User Reviews

Genuinely sad, happy, funny, feel good and heart grabbing...great family viewing
19 November 2020 | by lsayadSee all my reviews

This film is modern & warm but somewhat star-crossed love story, sure to capture your heart & emotions. The lead characters Belle & Josh are from two totally opposite incompatible worlds. Jenn Gotzon does a masterful performance of the hardworking fashion model Belle Winters & takes the viewer through a range of emotions from sadness & disappointment to hysterical laughter. Her acting is heartfelt & genuine & she adds many moments of truly funny comic relief. Jim Chandler (Josh) Belle's childhood penpal provides a masterful & patient counter balance to the more vivacious personality of Belle Winters character. He captures and pulls the viewer into the lonely longing and emotions of tragic love lost. I felt his sadness, loneliness, longing & happy triumphs along with him. The film has a nice "happily ever after" ending and left me in happy tears and elated joy. Its a wonderful family film for yearly Christmas viewing.
