Trivia

Wolf developed all of the original songs in the film with Brett Boyett and Jackson Odell two years before shooting commenced. She worked with them on spec without telling anyone else what she was doing, then as a surprise, she brought all of the songs with a live band into a development meeting with the production company, and the band played all of the songs for the film in their conference room with Wolf setting up each song and where it would go in the film. All went well. The film, which had already been greenlit at the time but did not have a start date for production, then had a start date after that meeting. Brett Boyett was hired as Wolf's music producer, and all of those same songs are in the film. Wolf said that she did it that way because it is very hard to pitch an audible visual and that she knew how important the country music would be for this particular film. She felt that the music was equally as important as the film, and that she wanted to develop both as she went through preproduction, production, and post. She felt it was something that the production company needed to see/hear rather than Wolf trying to explain in mere words how vital she felt that it was; she wanted to show them and not just tell them. She didn't tell anyone because she new that it was an unconventional, bold thing that she was planning to do, but that she felt in her soul that it was going to all land the right way and be an empowering, transformative experience.

a blanket of some type
19 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

Greetings again from the darkness. To determine if this is your type of movie, you need only answer one question: Are you a Nicholas Sparks fan? Even though this is based on a novel by Heidi McLaughlin and not Nicholas Sparks, no normal person would be able to tell the difference, as the formula and story structure is very familiar (even the marketing campaign capitalizes on this). Perhaps that is the key to the success of movies like this - the stories are like a warm, comfy blanket to some folks.

Picturesque (and fictional) St Augustine, Louisiana is the setting for the love story of Liam and Josie. Things get off to a rocky start as the jilted bride is stranded on her wedding day. The film jumps ahead 8 years and we find that Liam (Alex Roe, THE 5TH WAVE) is now a country music superstar with a drinking problem and a duct-taped flip phone, while Josie (Jessica Rothe, HAPPY DEATH DAY) is a successful business owner and single mom. It's at this point where you could most assuredly guess what happens next, as predictability and commitment to the formula are the mission.

Bethany Ashton Wolf is the writer/director and her film benefits from the presence of star-in-the-making Alex Roe and the precocious Abby Ryder Fortson as Josie's daughter. Mr. Roe spends much of the movie in various stages of sweat (I guess that's supposed to be sexy?), but the camera loves him and he has a unique approach that sets him apart from the endless line of pretty boy actors. Young Miss Fortson has already played the daughter of ANT-MAN and she has the ability to come off as normal kid, rather than an actress playing a kid.

John Benjamin Hickey (Liam's dad), Gillian Vigman (publicist), Tyler Riggs (Josie's brother), and Peter Cambor (Liam's agent) fill the supporting roles, and it's Travis Tritt who adds an all-too-brief touch of authenticity to the music and local saloon. The movie is exactly what it portends to be ... nothing more, nothing less. If it's to your taste, it'll be that soft comforter that brings you serenity. If it's not your style, it will likely be as itchy and scratchy as a new wool horse blanket.
