Love Again

September 3, 2023 - Singing legend Céline Dion plays relationship counselor for Sam Heughan and Priyanka Chopra Jonas. This PG-13 film was released in May 2023. It's based on a 2016 German film which, in turn, is based on a novel.

Heughan is Rob Burns, a music journalist working in New York City. He's single but hasn't been dating since he got dumped by his fiancée just before the wedding. But, something inside him starts to stir when he starts getting text messages filled with emotion on his work phone. Should he try to find out who's sending them? His co-workers say yes!

Turns out those texts are coming from Mira Ray (Jonas), an author of children's books. A couple years ago, her boyfriend was hit and killed by a drunk driver. Mira is still grieving, and she copes by texting the boyfriend's phone number. When she finds out that number belongs to someone else, should she meet him? Her sister says yes!

Rob and Mira eventually meet, and the relationship goes well until it doesn't. That's when Céline Dion steps in and gives Rob and Mira what they need so that their hearts can go on.

Overall review: ** Heughan and Jonas are likeable enough. So is the supporting cast. And, Jonas's husband, Nick, provides some comic relief. This movie is easy enough to watch, but in the end, it felt like there wasn't a lot of there there.
