The screenplay writer took a wonderful book, used two characters, Father Tim and Cynthia, eliminated the other characters. The book's plot was rewritten as a romantic TV movie. It would have been much easier to stick to the original Jan Karon story line. The lead characters were too young to play the characters. Hope that others will complain to Hallmark Channel
How could Hallmark miss the mark of this wonderful, redemptive story so badly???!!! Why are you trying to be like every other shallow love story? The story is so much more. The book(s) is about an aging circa 60 year, balding, pudgy Episcopal priest and a 50-something wife finding each other and healing and redemption multiplied. The book's story stands on it's own and doesn't need tampering in the slightest. You left out some of the most beloved characters. No wonder Jan Karon was so hesitant to release the rights. I'm certain her worst fears were realized. PLEASE don't make a sequel.
I could not even finish the first half hour. . . . It was just a "boy meets Andie" movie that we've seen before in Cedar Cove. Andie, Andie, Andie, you should have let Ms. Karon have more say. She created multi-dimensional, vulnerable, redemptive characters. Y'all didn't even come close. Greatly disappointed.
So disappointing! I am a huge fan of the books and had hoped this would be made into a film for a long time. This mess doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same breath. Father Tim is supposed to be 59 and balding! Major characters are missing like Puny, Miss Sadie Baxter, Uncle Billy and Miss Rose. Instead they throw in new characters that are not needed to hold the plot together. I am sad they did such a poor job of filming a lovely book! Now I know why the author has done no promotion of this film.
Remember to good Hallmark movies? This is not one of them! Finally watched it on YouTube. Please don't use that screenwriter, casting director, etc. again, if you intend to make sequels. I am on Jan Karon's FB page and never knew this movie was going to be made. She must have given up all rights to casting. I would have donated money to a kickstarter account to make the movie the way she wanted. I envisioned Beau Bridges as Father Tim, and Emma Thompson as Cynthia (American accent). If anyone in the entertainment business read AARP Magazine, they would know that many of us want movies with mature actors. Sheesh. Not Cameron Matheson as Father Tim. Not even close. What a shame.
