The movie version of "The Longest Ride" was playing at our local cinema and so we went to see it.
Two love stories were entwined in a very effective way.
The roles of the young couple were played by Britt Robertson and Scott Eastwood (the son of Clint Eastwood). I felt that these actors were over-acting but perhaps it was just highly-romantic.
Luke was a bull-rider and Sophia was interested in art. The collision of these two worlds forms the basis for this story. The young couple discovered a car accident and pulled out the driver - a widowed 91-year-old, Ira, played by Alan Alda.
He married and raised a family in North Carolina. During this time, he found a publisher and he became very successful. He has written 18 books and 11 of them have already been made into movies.
The movie version of "The Longest Ride" is definitely worth seeing.
