Critics Rating – 5.3 (10)

Year2014

Trailer

[Review]

I don’t think this is a Hallmark film but has the feel of one, which in my book is not a bad thing.

[Storyline]

Leveled seminar graduate David Swenson gently tries to coach his screw-up former classmate Casey Hart when a small town parish which engaged her as short-term interim loses its sick pastor, so she’s now on trial basis as ‘senior minister’.

The parish council has its doubts about her, especially elderly traditionalist pillar-biter Olivia Thompkins, who demands her dismissal when income drops due to theft and lesser donations. Instead of declaring her love for wonderful mentor David, she fakes a local relationship, driving him to start an affair with her best friend Cali, who finds out, so both feel betrayed. Still, David helped trap the thief, enabling surprising ways out for various parties, as by God’s mysterious ways.

Second instalment of the romantic trilogy with all you expect from this type of movie.

Autumn In The Vineyard

Rated – 54.0 (100)

DirectorScott Smith

Year2016

Trailer

[Review]

First in a trilogy. It’s a Hallmark movie so what do you seriously expect it to be like? It does star Rachael Leigh Cook though.

[Storyline]

When Frankie Baldwin and Nate Deluca both have a claim to ownership of Sorrento Farm, they are forced to divide the vineyard right down the middle and work the fields alongside each other to bring in the harvest leading up to the Best Wine competition at the annual Autumn Harvest Festival – only this rivalry won’t be settled in the fields, because in spite of their contentious bickering, the simplest way to settle this particular legal dispute is with a romance.
