Safe Haven - DVD Review

I received DVD for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

Movie Synopsis:

An affirming and suspenseful story about a young woman’s struggle to love again, Safe Haven is based on the novel from Nicholas Sparks, the best-selling author behind the hit films The Notebook and Dear John. When a mysterious young woman arrives in a small North Carolina town, her reluctance to join the tight knit community raises questions about her past. Slowly, she begins putting down roots, and gains the courage to start a relationship with Alex, a widowed store owner with two young children. But dark secrets intrude on her new life with such terror that she is forced to rediscover the meaning of sacrifice and rely on the power of love in this deeply moving romantic thriller.

My Review:

I received the Blu-ray combo pack for Safe Haven that included a DVD.  Since I don't have a Blu-ray I can't comment on any features it has but I watched the movie on DVD with my husband.  Mind you, I'm not much into romance movies and neither is my husband but we both saw previews for this movie and thought it would be riveting. 

I can't compare Safe Haven to the book by Nicholas Sparks because I haven't read it, but after watching this movie I was quite impressed.  It stars Katie (played by Julianne Hough) who flees from her life in Boston to another place as a safe haven.  She meets up with Alex, a widower, and starts a relationship but she has troubles from her past that come back to haunt her.  Although romance is a big part of this movie, it's also filled with suspense and twists and turns.
