Forever My Girl ~ Review and Movie Trailer

Forever My Girl finds Liam Page answering the siren call of fame and success. Unfortunately he is drawn away from his hometown leaving the girl-next-door, love-of-his-life waiting to walk down the aisle.

Eight years pass without anyone in St. Augustine, Louisiana, seeing Liam and his treatment of Josie hasn't gone unnoticed. In fact, Liam's fame and success has not impressed those he left behind. When Liam hears about the death of someone he used to consider a close friend he returns home. But not to a open arm welcome.

But life has gone on without him and Josie has created a life without him. But seeing his first love brings back all he left behind. But can he rebuild what he destroyed? Liam is determined to re-win the love of his first love and that of the daughter he never knew he had. But feelings of worthlessness plague him.

This is a movie of second chances, forgiveness, and family. There are moments when one will be moved to tears as Liam faces the truth of why he ran away from those he loved most. But will he realize what he truly wants before he again blows it.

This movie is rated PG and this is an appropriate rating. There are suggestions of relational situations but nothing is shown, a few rough words and drinking which some parents might not want to expose their children to. Overall this movie a good pick for families with older kids.

I was provided an early viewing of this movie for review purposes.
