When Calls the Heart: It Begins With Heart (Movie Review)

This movie serves as an introduction of sorts to the TV series starring Laurie Loughlin. Set in a frontier town, the residents are preparing for a New Year's event while dealing with different personal issues. 

The period piece also stars Jack Wagner, Erin Krakow, and Daniel Lissing. I enjoyed seeing some old favorites back on the screen while also getting introduced to actors I unfamiliar with. They all handled their roles with ease and charm that drew me in despite being a bit quick to flip back and forth between different characters. 

I particularly enjoyed the settings, costuming, and humor that was spread throughout the movie (Like the dog that was jealous of Elizabeth and Jack). If you're into period pieces and enjoy family-friendly stories that can, at times, veer into the cheesy, you should enjoy this one.
