Mini Review - Dear John

Dear John (out Mar 4) is spread across a number of years and is about a young soldier's (Channing Tatum) relationship with his autistic father (Richard Jenkins) and his first true love (Amanda Seyfried). Jenkins is amazing. His performance brought a tear to my eye. I was a little bored though by the war and "letter writing" sequences. From the same author of The Notebook and I can see the similarities. Grade: B.
