The Notebook

James Gardner and Gena Rowlands (the old people from the trailer) are the older Noah and Allie. Allie's fiancee lets her leave him for Noah, knowing she still loves Noah. In the present day, Older Allie cannot remember anything about their past because she has Alzheimer's. Noah reads their story from a notebook that was written by Allie as a present to Noah. Whenever she remembers the story, she only remembers for 5 minutes, which forces him to read to her constantly. In the end, Allie remembers Noah and they die in their sleep together holding each other's hand. All together now, awwwwwww.......

Lifesava

Revealing mistake: When Noah and Allie meet outside the movie theatre and later dance in the intersection of the streets, the viewer can see their breath. It is very cold outside and Noah is wearing a heavy jacket. Summer in South Carolina is oppressively hot, even at night. (00:17:00)

Noah: My Dearest Allie. I couldn't sleep last night because I know that it's over between us. I'm not bitter any more, because I know that what we had was real. And if in some distant place in the future we see each other in our new lives, I'll smile at you with joy and remember how we spent the summer beneath the trees, learning from each other and growing in love. The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more, that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds, and that's what you've given me. That's what I hope to give to you forever. I love you. I'll be seeing you. Noah.

Trivia: When Noah is driving back to Allie's house after Finn tells him she's left, Noah's car bangs into the fence. This wasn't supposed to happen; it was a mistake made by the actor (Ryan Gosling).
