Movie Details

Author James Patterson's critically acclaimed best-seller about love and loss comes to the screen in this affecting drama starring Emmy award-winning actress Christina Applegate. Kate Wilkinson (Kathleen Rose Perkins) is a New York book editor who has it all - everything except for love, that is. When Kate meets handsome writer Matt Harrison (Johnathon Scaech) it seems as if all of her dreams in life have been answered. Just as it appears their relationship is reaching that critical point of commitment, however, Matt suddenly and abruptly ends their passionate affair without explanation. At first devastated by her heart-breaking loss, Kate soon receives a package from Matt containing the diary of his late wife Suzanne (Applegate). In the diary, Suzanne details the Martha's Vineyard romance shared between a young housepainter who dreams of becoming a writer, and a female doctor who yearns to experience the joys of motherhood despite her heart-scarred past. As the tragic story of Matt's first love plays out right before Kate's teary eyes, the melancholy measure of closure affords a heavy-hearted New York editor an opportunity to reflect on the love that slowly slipped out of her loving embrace. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
