The Vow tells the story of a newlywed couple whose life is thrown into disarray when a car accident places the wife–played by Rachel McAdams of The Notebook and Sherlock Holmes–in a coma. Waking up with severe memory loss, her husband–Channing Tatum of Dear John and G.I.Joe: The Rise of Cobra–endeavors to win her heart again.
“She’s an artist when we meet her. She’s kind of bohemian and has edgy musical friends. But what she remembers is being in law school, close to her family and engaged to an attorney,” said Sucsy in an promotional on-set interview of what he finds most compelling about Rachel McAdams’ character. “It’s that choose-your-own adventure thing in life, where you go left or you go right.”
Sucsy previously wrote and directed the HBO telefilm Grey Gardens about Jackie Onassis’ eccentric relatives ‘Big Edie’ Bouvier Beale and ‘Little Edie’ Bouvier Beale.
