When beautiful Jade meets charismatic David, her sheltered world of privilege turns upside down when the pair’s instant desire sparks a reckless summer love affair.

But when David’s mysterious past and Jade’s overprotective father threaten to tear them apart, their romance will be put to the ultimate test.
The Bottom Line
If you're a sucker for romances, then Endless Love is bound to grab you right from the get-go. This is the second time this book has been adapted to film, and although it didn't wow at the box office Endless Love has a lot to offer. At first glance it's a classic teen romance story with class boundaries dividing the helpless lovers - if you're a fan of classic teen movies, it might remind you a little of the John Hughes classic Pretty in Pink, but with less humor and quite a bit more mystery. It's guilty of many of the clichés that teen romances usually fall back on - angry, snobby parents, jealous exes and a BFF that won't stop reminding our hero that they're from two different worlds - but despite that Endless Love has some new twists on old ideas and manages to take a well-worn concept of the teen love fairy tale and add new life. In addition, it's is so beautifully shot that you have to forgive them for relying on some sappy love clichés.
It's well worth rewatching on days that you're feeling a little sentimental, and for true fans blu-ray has a couple of nice add-ons to keep the experience going - like including the "Extended Ending" and "Deleted Scenes" in the extras. A great movie for a rainy day when you want to take in some lush imagery and great dramatic story.
