MOVIE REVIEW

Network: Hallmark Channel

Original Air Date: March 8, 2014

*Please Note: I will not be endorsing or promoting this movie since the plotline includes a gypsy fortuneteller. This posting of this movie is a caution to all of you who share in my faith and belief that psychic readings and fortune telling is evil. For further details, please read the plot description below.



CAST:

Rachel Boston ... Caryn Briggs
Chad Krowchuk ... Gregg
Ali Liebert ... Stephanie
Stefanie Powers ... Madame Rue
Kirby Morrow ... Tom Halsey
Chris Jacot ... Bryce


PLOT:

“A Ring By Spring,” follows a fiercely independent single woman who is forced to consider marrying her not-so-perfect boyfriend when a gypsy fortuneteller, played by Stefanie Powers, convinces her she must be engaged by the spring or risk a lifetime alone.

Business consultant Caryn Briggs (Rachel Boston) is still single at 30, but is in no rush to wed. She’s always been skeptical about marriage, thinking the commitment would mean throwing away her future. She has let a string of steady boyfriends get away in favor of her own freedom. When she attends a fundraising event with friends Gregg (Chad Krowchuk) and Stephanie (Ali Liebert), she playfully agrees to have her fortune read at a charity booth run by soothsayer Madame Rue (Powers), who ominously predicts Caryn will have an engagement ring by spring— or she’ll never marry.

Caryn doesn’t give much thought to Madame Rue’s fortune as she starts a new job with friendly, laid-back boss Tom Halsey (Kirby Morrow), with whom she has a lot in common. But when Stephanie and Gregg’s fortunes come true, Caryn worries she might be closer to a ring than she thought—from her uptight boyfriend, Bryce (Chris Jacot). With Caryn suddenly very nervous about an impending proposal, Bryce shocks her when he breaks up with her instead, claiming she isn’t marriage material.

Finally faced with the truth, Caryn must admit to herself she needs to get over her fear of lifelong commitment. As she forces another try with Bryce, she also forges a friendship with Tom, whose growing feelings for her are no secret. With spring approaching fast and no ring in sight, Caryn wonders if Madame Rue meant to doom her to a lifetime alone and must learn that the true sacrifice isn’t getting hitched—but giving up on a real, lasting love.

    2. You're definitely not alone! I, too, was disappointed to see that a fortuneteller is involved, and won't watch it because of that.

  4. In a world where it is hard to find faith-based entertainment, it is nice to have a trustworthy info source.

  5. I respect your choice, but I have to say that the fortuneteller was not a large part of the story. My parents, who are stanch Christians and strongly against such things as you are, watched the movie and seemed to thoroughly enjoy it.

  6. I was just wondering if anyone could verify if this was filmed in Canada? The license plate for the fortuneteller was a B.C. one.

    1. Yeah, it was a Vancouver plate. I just was wondering if it was filmed on location since I have a strange fascination with all things Canada, lol.
