Mini Review - The Longest Ride

The Longest Ride (out Apr 9) is a Nicholas Sparks adaptation that follows two stories - (1) a young rodeo cowboy trying to win the heart of an art history student, and (2) an old man recounting the story of when he first met his wife. It’s too long and the ending doesn’t really stack up… but this will win the hearts of many with its fairy tale romance and sentimentality. Grade: B-.
