A romantic drama about a soldier who falls for a conservative college student while he’s home on leave. Loosely based on the 2006 novel ‘Dear John’.
Dear John Movie Details
“Dear John” tells the story of John Tyree (Channing Tatum), a young soldier home on leave, and Savannah Curtis (Amanda Seyfried), the idealistic college student he falls in love with during her spring vacation.
Over the next seven tumultuous years, the couple is separated by John’s increasingly dangerous deployments. While meeting only sporadically, they stay in touch by sending a continuous stream of love letters overseas–correspondence that eventually triggers fateful consequences.
Why you care
Amanda Seyfried makes this movie watchable, and Channing Tatum will get the women riled up. Dear John could be the movie to see for Valentines day, as it has characters for the male and female audience to identify with.
