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 fiancée, 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 ...

50 years between them but somehow they share this space
22 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

This was really good for a made-for-TV production. I've actually seen it a couple of times now and I just love the time travel/ghost element. It's along the lines of the classic heartbreaker 'Somewhere In Time', Hallmarks 'The Love Letter' or even 'The Lake House'. With decent acting, and a clever, well thought out story containing elements of mystery, suspense and romance.

The story follows a newly single workaholic (Rob Estes) who buys a rundown cottage in Maine where he encounters the ghost of a woman (or so he thinks) who used to live there in the 1960s. As the two form a friendship, they realize that somehow they are sharing the same space even though there is 50 years between them. 'Brian' then becomes determined to change her fate.

This was just all-round better than most TV movies; not cheesy and with attention paid to the set decorating and (60's) period detail (clothing, hairstyles, kitchen knick-knacks, cars etc.) These things usually get overlooked in the made for TV stuff. The setting is also beautiful, the house and garden which play a huge role here.

This is definitely a story that haunts you for a few days afterwards (I may have even shed a tear) the only real issue I had was the sometimes too loud background/theme music. 5/25/15

*Langley BC as Maine.
