Cute but Hallmarky
Cute movie Super cute leads But very made for tv/Hallmarky
We take fun seriously
Alec (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) has not achieved much in his life as he approaches the age of thirty. An uncle he doesn’t know offers to pay his debts if he spends a year in Nova Scotia. Reluctantly Alec accepts and becomes a healer, a gift he doesn’t want. Add a romantic element and a little girl with terminal cancer and you have the story.
The film starts out whimsical and stops short from getting too heavy or too religious. Worth a view, especially if you like Lifetime type films.
Guide: No swearing or nudity. Implied sex.
