Very watchable and pleasant way to spend an evening
Steve Lund is good as Sean Payton, the son of a millionaire businessman trying for the last 10 years to avoid working for his forceful businessman father. Michael Kopsa is excellent in this role and when people call him Mr Payton, it is as if they wouldn't dare to call him William to his face.
Siobhan Williams plays protestor Alisson Johnson, who is active against the Paytons' scheme to level a park. Yes, she comes over well as being bruised and vulnerable, but I really struggled to find any chemistry between her and Sean. Perhaps it is because he is much taller than her, making interactions difficult?
On the other hand, Elise Gatien is convincing as the predatory female Candice, with matching body language showing she finds Sean attractive. There is a nice little twist near the end when we find out what her true motives are.
A distraction to the main flow of the plot is Alisson's housemate Beth (played by Allie Bertram) trying to make her mind up between the reliable Caden (played by Adam DiMarco) and the charming Pascal (played by Ben Sullivan).
I found Jaime Callica as Sean's best friend Jared to come over as not being serious enough for someone like Sean. Did like the scene where Alisson's boss Antonia (played by Karen Holness) lays into Sean. Yes, bosses do that.
However, for me, the best part of the film is the last 10 minutes where the father-son relationship and their motivations are explored, which brings the various strands of the film neatly together.
Overall, a very watchable and pleasant Hallmark film.
