    Had another look at the Notebook last night. Garner is pretty much single-handedly responsible for elevating the film out of TV movie of the week territory (it’s an unfortunate reminder of Gosling’s shortcomings as a leading man). That look of visceral anger mixed with grief on Garner’s face when Rowlands digresses before his eyes temporarily makes the movie taste raw and real.
