Dove Review

**This review is contributed by Super Channel—a channel dedicated to providing integrity and accountability in today’s entertainment.

Erica, (Courtney Ford), returns to her small hometown for the first time since her husband, Seth was killed in combat to attend her sister April’s wedding. Overcome with many different emotions, she is reminded of Seth and is told about the beautiful bench dedicated in his memory to be erected in the town park. When she and Nate (Ryan Caltagirone), an old friend for whom she has lingering feelings from a romantic relationship after Seth’s passing, spend time together reminiscing, and then spontaneously kiss, Erica is shocked at herself, regretful, and even more confused. Chaos over her sister’s wedding just adds to it.

When her boyfriend Marc demands to know what’s going on, Erica must finally face her deeply rooted feelings and make some extreme decisions. If she is ever going to find happiness, she must find the courage to move on from the past and open her heart and embrace the love that’s been patiently waiting for her all along.

The Dove Take:

When you suffer the loss of a loved one, there are those who will gladly stumble through the rough times with you. Do not deprive them or yourself of the opportunity to heal together. A beautiful story of coming back to love with gratitude and open arms. Dove approved for a 12+ audience due to reference to sex, beer consumption, and male torso nudity.
