‘ONE SUMMER’: SAM PAGE STARS IN DRAMA ABOUT LIGHT AND HEALING

October 9, 2021 No Comments

If ever you want something that’s Hallmark-esque, but not their norm, cute rom-coms, all you have to do is look to their sister network. Though rare they air much beyond Christmas and their signature mysteries, once in a while, they have a good old-fashioned kind of drama like One Summer.

One Summer (2021) Hallmark TV Film Review

Taking his two children to the hometown where his wife, Lizzie (Amanda Schull) grew up is something Jack Armstrong (Sam Page) has wanted to do for a while now. He just never thought he’d go without Lizzie. But as they arrive and try to settle in, Jack has more than his thoughts to occupy his time. His eldest, Mikki (Madeline Grace Popovich) is more than a little surly, always fighting against her father. His youngest (Gavin Borders) is just looking for everything to be normal again while his sister continues to treat him like a nuisance.

Jack hopes this is one summer that will help them all bridge the gap even as they made new friends with the locals, and reconnect with grandparents.

The bones of this film remind me of the old style of Hallmark film that once aired on CBS networks as part of the Hallmark Hall of Fame titles. I don’t this even this one has that serious (enough) edge to make it work, but the bones of the story certainly do. The plot takes some unexpected turns from the start. Not in its present, but in the backstory past. Also, the film has a light supernatural element that’s sweet and part of the healing for the characters.

Additionally, Sarah Drew and Bryant Prince join the already good cast. I always like Sam Page in his Hallmark roles and this is no different. There’s plenty of good moments in the story including tender moments and the promise of “what’s next” without actually telling us the answer. It’s a wise way to end the story given all that transpires beforehand.

If you don’t like more emotional dramas, then One Summer is a good pick. It’s got the summertime feels, but doesn’t shy away from some tears either.
