The romantic, wistful writing of celebrated author Nicholas Sparks is on display in this quartet of films in one collection: Richard Gere and Diane Lane get cozy during a damaging storm in 'Nights in Rodanthe'; Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams play a young and tempestuous pairing of James Garner and Gena Rowlands in the bittersweet 'The Notebook'; Kevin Costner and Paul Newman are a grieving son and father who make room for love with Robin Wright Penn in 'Message in a Bottle'; and Shane West and Mandy Moore are a rebel and a sweet preacher's daughter who find romance in 'A Walk to Remember.'

Special Features in 'The Notebook' include deleted and alternate scenes, filmmaker commentary with director Nick Cassavetes and Sparks, a Rachel McAdams screen test and such featurettes as "All In the Family: Nick Cassavetes," "Nicholas Sparks: A Simple Story, Well Told," "Casting Rachel & Ryan" and "Southern Exposure: Locating 'The Notebook.'" 'Message in a Bottle' contains special features including filmmaker commentary and deleted scenes. And 'A Walk To Remember' special features include filmmaker commentary and the Mandy Moore Music Video "Cry."
