Based on best—selling novelist Nicholas Sparks’ (“A Walk to Remember,” “The Notebook”) latest novel, THE LAST SONG is set in a small Southern beach town where an estranged father (GREG KINNEAR) gets a chance to spend the summer with his reluctant teenaged daughter (MILEY CYRUS), who’d rather be home in New York. He tries to reconnect with her through the only thing they have in common—music—in a story of family, friendship, secrets and salvation, along with first loves and second chances. The film is directed by Julie Anne Robinson from a screenplay by Sparks & Jeff Van Wie.

Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
So bad it makes The Notebook look like Casablanca.Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, 04.01.2010
For those wondering if the continuing popularity of such exercises might make this one worth the ticket price, the same effect might be achieved by writing names and obstacles (make some tragic) on index cards and tossing them in the air.Michael Ordona, Los Angeles Times, 06.24.2010
Years on the Hannah Montana TV series have not adequately prepared Miley Cyrus for screen acting, even in a vehicle as unchallenging as this adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks novel.Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader, 06.24.2010
Sadly, without a single note of originality, Last Song is an awfully long and tiresome tune.Bruce Demara, Toronto Star, 06.24.2010
