As soon as I saw the previews for "The Vow", my heart completely melted. Actually let me rephrase that. After I saw Channing Tatum on the big screen, my heart melted. I bet any girl would agree with me.
The Vow is an upcoming romantic drama film directed by Michael Sucsy, and stars Channing Tatum, Rachel McAdams, Sam Neill, Scott Speedman, and Jessica Lange. This idealistic movie is about a newlywed couple recovering from a sudden car accident that puts Leo’s (Channing Tatum) wife Paige (Rachel McAdams) in a coma. When Leo discovers the seriousness of her memory loss, he does nothing but try to win her heart again.
In a recent interview on Live! With Kelly, Rachel McAdams revealed that this romantic story is actually inspired by a real life couple, Kim and Krickitt Carpenter. Two months after their wedding day, a car accident left Krickitt with a massive head injury and in a coma for weeks.
Against all odds, Kim and Krickitt were able to fall madly in love again. Krickitt never recovered from her memory loss, but is still married to Km and has two children. Kim stood by Krickitt even through dark times. He insists, “I’m no hero. I made a vow.”
Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum are the perfect couple to star in this movie. After both of their outstanding performances in "The Notebook" and "Dear John", they fit the roles perfectly.
So what is it about this movie that makes it look so good? The endearing plot? The amazing actors? Rachel McAdams beauty? Or maybe Channing Tatum’s extremely good looks?
Or maybe it’s hope. Hope that one day we will find a guy that will go through anything for us. A guy that will love us so much that he sticks by our side when everyone else looks like a stranger.
I think the idea of being able to fall in love again after something so dramatic really draws me into the dreamy plot.
All I know is if I woke up from a coma and Channing Tatum told me he was my husband, I definitely wouldn’t question it!
