‘Love Under the Olive Tree’: A Delayed but Fun Hallmark

September 19, 2020 No Comments

One of the television romantic-comedies set to air in 2019, this one was then pulled from the schedule only to then show up again earlier this year. The fall themes, newer Hallmark faces and fun premise makes this one cute and sweet, and of course, equally as fun to watch.

Love Under the Olive Tree (2019) Hallmark Review

For years the Brandini and Cabella families have been a kind of enemy. Their competing Olive Oil companies are both doing fine, but as a joint company, which is where they started, each was at their best. Now, granddaughter Nicole (Tori Anderson) is ready to take over the Cabella family business while her grandfather retires and plans a vacation. Coinciding with this is the return of Jake (Ben Hollingsworth), the boy Nicole used to play with during long summer days. He also happens to be the grandson of her grandfather’s business rival, which means he’s not someone she plans to become friendly with.

Big city lawyer, Jake is back after a scare with his grandfather, but with a big competition coming up and a bit of land in question between the Cabella and Brandini families, Jake decides to stay. This inspires a risky business bet, and maybe a tangling of two hearts.

BOOK REVIEW | ‘Listen to your Heart’: Enjoy the Perfect Any Day Read!

Let the redundant words commence! As usual, this film is again sweet and darling. There are lots of fun antics and for once I quite enjoyed the Romeo and Juliet aspects of the story. Also, the entertaining competitive spirt is cute too, not always a trope I appreciate or like. Here it just makes me laugh.

Like anything, I enjoy seeing some new network faces. Anderson is from the CW show No Tomorrow and while Ben has been in prior of these films (Lucky in Love), he’s not a regular. They’re cute together, and I like seeing the sweet little add on at the end that shows them still happy. You’ll also recognize Shawn Roberts from the film Ms. Matched with Alexa PenaVega.

Those of you who, like me, enjoy a mindless little romantic-comedy or better still one that you can watch with the family will enjoy Love Under the Olive Tree. It’s not Hallmark’s most popular nor does it feature the faces that seem to consistently draw in viewers, but this doesn’t mean it’s not still quite cute. It is, and that alone makes it a charming way to spend the night.

Content: really there’s nothing to mention. There is a non-descript (very!)implication that two characters may be homosexual. The film is TV-G.
