The Vow!!!

The Vow is directed by Michael Sucsy and stars Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum as Paige and Leo, a happy married couple living in Chicago whose life seemed perfect until one day, everything changed forever. Paige and Leo are involved in a horrific car accident, Leo walks away with just a few minor injuries, but Paige, wakes up and has no memory of every being with Leo. Her memory of the last four years is completely erased and the most recent memories she has is being engaged to someone else. Now, Leo has to fight to save his marriage and hope his wife can fall in love with him all over again.

The Vow is a beautiful love story that is actually inspired by true events. The acting in the film is great; Rachel McAdams in a way portrays two characters. She plays Paige as this sweet, free spirited fun loving woman that loves art and exudes creativity and then she plays Paige as this conservative hardworking woman that attends law school and stresses over everything. The film shows that Paige’s life changed drastically when she met Leo. She quit law school and began to take up art. She gave up meat, changed her hair and her clothes and had no relationship with her family. But, when Paige awakens she has no memory of her fun free spirited self and she adverts to her old ways. Channing Tatum is a delight as Leo, the doting husband. He strives desperately to keep Paige as his wife and it’s heartbreaking to watch his whole life crumble because his wife doesn’t even know him. He portrayed a strong yet vulnerable character well and it was great to see his character transform and hit different levels throughout the film.

The Vow is an emotional film, mostly because it was inspired by real events. At the end of the film, the audience learns what actually occurs to the couple, which made it even more interesting to watch.

The Vow is highly recommended to people who enjoy Rachel McAdams, Channing Tatum, and love stories. It is also recommended for people who enjoy films about true stories, that in one moment, everything can change.
