The Vow

By Pamela

From time to time, we’re invited to screen movies. Last week, we met at a theater in Dallas to get a sneak peek at The Vow, a film starring Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum. As an added bonus, Julie was asked by the local film studio representative to introduce the movie as well as talk about her book, Calling Me Home. Even though it will be a year before her book comes out, she’s already hard at work, spreading the word about the story of Isabelle and Robert--two young people in love at a time when their relationship was not only unconventional, but illegal. After the movie, Julie passed out cards with information about the book and her website, enclosed in a bag with a cookie. (We thought, who wouldn’t pass up a homemade treat? And everyone seemed to enjoy a sweet after the show.)

One thing we’ve learned here at What Women Write--even before we started our blog--is the value of camaraderie. That having close friends to help lift you up when you’re feeling down as well as share in the great moments that happen to you is invaluable. Going to the movie together is a fun excuse for a girls’ night out, and we enthusiastically recommend The Vow--a love story about a happy newlywed couple (played by McAdams and Tatum) whose lives are changed by a car accident that puts Paige (Rachel McAdams) in a coma. Waking up with severe memory loss, Paige has no memory of Leo (Channing Tatum), a confusing relationship with her parents (Sam Neill and Jessica Lange), and an ex-fiancé (Scott Speedman) she may still have feelings for. Despite these complications, Leo endeavors to win her heart again and rebuild their marriage.

The movie opens February 10.
