PG-13 | | Drama, Romance
A doctor, who is travelling to see his estranged son, sparks with an unhappily married woman at a North Carolina inn.
This is the second movie where the female lead chooses Richard Gere's character over Christopher Meloni's character. It also happens in Runaway Bride (1999).
When Jack left me, it wasn't just our marriage ending. It was the loss of all the hopes that I'd had for the future. I tried to move on, but the world didn't seem that interested in me anymore. Then you came along, and helped me believe in myself ...
In the beginning of the film, when Dr. Paul Flanner is driving to Rodanthe, there is a short scene in which he's driving on US-17 south of Myrtle Beach, SC. (The store with the big sharks mouth entrance) This is nowhere near his supposed driving route. The store with the giant shark is actually the Shark Attack Souvenir and Gift Shop at 1295 NC Highway 210, Sneads Ferry, NC.
