Audiences miss what makes Luke a real person. The introduction to this love story is the only one the film got right. The two love stories collide when Luke and Sophia rescue Ira from his car after it spun off the highway on a rainy night. Ira is much older when the two find him, and he urges Sophia to retrieve a box from his passenger side seat before the car explodes.
The wicker box was filled with letters Ira had written to his beloved, late Ruth throughout their marriage. The letters were a portal Ira used to transport himself back to his longest ride — his life with Ruth.
Of course, the story cannot be told on screen like it is in the book — each chapter from the view of one character. But this is another area where the movie loses the essence of the novel. The point Spark makes in his book is that love transcends through time and there will always be sacrifices.
Ira and Ruth and Luke and Sophia are similar in the fact that both the man and woman come from different worlds. Ira, in the film and book, loves what his wife adores.

The Longest Ride TV Movie Trailer
Wanting to reach the pinnacle of success and surpass the legend of his father in order to earn enough winnings and endorsements to keep the family ranch, Luke is the salt of the earth. We first meet him when he is thrown from the most vicious bull on the rodeo circuit, Rango, and quickly jump ahead in time to him trying to re-ignite his career. His journey back from the life threatening accident plays out during the course of the film.
And of course, he does more than a double take when he sees her. As old-fashioned romance ensues — Luke brings flowers to Sophia on their first date, he does the asking instead of her, he takes her on an afternoon turned moonlit evening lakeside picnic — but not without some trouble. Sophia determines to stay at the hospital with the man while Luke takes off.

With a casual ease, he commands the screen with few words. He sits a horse or a bull with easy confidence. His charismatic masculinity infused with a gentility melts the heart while his blue eyes will make every woman go weak in the knees. Brit Robertson is more than a match for Eastwood, but beyond Eastwood, she delights when playing opposite Alan Alda. Bringing a determined freshness to Sophia, she lights up the screen and is particularly effective when placed in freeing exterior settings.
And when with Alda, the chemistry is tender, poignant and very familial.
