I found this to be a long, unlikely and frankly unlikable romance. The character of John was so emotionally detached, not to mention just quiet, that the romance was pretty unbelievable for me. The fact that they were supposed to have this deep connection after two weeks of barely talking or getting to know each other just made roll my eyes. I did appreciate the autism-related connections in the film (as I usually do due to my son's autism). This was not The Notebook by a long shot.
