It’s up to Leo to win back her heart … and her mind.

Exclusive to the Blu-rayTM Combo Pack are three behind-the-scenes featurettes: “’Til Death Do They Part,” a look at how the true-life story was made into the movie; “Profiles of Love: Paige and Leo,” which discusses what drew McAdams and Tatum to the project, as well as their perspectives on their characters and the film's themes; and “Trying to Remember,” explaining how trauma can affect memory.
Inspired by a true story, The Vow is the tale of a love that refuses to be forgotten. Leo (Channing Tatum, Dear John ) is devastated when a car accident plunges his wife Paige (Rachel McAdams, The Notebook ) into a deep coma. She miraculously recovers – but the last five years of her memories have vanished. Suddenly, Leo finds himself married to a stranger who can’t remember anything about him. Naively, Paige falls back under the influence of her controlling parents (Sam Neill and Jessica Lange) and reconnects with her ex-fiancé (Scott Speedman). Desperately, Leo tries to recreate the moments that shaped their romance. Can he rekindle the passion before he loses Paige forever?
