REVIEW: Country twang and homegrown heart mark Forever My Girl

There’s something truly heartwarming about this small, charming, out-of-nowhere film.

It’s an unassuming, familiar tale of romance and never giving up on those we truly love.

Liam Page returns to his quaint hometown after eight years touring as a country superstar.

But when he does, there is a less-than-joyous crowd of family and friends upon his return.

When he took off chasing fame, he left the love of his life at the altar. That day, he betrayed not only his fiancee Josie’s trust, but hurt the whole town.

It’s a well-worn tale, but central performances from Alex Roe and Jessica Rothe, as well as their palpable chemistry, make this memorable.

Points to the film’s youngest star — Abby Ryder Fortson — who literally steals every scene she’s in.

It’s adorable, romantic and truly worthwhile.

4/5 Stars
