DEAR JOHN examines long distance relationships brought on by one partner being in the military. Long distance relationships of any kind require a reliance on strong communication and going through frequent bouts with loneliness. Doesn't sound like much fun, eh? The benefit though is a strong relationship if one perserveres.
This film also looks at people who are not considered normal in our society-particularly the autistic and the obsessive, reclusive types. The fast pace of our lives and our uncertainty on how to interact with these folks often leads us not to. This movie shows healthy ways we can be involved that are beneficial to both parties. Patience is key. For more on autism watch the special features on the dvd.
I give DEAR JOHN four out of five stars!
