Director Mandoki's calm demeanor and smooth dialogue is the perfect compliment to the serene camera work of Caleb Descannel. I don't mean this track will put you to sleep. Quite the contrary, I was fully engaged the entire 2 hours. Great filmmaking insight, from actor relationships to locations and camera work. The track recalls Anthony Minghella's commentaries. Producer Di Novi pops in late into the proceedings (about 90 mins in) and contributes some behind the scenes info with regard to adapting/producing Nicholas Sparks' work. Great track 8/10
