It’s the ‘if-you-didn’t-bawl-your-eyes-out-then-your-heart-is-stone-cold’ romantic classic.
But fans of The Notebook have been left reeling after Netflix appears to have slightly altered the ending.
The 2004 romantic drama stars Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling, who play young lovers Noah and Allie. Noah Calhoun and Allie Hamilton fall in love in 1940s America. But Allie is part of a very privileged family, while Noah comes from a humble background.
So it takes years of ups and downs, before the couple finally reunite in one of the most epic moments on screen ever.
But it’s the end of the movie, where Noah is telling Allie about their love story – because she suffers from Dementia – that really tugs at the heart strings.
And now one final heart-wrenching moment is no more, diehard fans have been left “fuming”.
Instead of Allie and Noah passing away together after she finally remembers their love story, Netflix UK’s version finishes instead with the pair holding hands and some birds flying over a lake, before the closing credits hit the screen, The Sun reports.
The real ending to the epic tale, it seems, was not needed.
But viewers have called the streaming service out for ruining the iconic film.
