PLOT:

from Hallmark-

Noah McManus (Metcalfe) has it all: He’s about to start his dream job as a legislative director for a U.S. Senator, and he’s about to propose to his devoted girlfriend. But in one day, Noah’s entire world changes when his new boss resigns surrounded by controversy and he realizes that he and his girlfriend are not meant to be together, when he discovers she's been cheating on him.

Devastated and now alone, except for the company of his dog, Arlo, Noah drives to the Cape Cod town where he had intended to propose. There he finds comfort among the town’s peaceful setting and appealing local residents. He also finds himself falling for the bookstore owner and becoming involved in the town’s heated local election. It’s all alluring to Noah. He’s finally found a meaningful purpose for his life and someone to share it with. But what will happen when he gets another high-level job offer and his remorseful ex-girlfriend returns, luring him back to his familiar lifestyle?







Movie Review:

The premise for this story was interesting... guy has everything - then, guy loses everything. However, the story from there seemed too easy and predictable.

First of all, there is this 30 year old guy, Noah McManus (played by Jesse Metcalfe)- and in one day he gets a job with a popular Senator and that night he proposes to his girlfriend, who has been manipulating him into doing so.

By the next day, though, everything has changed, Noah discovers his live-in girlfriend/fiance is having an affair - so the engagement is off and the new job he was about to take with a Senator will not take place, due to scandal.

Noah then rushes off to a Cape Cod Island, where he and his girlfriend were to spend the weekend together and he must go there because he has shipped her engagement ring there and he has to retrieve it. After losing his job, he needs the money.

Soon after coming to the town, Noah becomes involved in their small town politics. I just loved all the people in this small town - they all seemed so sweet and loyal to their country and community. One man, Sam, the owner of the local B&B, would go out everyday and proudly place the American flag on it's pole.

Just a day or two after his engagement is over, Noah tells Sam and his wife, that he has met someone. He is instantly attracted to Hailey, a local book shop owner, and there is a sweet chemistry between the two - but it just seems too soon after his engagement was only broken hours before.

It takes a while, but eventually Noah becomes more and more involved in their small town politics... and many of the townspeople decide they want Noah to run for Town Manager. In the end, we never learn who wins, I guess it is just presumed that Noah will win. And it ends, with Noah and Hailey kissing by the sea.



See or Skip:

I must suggest skipping this one.

  2. I liked the movie but I didn't like that there was an affair going on in the movie and some very intense kissing. It is suppose to be a Hallmark family film.

  3. I agree with Britta. Hallmark is crossing their own line with this one and it is hard enough to find movies without sordidness. I like to watch them with my granddaughter, not this one.

    1. Christine,

      You are so right! This movie, "Fairfield Road," is definitely one I suggested skipping in my review above. Even though it's from 2009, it's not a family friendly movie like many of the older Hallmark movies.

      That is so sweet that you enjoy watching movies with your granddaughter. If you keep following here at It's a Wonderful Movie - you'll see reviews of movies, old and new. Hopefully, that will be helpful to you.

  4. The dog is all important, and then he's dumped? After being put in the car and taken back to the city, the dog disappears - not even seen when Noah returns to Cape Cod, nor on the beach nor even when he's waiting for the boat when the bridge is closed. Any man who isn't loyal to his dog, doesn't deserve to be City Manager or to get the girl.
