Storyline

Brian Connor works as an executive in his family's San Francisco based multi-billion dollar tech business, Connor Tech. His focus on work looks to be the reason for the break-up with his fiancéee, Julie, he missing their engagement party for work being the last straw for her in their five-year relationship. To get away from the memory of Julie, Brian decides to head to Seabrook, Maine - just outside of Portland - to work his magic on a recently acquired web hosting company. Uncertain of how long he will be in New England, he decides to lease a place to live in downtown Portland rather than rent or stay in a hotel. Against Brian's upscale urban sensibility, the realtor, Keenan O'Dwyer, convinces him to buy what looks to be a vastly undervalued rural cottage just outside of Seabrook. He buys it despite it being neglected due to not having been lived-in in years and thus not move-in ready, and both O'Dwyer and the owner, Mr. Kilgore, seeming to be a bit too eager to wash their hands ...

A delightful story

The Edge of the Garden (2011)

Looking for a fun romantic fantasy for an evening together with a loved one.

Light and easy to follow has all the needed elements an unhappily married woman. A gardener who understands the stress of moving from the city to Maineand tries to help the wife emotionally deal with a demanding husband. A young urban professional who's new job takes him to Maine and purchases the Maine home nearly 50 years after the original couple had abandoned the home.

I think you would be delighted. Add to the fantasy a Maine ghostly mystery that transverses three generations and I think this movie will keep your attention.

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie.
