Lance Hool’s new drama based on an inspirational true story looks at the intersection of two couples over different time periods.
2 Hearts draws from the novel All My Tomorrows and features romantic interludes of Chris (Jacob Flordi) and Sam (Tiera Skorbye). As well as an older couple Jorge (Adam Canto) and Leslie (Aussie actress Radha Mitchell remembered from films like Pitch Black, Silent Hill and Man On Fire).
All of the characters are made to be likable enough and the performers do what they can to elicit some interest, yet the parings just don’t really resonate as intended or perhaps like its progenitor offered.
The narrative posits a bit of subterfuge on its part as the strands intertwine from collegiate safety work of a Uber variety to an inviting weekend getaway spurred by a wealthy scion of a Cuban distiller.
Knowing less about these “actual events”might provide some kind of spiritual solace or uplift, but from the initial narration one is mainly aboard for a forecasted destination.
2 Hearts finds hope and joy from loss and grief as the ramifications from a soccer injury in youth dome too fruition. Something poignant along the lines of a Nicholas Sparks big-screen presentation unfortunately unfolds too often in an engaging, perfunctory fashion as it could appeal to faith-based audiences.
This pretty vacuous tale through breathes miraculously off-screen through septuagenarian Jorge Bacardi from author Christopher Gregory.
