Whether consciously or not, Hallmark Channel takes full advantage of the day and premiered a new original that revises the classic. Set in the contemporary world, the story isn’t so much “remake” as it is an extension that honors a timeless and romantic classic.

The Art of Us, based on the novel by Teri Wilson (who also wrote Hallmark’s Unleashing Mr. Darcy – which you all know I 100% adore), is a celebration of its inspiration. The changes, the unique markers and the cast all make this one an effortless 90 minutes of entertainment. All minutes sure to leave you with a happy smile.
