A Heartwarming Romantic Comedy
What a wonderful time for this very touching movie to arrive on the big screen! Forget about taxes coming up, storms, long drives to work and any things that might be troublesome. I believe anyone who watches Faith, Hope & Love will leave the theater uplifted, inspired, and happy. They might even want to see the film again.
Jimmy Hope (Robert Krantz/Do You Want To Dance, Back to the Future and writer on this film), has just lost his wife and is very concerned about raising his two daughters. He pouts around a lot but also feels happy he has friends that help him get through the days.
Jimmy is in the right place when Faith Turley (Peta Murgatroyd/Dancing with the Stars) shows up. Faith is going through a rough marriage with a husband who treats her badly. He and Faith are excellent dancers, and she was counting on him to enter a dance contest with her so she could keep her dance studio.
Faith and Jimmy run into each other often because he has business in the same building. He often brings his daughters in, so they meet Faith and get to know her well. Desperate to still enter the contest, Faith convinces Jimmy to be a partner with her in rehearsals. At first there are lots of laughs, but the two become very comfortable together and cling to happier times in their lives.
Moviegoers looking for a good story will find much to enjoy in this film. Fans of Dancing with the Stars will be surprised at how well Robert and Peta perform on the dance floor, and the choreography of the dance scenes by Pascal Combes–Knoke are terrific. Directors Krantz and J.J Englert chose a great cast, and they have created a film that will have audiences wanting more while leaving very inspired.
