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.
