subject might be a source of embarrassment, even though it's also entirely possible that one of the subtler roles of melodrama is to help us sort out our feelings about complex and painful world events. The characters in those movies look like grown-ups and many of them are full-fledged adults , but those stories frame the possibility of loss and heartbreak in such dramatic terms that they feel youthful at their core. Just looking at the faces of its two stars, Amanda Seyfried and Channing Tatum, brings that home.
