‘Endless Love’ exceeds expectations of audience

“Endless Love” is the quintessence of the typical boy meets girl, boy and girl fall in love, girl’s father disapproves movie, but to the extreme.

David Elliot (Alex Pettyfer) has waited all of high school to confess his love to the wealthy, nerdy girl who has kept to herself all four years.  The summer after graduation, Jade Butterfield (Gabriella Wilde) and her family arrive at the country club where David works, and they instantly fall in love.  They spend the majority of their time together, and Jade’s father (Bruce Greenwood) strongly dislikes his innocent daughter’s love for the boy from the wrong side of the tracks.  Mr. Butterfield’s disapproval quickly turns into a manipulative rage when he discovers David’s dark past.

I quickly found myself intrigued in the love between David and Jade.  Although it has a totally predictable storyline and a mediocre soundtrack, the movie is entertaining for not only young teen girls, but all ages; it also helps that the lead actors are easy on the eye.  The high energy attraction between the young lovers sparks a flow of emotional memories unique to each viewer.  “Endless Love” is a must see for every lover of love.
