I knew Alexandar Pettyfar was British, but imagine my surprise when I watched the DVD extra and discovered that so was the female lead, the guy that played her brother and also the actress playing their mother.* This was a by-the-book romance that threw in a few surprises now and then.** Overall, a fine way to pass an afternoon, though it will be quickly forgotten.
Cost: free from library (a “why not?” selection)
Where watched: at home.
*I find Pettyfar’s American accent to be far into the “dumb jock” register to really like listening to him talk (see: this movie, Magic Mike) but the rest of the cast’s accents were flawless. Though certainly not Southern-by-way-of-Atlanta, where everyone was supposed to live.
**It is also apparently a remake of a 1981 movie of the same title starring Brooke Sheilds. The library does not have it, alas, but just the quick plot synopsis tells me that a significant number of details were changed.

It sounds a bit dramatic from the Wikipedia synopsis. I wonder why, if it was set in Atlanta, they chose all British actors for it? Did all the American actors suck?
Oh my god, so dramatic!
Yes, what’s up with all the American actors? Could they not bring it?
