A Catholic parish website said to spread the news about this upcoming made for TV movie by Hallmark Hall of Fame.
The movie was produced in association with Paulist Productions:
Based on James Michael Pratt’s novel, and directed by Darnell Martin, the sweetly romantic, family-oriented drama premieres Sunday, Jan. 30, 9-11 p.m. EST on CBS.
Each Valentine’s Day – her wedding anniversary and the anniversary, a year later, of her husband’s departure for service in the Pacific – Caroline Thomas, touchingly played by the indefatigable Betty White, returns to the railroad station where she saw her courageous and high-minded spouse, Neil (Billy Magnussen), for the last time.
Though he was reported missing in action shortly after the birth of their son a few months later, 65 years on, Neil’s ultimate fate remains a mystery.
Assigned to cover Caroline’s story as a human interest piece, initially doubtful TV reporter Susan Allison (Jennifer Love Hewitt) rapidly finds herself drawn to the plucky octogenarian and – more significantly – to Caroline’s biggest fan, her protective grandson, Lucas (Sean Faris) . . .
If the proceedings occasionally seem over-idealized, this is, nonetheless, that current rarity: quality programming appropriate for all ages. So parents can feel entirely comfortable gathering the clan for a wholesome and inviting stroll back in time to the days of swing music, victory gardens, and demanding commitments – both personal and patriotic – fulfilled.
I have never appreciated Betty White’s style of humor, so I probably won’t watch it.
