Now this is how to make a family film! Put a really good script into the mix along with really good acting and direction, and you wind up with something like “Wild Hearts,” a Hallmark Channel presentation. The characters undergo change and grow and the story even has some mystery which is resolved by film’s end. Emmy-award winner Richard Thomas always gives a good performance and he is very believable here as the interim sheriff in Hope, Montana; having returned home to take care of his deceased father’s affairs. His character of Sheriff Bob runs the gamut from dealing with his emotions over his father, to getting to throw a mean jab at the bad guy by film’s end. Young Hallee Hirsh is quite good as the sheriff’s rebellious teenager Madison. Nancy McKeon and Geoffrey Lewis (an old sidekick of Clint Eastwood) are also quite good in their respective roles of veterinarian Emily Benson and ranch hand Hank. This is one the entire family can enjoy and we award it five Doves, the most we can give, and we approve “Wild Hears” for all ages.
