Happy New Year Everyone!!! And it seems like Hallmark is having a hard time shedding its old skin again with this new movie Where Your Heart Belongs starring Jen Lilley and Christopher Russell.
I am not going to lie. I didn't like this movie. It felt like the hope that Christmas movies brought with it that there will be new tropes, new actors, POC as leads not just supporting, is false. Here we are again with the same old trope of big city girl coming home to meet her childhood crush, falls in love and stays in her small town. Oh and did I forget to add everyone is white except maybe three people in the movie.
Yeah. I think this is Jen's last movie with Hallmark. She's definitely feeling very gungho about GAC. More power to you. But yeah, this movie was disappointing.
