It is supposed to be a remake of the 1981 film of the same title (Plot below) but based on the trailer, it looks like a modern day remake of “The Notebook” instead. Poor boy met rich girl and they fell in love… dad disapproves and all hell breaks loose for the poor guy. But that is based only on the trailer alone. Let’s just wait for another trailer to be released.

PLOT OF THE ORIGINAL MOVIE:

In suburban Chicago, teenagers Jade Butterfield and David Axelrod fall in love after they are introduced by Jade’s brother Keith. Jade’s family is known in their community for a bohemian lifestyle, allowing them to develop an all-consuming and passionate relationship; including allowing the two to make love in Jade’s bedroom. In contrast to the openness of her family, David’s home life is dull; his parents are wealthy political activists who are not actively involved in his life.

One night Jade’s mother Ann sneaks downstairs, and upon seeing Jade and David make love in her living room, starts living through them vicariously. Jade’s father, Hugh, watches the couple with increasing unease. Soon Jade realizes her regular sexual encounters with David are depriving her of sleep and adversely affecting her grades at school. Eventually, she tries to steal a sleeping pill in order to get some sleep, but her father catches her in the act. Subsequently, he insists David stop seeing Jade until the end of the school term in 30 days. Although David is heavily opposed to this idea, Ann gently coaxes him into agreeing, telling him not to let Hugh “do something he’ll regret.”

One of David’s friends jokingly suggests kidnapping Jade to get her back or burning down the Butterfield house in revenge. Another friend Billy, then tells David that when he was 8-years-old he tried burning a pile of newspapers and after he became scared, put the fire out, only to find his parents think he was a hero for saving the house from burning. Inspired by this story, David starts a fire on the Butterfields’ front porch and walks away briefly to be seen returning to the flame. By the time he returns, the flame has spread too far and he rushes to warn the family but he is too late, the entire house is lost.

Following the trial for arson, David is sent to a mental hospital for the next two years and is forbidden from ever going near Jade or her family again. Nevertheless, he continues to write daily, but his letters are held and never mailed. He receives them upon his exit, learning for the first time why Jade never wrote back, thus renewing his spark to pursue her.

When David is released on probation, he goes to look for Jade and remains in love with her. In the meantime, following the loss of their home, the Butterfield family has moved from Chicago to Manhattan, and Ann and Hugh divorce. In Manhattan, Ann tries to seduce David, but he refuses and tells her he can make love only with Jade. In a chance meeting, Hugh sees David on the streets of Manhattan and while chasing David, Hugh is hit by a car and killed. Hugh’s new girlfriend Ingrid Orchester, catches up to the scene and cannot put together what just happened, but later recognizes David as having been present at the accident.

Later, Jade goes to see David to say goodbye but he pulls her back as she tries to leave, throwing her on the bed and begging for her to admit she still loves him. Jade does, and resumes her relationship with him. When Keith tells the couple to come downstairs, he tells Jade that David is at fault for their father’s death. Jade refuses to believe this and turns to David for the truth. He tries to explain it was an accident, but Keith fights with David until the police arrive and arrest David.

Sent to prison, David seems doomed never to see Jade again. Jade tells her mother that no one will ever love her the way David does. The final scene shows Jade walking toward the prison where David is being held.

SEASON 1

The show is based on the theory that there is an alternate universe where every classic fairy tale character exists – a world that has a loose connection to Our World. On the night of her 28th birthday, bail bonds collector Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) is reunited with Henry Mills (Jared S. Gilmore) – the son she gave up for adoption ten years ago – and takes him back to his hometown of Storybrooke, Maine – a place where nothing is what it seems.

OUATS3.5

Henry has in his possession a large book of fairytales and is convinced that Emma is the daughter of Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas) who sent her away so she would be protected from a powerful curse enacted by the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla), a curse in which she is the only one with a happy ending. It’s because of the curse that everyone in Storybrooke is frozen in time with no memories of their former selves – except for the Queen, who is Storybrooke’s mayor and Henry’s adoptive mother Regina Mills. Emma refuses to believe a word of Henry’s “theory” and returns Henry home, but then decides to remain in the New England town…and causes the hands of the clock tower to move for the first time in 28 years.

OUATS3.6

It’s soon revealed that Snow and Charming concerned for the safety of their unborn child went to seek advice from the imprisoned trickster Rumplestiltskin (Robert Carlyle), who told them their only hope is the child, who would return on her 28th birthday and begin “The Final Battle”. The child, an infant girl, is born on the day the Queen enacts her curse and is placed in a wardrobe carved out of an enchanted tree which takes the child to Our World, where she is raised by adoptive parents as Emma Swan.

OUATS3.7

As Emma stays in Storybrooke and soon becomes Sheriff following the sudden death of Graham Humbert (Jamie Dornan), Regina’s antagonistic attitude raises her suspicions and prompt her to move in with Henry’s teacher Mary Margaret Blanchard who is really her mother Snow White. Regina’s bitter rivalry with Storybrooke’s wealthiest resident Mr. Gold becomes heated when she learns he is aware of his true identity as Rumplestiltskin and Mary Margaret falls in love with David Nolan, a patient awake after being in a coma who is in reality Emma’s father Prince Charming. David however is married to Kathryn Nolan, the woman who is his ex-fiancee Princess Abigail daughter to King Midas. Unable to deny their love, David and Mary Margaret soon begin a secret relationship that becomes public and upsets Kathryn.

OUATS3.4

Kathryn eventually decides to go to Boston and let David be with Mary Margaret only to disappear before leaving Storybrooke, due to an effect of the Curse being no one can leave. Some time later an antique jewelry box which belonged to Mary Margaret when she was a child is found buried near the old Toll Bridge and is revealed to contain a human heart which is proven to be Kathryn’s via DNA testing. Mary Margaret is arrested for Kathryn’s supposed murder and is about to be prosecuted by corrupt District Attorney Albert Spencer (Alan Dale) when Kathryn is found alive in an alley. She reveals that someone abducted her and held her captive in a basement for several days but she managed to escape. When corrupt Daily Mirror chief editor Sidney Glass (Giancarlo Esposito) confesses to having abducted Kathryn in order to jump-start his career, Emma is not convinced and comes to the conclusion that Regina orchestrated the conspiracy.

OUATS3.3

Emma soon discovers that writer August W. Booth (Eion Bailey), who is the first stranger ever to arrive in town after she did, is from the Other World and that he is Pinocchio, who was sent to Our World through the same wardrobe that brought Emma to watch over her. But he abandoned her out of fear and is slowly turning back into a wooden puppet. Emma then makes an attempt to take Henry out of Storybrooke forever, but is then forced to reconsider when he refuses to go. Emma makes a deal with Regina in which she leaves but still visits Henry on occasion.

But Regina knows Emma’s true identity and has retrieved her Poisoned Apple the same one she used on Snow White in order to use it on Emma in the form of an apple turnover. Henry takes a bite of the turnover, collapses to the floor unconscious and proves to Emma the Curse is real. Emma, who now starts to believe after seeing flashbacks of her true past, is forced to forge an alliance with Regina and retrieves Rumplestiltskin’s True Love Potion from underneath the Clock Tower only to have Mr. Gold steal it leaving Emma halfway up the elevator shaft and Regina tied to a chair and gagged.

OUATS3.8

When Henry is pronounced dead, Emma and Regina return to the Hospital to say goodbye to his body. Emma kisses him on the forehead, causing a pulse of energy to engulf the entire town and restore everyone’s true memories while freeing Henry from the effects of the Poisoned Apple. Snow and Charming reunite with each other and Regina returns to her mansion alone as Emma begins to wonder why no one is returning to the Other World since the Curse is broken. Rumplestiltskin reunites with his true love Belle (Emilie de Ravin) and takes her to a Wishing Well deep in the heart of the forest a well with the power to restore that which one had lost. He takes the potion and drops it into the well, causing a purple cloud to emerge and consume Storybrooke as the Clock Tower strikes 8:15.
