Review: The Lucky One, (12A)
5:06pm Friday 4th May 2012 in Leisure
During a tour of duty in Iraq, Marine Sergeant Logan Thibault (Zac Efron) is ambushed by the enemy and several of his men are wounded or killed in the subsequent fire fight.
Logan escapes unscathed and as he catches his breath, he glimpses a photograph of a beautiful woman in the rubble.
When the Marine returns home, he travels to North Carolina to track down the woman in the snapshot.
She turns out to be Beth (Taylor Schilling), who works in a family-run kennel with her feisty grandmother, Ellie (Blythe Danner).
Before Logan can explain the reason for his visit, he agrees to help Beth with the animals and their bond deepens to the chagrin of her jealous ex-husband, Keith (Jay R Ferguson).
