Drama / Romance, Released in 2004, Starring Gena Rowlands, James Garner and Rachel McAdams.

An elderly man in a nursing home reads to a woman with Alzheimer’s. He tells her the story of  a poor young man before WWII who courts and falls in love with a rich girl, showing her a sense of freedom she has never known. When social differences separate them they go their separate ways, neither forgetting the other. After the war they find each other again, but can have they changed too much? Are they still too different to make things work?

 

I loved this, it was not at all what I had expected and I was touched by the whole story.
