Family Movie Review- When We Last Spoke

It seems like these days it’s always hard to find a movie that the whole family can watch together that isn’t animated, so I was so glad to be invited to watch the pre-screening of “When We Last Spoke.” I have my family visiting , so I was glad we could all sit down and enjoy it. It’s SUCH a great movie, which is why I can’t wait to tell you all about it, except the ending of course 🙂

When We Last Spoke is inspired by the novel from Marci Henna, director Joanne Hock and screenplay writers Rick Eldridge and Jimmy Hager. I really love movies that are based off of novels. 

In 1967, sisters Juliet (Darby Camp) and Evangeline (Chandler Head) are abandoned by their mother at their unsuspecting grandparents’ farm in the small southern town of Fireside. They begged her not to leave them with their grandparents. Their father was away at war, and would write his kids letters all of the time, which of course, his kids looked forward to his letters, especially after their mother left them.

With their grandparents stunned by their sudden arrival, tender-hearted Walt (Corbin Bernsen) and fiddler Ruby (Melissa Gilbert) graciously stand in for the missing parents and create one blue-ribbon recipe for a loving family.

I absolutely love that the grandparents are a good Christian family and instill this into their grandchildren. They’re always talking about faith and they pray together every night at dinner.

Fireside, home of radio Station KOFF, kept secrets, broken promises and to-die-for sundaes serves as the backdrop for this heartwarming story full of surprises. Evangeline and Juliet became impromptu DJs for their local radio station and love every minute of it.

Top it all off with the unexpected appearance of Walt’s ailing mother who has congestive heart failure—eccentric, Emily Dickinson-quoting Itasca (Cloris Leachman), and laughter and tears abound.

Richly packed with plenty of quirky characters and hilarious escapades, #WhenWeLastSpokeMIN is a timeless movie for all ages that digs in deep to things that matter most—family, friends, love, and forgiveness. 

This is a movie that your whole family will thoroughly enjoy, there’s lots of laughter, tears, and will leave you heartfelt, and grateful for family and friends.
