Based on Nicholas Sparks’
bestseller The Lucky One, Zac Efron forgets the endless choruses of We're All In
This Together and everything that vaguely resembles Vanessa Hudgens staring
alongside Taylor Schilling (From a television show called Mercy) and Blythe
Danner (She’s the Mum from Meet the Parents? No, us neither) in this romantic drama directed
by Scott Hicks.
Efron plays a Sergeant in the U.S
Marines called Logan Thibault, who has just returned from his tour of duty in
Iraq, clutching a photograph he found of a woman he doesn’t even know. As if by magic,
he turns up in the same town as her, and upon learning her name is Beth, he inserts herself into her life.
Creepy behaviour aside, romance comes out on top,
despite her initial mistrust (we don't blame her), with all the complications in her life that any
typical leading lady needs.
