'A Walk to Remember'- by Nicholas SparksIntroduction:'A walk to remember' is the 2002 inspirational love storey, directed by Adam Shankman and based on the novel written by Nicolas sparks .The film is about two people who unexpectedly fall in love with each other. It expresses how the power of faith and love can change people for the better. Landon was a trouble maker who didn't care about school until he met Jamie a shy outsider who is religious and intelligent. Throughout the movie their complicated relationship develops as we see them grow and change together. Many themes are portrayed in the movie such as Unrequited forbidden love, Hopelessness and Faith. The director has utilised quick cut shots, high camera angles and lighting to convey these themes.Paragraph 1:Unrequited love is portrayed in the scene where Landon tells Jamie that he loves her.
