Quotes

Sidney Stark: We have to write about them.
Juliet Ashton: I can't. I promised I wouldn't.
Sidney Stark: I realize that Juliet. But this is your story to tell. As sure as I am sitting here. And you will not be right until you do... Now, Elizabeth for better or worse, couldn't help but follow her heart. You must do the same.
Juliet Ashton: I am afraid. What if I am not a good enough writer?
Sidney Stark: She doubts. She doesn't believe. She craves being taken seriously, but then, she won't do that for herself.

Kidding, this was truly such a hidden gem, someone recommended i watch it and i did, now i can't be more grateful. It's one of those films you find yourself still thinking about days after watching, i find myself tearing up a couple of times throughout the film, which is something i haven't done this entire year. Filled with charming and lovable characters, shot in a beutiful island with beautiful scenery, heartwarming story about love, family and friendship, now i find myself tempted to read the novel just to spend more time with those characters, i feel like a mini series formula would have been better for this adoptation of the novel though, rather than a 2 hours movie which leaves you just wanting more. Anyway, i highly recommend this if you are tired of all the blockbuster movies like me and just want a simple light hearted movie to enjoy.
