Editor’s Note: Promotion for “Love Again” was agreed upon before the SAG-AFTRA strike.
“Love Again” is a heartfelt movie about love and loss. The movie begins with a unique meet-cute due to a series of errant text messages between Mira Ray (Priyanka Chopra Jonas) and Rob Burns (Sam Heughan).
So what’s this movie about? Check out the synopsis below…
What if a random text message led to the love of your life? In this romantic comedy, dealing with the loss of her fiancé, Mira Ray sends a series of romantic texts to his old cell phone number…not realizing the number was reassigned to Rob Burns’ new work phone. A journalist, Rob is captivated by the honesty in the beautifully confessional texts. When he’s assigned to write a profile of megastar Celine Dion (playing herself in her first film role), he enlists her help in figuring out how to meet Mira in person…and win her heart.
Usually, when I see Priyanka Chopra Jonas (“Citadel” and “Quantico”) on the screen, she’s playing a spy or an agent. It was nice to see her in a rom-com. Also her real life husband, Nick Jonas, has a small part in the film and he is hilarious in it.
Now you may recognize the leading man in the film, Sam Heughan, from his “Outlander” TV series. He has great chemistry with Priyanka in the movie.
Celia Imrie, who I know from “Better Things,” plays Priyanka’s well-meaning and supportive children’s book editor. Sofia Barclay, Russell Tovey and Lydia West round out the supporting characters with strong performances.
Speaking of performances, I was pleased with Céline Dion’s acting. Although she was playing herself in the movie, she still had to deliver the lines and sell her performance. She was genuinely good!
