Nashville , Tennessee- When Calls the Heart, directed by Michael Landon Jr. and based on the best-selling books by Janette Oke, tells the story of a young high society teacher receiving her first classroom post in a prairie town in the Western Frontier. Determined to prove to her family that she is brave enough to live on her own, Elizabeth (Poppy Drayton) struggles with her own fears and doubts until she discovers her late Aunt's diary. Her aunt (Maggie Grace), also named Elizabeth, had set off on a similar adventure as a teacher into the frontier, where she struggled with prairie life and eventually met and fell in love with a Royal Canadian Mountie (Stephen Amell). Reading her aunt’s words, the young Elizabeth decides to put her future in God’s hands and embark on her own adventure where she uses the diary as her guide as well as Edward, another Mountie (Daniel Sharman), sworn to see her arrive.
When Calls the Heart debuted on the Hallmark Channel to more than 3.2 million viewers, making it the No. 1 movie of the week on ad-supported cable. Distributed by Word Entertainment, The DVD will be available to purchase in Christian Retail November 19th, 2013.
I was happy when I was given the opportunity to review When Calls the Heart DVD. I have been a huge fan of Janette Oke for some time with all of her series. However, I have not read the book ‘When Calls the Heart’ but after watching the movie I think reading the book alongside the movie would answer many questions. I love the storyline of how the women want to be schoolteachers and come from very privileged families but instead start teaching in the Wild West. The storyline is amazing and offers very heartwarming moments that make the movie what it is. The actors also do a tremendous job with their acting for their characters. I highly recommend watching this movie if you are a fan of the series from Janette Oke.
