Having long forgone her aspirations to become a professional actress due to personal circumstances, Amelia Tate of Bend, Oregon, on the urging of her younger sister Kathryn Tate, applies to the worldwide open casting call for an unknown, and is offered the role of Princess Anna in the highly anticipated remake of Roman Holiday (1953) with movie star Jonathan Lyman as the male lead in the role of the journalist. Information of who has been cast as the female lead is kept under wraps until the press junket begins, and as such Amelia has to keep a low profile in Rome and on social media until that first press conference. Meanwhile, American freelance journalist Philip Hamilton, in Italy for a year working on his first novel, has to work several jobs, including hotel porter and waiter, to make ends meet.

can't measure up
10 August 2019 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Kathryn Tate sees that Roman Holiday is being remade and convinces her sister Amelia (Italia Ricci) to audition. She is paired with movie star Jonathan Lyman but her identity is kept secret for the promotion. Philip Hamilton (Peter Porte) has writer's block and meets Amelia.

Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck are big stars to aspire for. The targets are too high and this movie never gets close. Ricci is a fine Hallmark actress but it's unfair to have the comparison. The guys are worst. The Rome locations are great but they're not shot that well. Most egregious is the missing Mouth of Truth. I'm guessing that they won't let Hallmark film there. Instead of being about a Roman Holiday remake, it should be a fan girl's movie odyssey. That way, it can pay homage to the classic without having to be compared to it. This could never get a sense of the old film and the media circus comes off fake. Non of this has the substance that the classic film deserves.
