The Lucky One Synopsis
Zac Efron stars with Taylor Schilling and Blythe Danner in the romantic drama The Lucky One, directed by Academy Award®-nominated writer/director Scott Hicks (Shine), based on Nicholas Sparks' bestseller The Lucky One.

U.S. Marine Sergeant Logan Thibault (Efron) returns from his third tour of duty in Iraq, with the one thing he credits with keeping him alive—a photograph he found of a woman he doesn't even know. Discovering her name is Beth (Schilling) and where she lives, he shows up at her door, and ends up taking a job at her family-run local kennel. Despite her initial mistrust and the complications in her life, a romance develops between them, giving Logan hope that Beth could be much more than his good luck charm.

Director Scott Hicks Talks Wish Fulfillment In The Lucky One Director Scott Hicks Talks Wish Fulfillment In The Lucky One
It’s not exactly hard to figure out why women enjoy reading and/or watching Nicholas Sparks stories. The man’s books freely tap into women’s most romantic fantasies where the man walks thousands of miles to be with his love and all passionate kisses must be done outside in the pouring rain. But is the wish fulfillment aspect of Nicholas Sparks’ stories something that filmmakers recognize and implement while crafting their adaptations?

Even though The Notebook hit theaters in 2004 and made a killing at the box office (to the tune of $81 million domestically on a $29 million budget), it took four years before the next Nicholas Sparks adaptation came around. Since 2008, however, they've been coming fairly regularly, with Nights in Rodanthe, Dear John and The Last Song all making their way into theaters over the past three years.
