Slush and secrets

OUT NOW! Yet another Nicholas Sparks novel is cinematised, but SAFE HAVEN's plot twists and turns fail to make the grade.

A girl on the run finds sanctuary in the quaint town of Southport. Taking on a new identity, Katie (Julianne Hough) begins to set up a new life. Here she meets handsome widower Alex (Josh Duhamel) and the pair begin to go through the motions. They go kayaking and kiss in the rain – she even charms his kids – but, just as the mush levels hit critical, the skeletons in Katie’s closet show up to crash the party.     

Safe Haven | Directed by Lasse Hallström (USA 2013) with Juianne Hough, Josh Duhamel. Starts March 7
