Nick Cassavetes’s modern classic is a beautiful and heartbreaking romance drama. Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams star as Noah and Allie; a young couple whose story about how they meet and fall in love in the 1940s is narrated from the present day by an elderly patient. There are many obstacles that prevent the young couple from being together, but they eventually overcome them in the saddest but most beautiful way. Be prepared to sob a river.

The two conceal their love from everyone as they meet in secret and their feelings from each other grow stronger. But the two gangs are preparing for a final showdown to proclaim control of the streets. Is the romance doomed to failure, or can it overcome?
