Britt Robertson is a sweet marvel in The Longest Ride. We’ve always loved her, especially as the innocent and intriguing Cassie Blake in The Secret Circle. And now it’s great to see her here in a beautifully layered performance that is sure to capture everyone’s heart, as she plays the role of Sophia Danko in The Longest Ride, a beautiful and touching romance based on the bestselling novel by Nicholas Sparks.
The Longest Ride also features Scott Eastwood as Luke, Oona Chaplin as the young Ruth, Jack Huston as the young Ira, and the legendary Alan Alda as Ira Levinson. But it is Britt Robertson who grabs our attention and holds our interest throughout this film, as we follow along with her on her emotional journey. As wonderful as she was in The Secret Circle, Britt Robertson takes The Longest Ride and comes out a winner. And we can’t wait for so much more from her.
