Love Takes Wing Reviews
The seventh part in the Hallmark's 'Love Comes Softly' movie series. Yet another satisfying movie with the convincing performances. I expected this part to take place in a city, but deliberately avoiding those things from happening. One thing from this series is crystal clear, that is the women and their live struggles in the countryside.
The story continued, but as usual once again the cast has been changed as the timeline did. After the medical graduation and her husband's death, the mourning Belinda returns to the rural life. In the town where everybody panicked for the sudden deaths, blames for the orphanage. Belinda's arrive brings a new hope, so would she stand and deliver what people are expecting is the remaining story.
The movie series is reached at a different level now. Comparing this to the first, not only the cast and characters changed, but the plot as well. So far the story was narrated moving forward to the next generation and their struggle. Now with this, a new view about the society and its causes. Well, there is a romance, but less focused on it to give a chance to explore on the fresh subject.
"I wouldn't be who I was today
if I hadn't grow-up the way I did."
Of all the films, the cast was the best thing happened. The women were beautiful by appearance and excellent in character display. Particularly in this, Haylie Duff filled that part, but she's only been a sidekick and I hope she will return in the next as well. Because the character Belinda became more serious and professional. Refuses to blend in with the other characters, I mean in the human emotional way, in another word the chemistry is missing.
That's not how we remember the women of this film series. They are gentle, caring and liked by the other characters around them. So, feels the change has come, but does it go on like this in the following films is the question. The old lady who runs the orphanage was the main attraction in the performance. That is also my weakness, I always fall for when I see the older people struggle in their lives. The role was small, maybe won't return in the next, but one of the best in the entire series.
We have already talked about the deaths, especially the husband's, but the movie without a little girl is also impossible. It is kind of routine, without it the narration won't proceed, because they are the one who is going to lead in the follow-up films. In this the new girl, Lillian was introduced. The girl from one of my all time and favourite children's film 'Standing Up'. It was a wonderful role, but I already began to analyse her character's field of interest, because that's what the next narration going to be.
Looked at in widescreen mode on the tele (tv, for you neophytes), it is presentable as a first or least wise second rate film.
Purely a sappy Hallmark Hall of Fame like movie, this film has a woman doctor and her friend doctor, also a woman graduate of Boston, coming to Sikeston, an unlikely hamlet near St. Louis, Missouri.
A part of a series of films taken from the novel by Janette Oke, you should see all of the installments one by one, but unfortunately, the county library only has a few of the series going by the name: Love Comes Softly.
The title of the series should be Love Comes Slowly,Very Slowly. Every one of these films has a bit of a fight between the lovers.
This film is wonderful. It grabs your attention about half way thru as the woman doctor lead actress deals with a sickness the age has only bare witness to.
Worth your time.
