The Longest Ride movie quotes bring the Nicholas Sparks romance novel of the same name for a big screen adaptation. Adapted by Craig Bolotin, the drama was directed by George Tillman, Jr. The Longest Ride opened in theaters in the United States on April 10, 2015.

In The Longest Ride, college student Sophia (Britt Robertson) attends a bull riding event with friends, a place completely out of her element. There, she meets bull rider Luke (Scott Eastwood) and the two instantly hit it off. Some time later, they come upon a car crash where they meet Ira (Alan Alda).

Sophia begins to spend time with Ira reading him love letters he once wrote to his love Ruth (Oona Chaplin). This exercise provides points of parallels between Sophia's relationship with Luke and Ira's with Ruth. As Ira explains, love takes work and sacrifice, something Sophia and Luke learn about first hand when both are at crossroads in their lives.

The Longest Ride joins theaters already showing a number of other great April 2015 films including Ex Machina, Furious 7, Cut Bank, Get Hard, and Home.
