The Last Song~

    Ok I know yet another review.... But please bear with me for once more as this is the last review I've got in hand for now. In the mean time, here is the synopsis of the story.

    At seventeen, Veronica "Ronnie" Miller (Miley Cyrus) remains as rebellious as she was the day after her parents' ugly divorce and father's subsequent relocation to Georgia three years ago. Once a classical piano child prodigy under the tutelage of her father, Steve Miller (Greg Kinnear), Ronnie now rejects the instrument and has not spoken to her father since he left. While Juilliard School has been interested in her since she was young, Ronnie refuses to attend.
    Now, Steve is given the chance to reconnect with his estranged daughter when her mother, Kim (Kelly Preston) sends the rebellious teen and her younger brother, Jonah (Bobby Coleman), to spend the summer with him. Steve, a former Juilliard School professor and concert pianist, now lives a quiet life in Tybee Island, the small Georgia beach town where he grew up, working on a stained glass window for the local church to replace the one the church lost in a fire.
    Upon arrival, Ronnie is miserable, hostile and defensive toward all those around her, including handsome, popular Will Blakelee (Liam Hemsworth) – until, after both she and Will become involved in protecting a Loggerhead Sea Turtle nest, she discovers he is deeper than she believed. As Ronnie falls in love with Will, she also manages to form a better, stronger bond with her father. As their relationship deepens, her father collapses with a coughing fit one day. Ronnie immediatley takes Steve to the hospital to realize that he had been diagnosed with cancer long before her summer visit. She decides to start spending more time with her father since he is not likely to live much longer. Around the same time Ronnie and Will get into a fight. And then Will leaves for college so there is no time to patch things up.
    Steve has been working on a piece of music for quite a while, being the composer that he is. Fall comes and Jonah has to return to New York for the school year but Ronnie stays behind to take care of her father. Leading a slow life she tries to fill the three years of ignoring her father into a couple months. Finally, Steve's death comes along and Ronnie is heartbroken.

    At his funeral she stands up to make a speech but declares that none of the speeches she wrote would ever be able to show how wonderful her father is. Instead, she finishes up the piece of music her father had been writing but never finished during his life.
    After the funeral while Ronnie is talking to the attendants, she runs into Will. The two have a conversation and end up patching everything up. At the end of the movie Ronnie tells Will that she will be attending Juilliard for the second semester. Will surprises Ronnie by revealing that he will be transferring to Columbia the second semester also.

     Well that was the story mainly about. Kinda similar to "A Walk to Remember" in certain ways yet still the story is nice!! 2 THUMBS UP!! XD 

    Kinda liked the way the couples came together as the story unfolded little by little though the reactions of both Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth was kinda off abit at times. Nice story and certainly a must watch movie! 

    Those thinking of a movie to watch, go look for this movie and watch it!!
