A young woman receives a letter that her deceased grandmother requests she hand-deliver to a man in her grandmother's childhood home in Maine. She begins a journey of discovery of her grandmother, herself, and quality of life.
Ellen, a New York lawyer, and her pre-engagement boyfriend Hayden, a politician, are perfect together on paper, but she still has not given him an answer to his proposal of marriage. Ellen and her maternal grandmother Ruth have always had a special bond, they going on unusual adventures together, something that Ellen's more conservative mother, Cynthia, has never understood. The last words Ruth said to Ellen before she passed away was for Ellen to hand deliver a letter for her, it addressed to a Chet Cumberfield in Beacon, Maine, where, as Ellen just learns, Ruth was born and grew up, Chet of who Ellen and Cynthia had never heard. Ellen has no hesitation in obliging her grandmother's last request, it a task which she believes will take two days at the most, her return to New York when she will give Hayden an answer. Ellen makes a literal and figurative big splash upon her arrival in Beacon, that event which will forever tie her to a local contractor named Roy in the minds of Beacon ...Written by
I'd forgotten how much I adored Marc Blucas. (I'm familiar with him from his days on Buffy.) He plays a great sweet romance lead. He comes across as the kind of guy you love to love =) This was an enjoyable, heart-warming film in a cozy, small-town setting with solid acting. I'd watch more like this is a heartbeat. I'd love to see him in a Hallmark cozy mystery as a romantic lead. One can hope...
