From Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams in The Notebook to Josh Duhamel and Julianne Hough in Safe Haven, take a look back at how the author's bestselling novels translated to the big screen
Message in a Bottle
Love lost, love found. Theresa Osbourne (Robin Wright Penn) tracks down the author of a note she found written in a bottle, who turns out to be widower Garret Blake (Kevin Costner). This romantic drama opened in theaters on Feb. 12, 1999. Favorite movie quote: "If some lives form a perfect circle, others take shape in ways we cannot predict or always understand. Loss has been a part of my journey. But it has also shown me what is precious. So has a love for which I can only be grateful."
