I was contacted by the Director/Screenwriter Sharon Wilharm to review Flowers For Fannie. I am always on the lookout for great Faith Based movies so I said yes!
However, when it came, the back of the DVD case was a grave and the front of the DVD case was the two characters above, but with a graveyard in the back instead of clouds. I really like the DVD case above a lot better. I held on the to movie for a couple of weeks until I had time to watch it by myself without the boys interrupting.
I must confess, I didn’t expect a lot out of the film. I was pleasantly surprised when, quite quickly, I was in love with Fannie and wanted a friend for her. The characters introduced as family, church members and people in town are all enchanting.
The settings are beautiful, an old time town with a square and old homes that are furnished beautifully. You really want to have an invite to Fannie’s house for lunch.
I was really pulled into this story. I laughed, and was choked up, and delighted. I worried for a too sad ending – and was again, delightfully surprised with how they topped it off.
Set to be in stores in October 2013, I recommend this movie as an excellent feel good family film, suitable for all ages.
I received a free copy of the DVD from the Director in the hopes that I would review the movie after watching.
