‘SWEET PECAN SUMMER’ IS A LATE SUMMER TIME ROMANCE

September 18, 2021 No Comments

Each season, the Hallmark network puts out a block of feature programming to give homage to that time of year. One of their (obviously) summer romances is Sweet Pecan Summer, a story about coming home with an undeveloped dream.

Sweet Pecan Summer (2021) Hallmark TV Film Review

Coming home without having her new pitch idea chosen by her skincare company to innovate its brand isn’t what Amanda (Christine Ko) plans. But in the aftermath of her professional disappointment, she decides to return to her aunt’s pecan farm to help out. Of course, while there, she learns of surprising decisions her aunt is about to make.

While home, Amanda reunites with her ex, JP (Wes Brown), a former baseball player, now home working in his own business. They end up having to work together, which both irritates and intrigues Amanda.

The concept of this film is one I’ve seen time and time again, and honestly, it’s not a plot I’m fond of. I appreciate the subtle changes in how the film ends, but what frustrates me is the continuous thought of not being able to “let go” of something. Most people find this a bit harsh, but given the lessons we learn of “stuff” being just that and that we cannot take anything with us, I like to think of myself as more practical. I also believe, though haven’t tested the theory (not because I wouldn’t like to), home isn’t a place, but rather the people in your life.

That said, this is, yet again another typical Hallmark film. There’s nothing unique about its plot, but for the most part I like the cast. Christine and Wes are (mostly) cute together despite a few antics (that should be flirty or fun) seeming too “childish.” I don’t love everyone in the supporting cast, but the film is cute regardless.

There’s some pretty countryside and the bright colors of the wardrobe often “pops” against the scenery. Like anything you find in TV movies, Sweet Pecan Summer has much the same aptitude. There’s romance and family ties. So yes, all of the normal values you love of the network.
