A comfortable movie
29 December 2019 | by alishaebrahimnegadSee all my reviews

The thing I love most about this movie is how natural the acting is. Emily Osment just have this easy-going approachability thing about her. She seems so down to earth and delivers her lines and performance with such ease.

I like how Emily and Victoria Pratt interact with each other. They seem like a real mother & daughter duo that has a wonderful & healthy relationship. The way they talk to each other is so nice to watch. It makes the movie seem realistic and easy to view. Even though there are some heavy situations going on in the film, the daughter portrays strength & common sense and you just have faith that they're going to get through it. Emily's character is very savvy. Finally a character in a Lifetime movie that has a clue! I like the fact that this movie isn't too heavy and there are no scenes that make you roll your eyes due to "lifetime ridiculousness" (extreme over-acting of a character, plot holes, terrible camera work, flat acting) Although the villain is extremely annoying to me.

This is the perfect movie to relax on the couch with a blanket and some snacks. Not too exciting but definitely not ridiculous. Very much worth a watch! One of my favorites.
