1809, France. Captain Neuville is called to the front, leaving his future bride heartbroken. Her sister decides to write letters on his behalf to cheer her up. But it all goes south when Neuville reappears.
Although the initial synopsis sounded intresting on a psychological level, the movie very quickly showed lack of character depth and back-up stories as well as stereotypes : the two main sister characters are just very caricatural in their exhuberant&successful VS introvert&envious dynamic. There are huge narrative ellipses that make it quite hard to give credit to the development of the storyline. And last but not least, this movie borrows a great deal from "Always Shine", a 2016 movie directed by Sophia Takal and starring Caitlin Fitzgerald. So it definitely feels like a "deja vu".
