‘TAKING THE REINS’: A PRETTY FALL COUNTRY ROMANCE

October 21, 2021 1 Comment

Despite the fact that Hallmark’s autumn days are imminently ending, I’m still hoping it lasts longer (I despise winter). Taking the Reins takes place in the countryside and features a popular Hallmark star.

Taking the Reins (2021) Hallmark TV Film Review

Unable to turn in articles that impress her boss, big city writer Samantha (Nikki Deloach) unexpectedly makes a trip back home. She’s asked to make things more personal, and so her subject is going to be the annual equestrian event her family is a part of each year. This year, her family is actually hosting it. So she returns home, to an event she once competed in, in the hopes of finding her more personal story. Little does she realize just how personal this will be.

Upon her return, not only does Sam reunite with family, she also discovers her ex-husband Luke (Scott Porter) is now her father’s employee!

Films that explore relationships that are exes (in marriage) is always interesting. This is the second on the network that Deloach has starred in; the first being a Christmas title. The dynamics are always a little bit different and also, there’s always that deeper emotional connection. Screen writer Alex Wright also has credits on titles like Sand Dollar Cove which is another of my more recent favorites.

The cast is pretty good and also includes Corbin Bernsen. There’s more than just the turmoil between the exes to contend with. Plus, as is the norm on the network, there’s the parental relationship, too. It’s always fun to see Deloach in something, and more entertaining is seeing Scott Porter in a Hallmark post his role in the Southern comedy Hart of Dixie, and more recently the raunchier Ginny and Georgia.

If you like their fall harvest titles, you’ll enjoy Taking the Reins. There’s beautiful autumn scenery, emphasis on family (as always) and some really sweet romance moments, too.

Content: this one is clean, though the final 5-7 minutes there’s a same sex relationship, which we didn’t know about up until that point. The film has a TV-G rating.
