Storyline

When Jack gets rescued by Maria, a superstitious Portuguese beauty, he has no idea that his life and luck are both about to change. During this accidental "first date", Jack and Maria project idealistic images of themselves -- images that are humorously contradicted through a series of flash-forwards to their future life together. Written by from Facebook: A Date With Miss Fortune

A Date with Miss Fortune: Catching Title, Catching Movie.
24 March 2017 | by niutta-enricoSee all my reviews

A nice comedy, fresh, inspired, full of interesting ideas, with good dialogue (and small budget). You might not recognize the exteriors because it's not US but Canada (Toronto).

And the Actors playing the two main characters (Jack and Maria) are Canadians too. They also wrote the script and produced the movie, together, and truly are husband and wife in real life. Which is nice and interesting at the same time. As it is movie's flash-forward structure, which adds to production's overall quality and originality.

Many good actors help to keep the attention high, starting from the great Joaquin de Almeida (who really is Portuguese) to Vik Sahay. Singer Nelly Furtado plays a nice cameo (Nelia: Maria's favorite cousin…) and the musical score includes one piece I like and it's poorly known: 'Ticket to Love' from the Hawaiian band 'Goodbye Elliott'. Enjoy.
