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?
In the scene between Landon and his mother the night after Landon gives Jamie the star registry paper, the wind kicks up and stops alternately between shots.
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.
