In 2010, Miley Cyrus starred in the film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ novel “The Last Song.” In the film, she plays Ronnie Miller, an angsty teenager who wants nothing to do with anyone and has become something of a troublemaker. Ronnie and his younger brother (Bobby Coleman) move to the Georgian coast for the summer in an effort to reconnect with their father, Steve (Greg Kinnear). Although she and Steve are only chefs, they find one thing they have in common: a love of music. Meanwhile, Ronnie bumps into the cute resident, the ever-popular Will (Liam Hemsworth). After a night spent befriending sea turtles, the couple embark on a whirlwind summer romance.
“The Last Song” is a Sparks classic, with a somewhat melodramatic plot that unfolds over an hour and a half, peppers with very lighthearted moments, plenty of aesthetic shots of beaches, and romantic sunsets to get you in the mood. the mood for a holiday. It’s a coming-of-age drama that may not be loved by Rotten Tomatoes critics, whose combined ratings put it at 20% approval, but audiences loved it, him. awarding a score of 65%.
“The Last Song” may not have been the best movie of all time, but it did well at the box office, grossing $90 million worldwide (via Box Office Mojo). Cyrus’ star power as a child actor turned A-list celebrity probably helped bring people to the theater. It’s an interesting movie to see Cyrus transition from “Hannah Montana” into a more serious, slightly more grown-up role. It’s even more interesting to watch the movie knowing that it’s where Cyrus and Hemsworth began their whirlwind romance, falling in love on set and embarking on a long relationship and later, a short-lived marriage (via Cosmopolitan).
