Every now and again a movie comes out that takes us back to nostalgic times. If you like films that demonstrate respect, forgiveness, and a wholesome lifestyle based on a Judeo-Christian worldview, then When We Last Spoke is for you.
The story is about Juliet and her sister Evangeline. In 1967, their father is called to Vietnam and their mother dumps them off at their grandparents’ house on her way to New York. Throughout their life, the two girls have to battle with multiple family issues until the truth finally brings them together decades later.
The film stars Corbin Bernsen (Pysch), Melissa Gilbert (Little House on the Prairie), and Academy Award winner, Cloris Leachman (Young Frankenstein). These actors are superb as you’d expect, but the real star was Darby Camp (Big Little Lies), who played the young Juliet.
If you want to see an incredibly emotional performance from a young actress, this movie will play on your heart for weeks to come. In fact, the way Melissa Gilbert and Darby Camp played off of each other was magical.
The movie was adapted from the book written by Marci Henna. Rick Eldridge (The Ultimate Gift) produced. His production company ReelWorks Studios produced the film on location in Georgia.
The film will take you down memory lane at the same pace that life unfolded back in the day. The richness of the characters and the deep respect was a reminder of how much we’ve lost in our country. So, if you’d like to bath in that atmosphere for two hours, pick up a copy of this movie.
When We Last Spoke was recognized at several film festivals. Not only did it win Best Picture at the ICVM Awards, but it grabbed the hearts of audiences. Two festivals voted the film as the “Audience Favorite,” which can be a far more valuable award to receive. Bernsen, Gilbert, and Leachman also took home awards for their performances.
You can find the movie on Amazon Prime. It’s also available for purchase from Target, Walmart, Best Buy, and Barnes & Noble. If you prefer On Demand, then check out the film at Fandango Now, Apple TV, and Christian Cinema.
