Audience Reviews for When Love Comes

Very typically New Zealand. It was genuinely enjoyable. The sountrack
was fantastic, the songs are really well balanced and were precisely
chosen for the different scenes, also established the setting clearly.
The acting was very raw and natural like, Rena Owen proved her worth
once again. The plot was somewhat cliched but stil maintained some
interesting little lines that surprised viewers.

An interesting movie with a great story plot that follows a group of friends. Katie, Eddie, Stephen, Fig, and Sally. Each person having a certain desire, or need, to be fulfilled from their ones. Great cast- Rena Owen, Dean O'Gorman, Simon Prast, Sophie Hawthorne, and Simon Westaway. Worthy!
