PG | | Drama, Romance
The story of two North Carolina teens, Landon Carter and Jamie Sullivan, who are thrown together after Landon gets into trouble and is made to do community service.
This movie was filmed in only thirty-nine days, despite the fact that they only had Mandy Moore for ten hours a day because she was still a minor.
Is he here yet?
When Jamie is in the hospital and is giving Landon her mother's quote book, in the first shot from the front she first reaches for it with her right hand. In the second shot from the back, she is reaching for it with her left hand while her right hand is stationary. In the last shot from the front she has the book in her right hand and gives it to Landon.
The DVD audio commentary mentions that they filmed a scene where Landon sings "Only Hope" to Jamie while she is sick in bed. It was edited out because it was too depressing.
