THE LONGEST RIDE
Release date: April 10
Director: George Tillman Jr.
Cast: Britt Robertson, Scott Eastwood, Alan Alda, Jack Huston
One time, my stepdad invited his bratty niece to accompany my family on vacation to South Carolina. She sang “All Star” by Smash Mouth and other various songs from the Shrek soundtrack, in the car for nearly 11 hours straight. That, my friends, was the longest ride. This movie, based on the novel by recently-separated-from-his-wife love guru Nicholas Sparks, is the story of a country bumpkin bull rider (Eastwood) and an artist with big city aspirations (Robertson) who fall in love against all odds. When their romance hits a snag, the couple is inspired by an old man (Alda) and his own tale of romance.
