‘The Choice’ Will Get You Thinking this Valentine’s Day


“The Choice” is a dramatic love story that begins when feisty medical student Gabby Holland moves in next door to perennial ladies’ man Travis Shaw. They embark on a surprising romantic journey neither imagined possible. Travis has always believed a serious relationship would cramp his easygoing lifestyle, while Gabby is preparing to settle down with her long-term boyfriend—until an irresistible attraction between the unlikely couple upends both of their well-planned lives.

Spanning a decade and tracing the evolution of a love affair that is ultimately tested by life’s most defining events, this story features a memorable ensemble of friends and family in Sparks’s beloved North Carolina setting, culminating with the question that every couple must ask themselves:  how far would you go to keep the hope of love alive?  Sounds like the perfect question to be asking yourself this time of year, right?

Just in time for Valentine’s Day weekend, Dirty Water Media Reporter Kayla Harrity sits down with the beautiful stars of Nicolas Sparks’ most recent love story turned movie.  “The Choice” stars Benjamin Walker, as Travis, and Teresa Palmer, who plays Gabby, were in Boston recently to promote the new film which opened on Friday.  The Choice is the perfect “date night” movie for Valentine’s Day weekend because it prompts the audience to think about the ones they love and never let a moment go by with out telling them that you love them.
