      Jan M Very confusing movie. The timeline goes back and forth. For a supposedly an uplifting movie I did a lot of crying. I wish I had never started watching it. I couldn't understand a lot of what the children said and several deaths. I don't consider that a feel good movie. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 04/10/24 Full Review William S Thoroughly enjoyed. THIS is an excellent story with superb acting, continuity in the storyline. The choice of actors made it believable. Mostly I enjoyed the strength of embedded family values even in the face of sad situations. Made me cry, made me smile, made me laugh. I could feel the joy and the pain. I loved this movie. I will watch it again for sure, so I can relive the emotions I felt. I think this is one the better movies/stories that I could recommend to anyone ! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/29/23 Full Review tom m A nice change of pace. A reasonable well written story with a reasonably well done production. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A fun-filled, heartwarming film for the whole family, this movie caught my eye with it's old fashioned setting and featuring of some of my favorite actors. Melissa Gilbert and Corbin Bernsen were excellent as Grandma Ruby and Papo, who take in sisters Juliet and Evangeline when their father goes to war in 1967. This was an engaging and well written and acted film, wholesome and heartwarming it is a feel-good movie that you can comfortably share with others, knowing that it will bring smile to their face. I had such a great time watching this one with my parents. The pacing was great, I never felt like there was a dull or stagnant moment. This was such a fun entertaining film, I loved that it had its lighter moments as well as more serious ones, as the sisters struggle to understand what is going on around them. I was so impressed with this movie, and its wholesome winsomeness and charm, as well as its well paced plot and endearing characters. The late Cloris Leachman is a gem as Great-Grandmama, though Papo had to be my favorite! I would highly recommend this movie to fans of the popular When Calls the Heart or Little House on the Prairie. I received a complimentary code to view this movie. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member When We Last Spoke is a movie based off a book by Marci Henna. This film won awards in each of the five categories at the 2021 ICVM Crown Awards and some of these included best picture and best narrative. The movie takes place in the last 1960's in a small town called Fireside. Juliet and Evangeline ended up being raised by their grandparents, Walt and Ruby. The girl's father, James went to serve in the Vietnam War. Their mother decided at this time that she no longer wanted to raise her children. She made a decision to move back to New York to pursue her dream of becoming a singer. While living with their grandparents' we see the girls face challenges and adventures. Along the complicated life, their great grandmother moves in with them and she is losing her memory. This movie also travels back and forth between the past and the current lives of the girls where viewers can witness the full scope of the storyline. The sister lost touch when one of the sister's kept the painful truth of the past that their mother didn't want them anymore. She left town and vowed to never return. An unexpected event causes them to reconnect. I would recommend this awesome movie to anyone who enjoys a great family film. The film covered topics like forgiveness, healing from the past, learning to adjust to changing family structures, the importance of family, and much more. I liked how entertaining the film was and how there was a mixture of humor but also of sadness. I also loved the chemistry between the sisters and how they continued the story going from the past to the present to show the conflict and the healing they were able to experience. I immensely loved the cast in this movie and some of my favorite was Cloris Leachman (Raising Hope) and Melissa Gilbert (From Little House on the Prairie). I loved Cloris Leachman and the character she played she reminded of the same personality on Raising Hope. She added humor to the film along with in dealing with the difficult topic of dementia. This was also one of the last few films she appeared in since she passed away in January 2021. If you're looking for a clean family film, then check this one out! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Such a sweet movie of a time long lost I fear! Acting by Chandler Head and Darby Camp was outstanding, both terrific young actresses!. Corbin Bernsen and Melissa Gilbert were fantastic. Sets for 1967 houses and stores were a little unrealistic (I was there, being 13 years old myself then)...but forgivable. Screenplay was well developed and satisfying. All in All, a lovely movie, highly recommend! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
