Coming to Hallmark very shortly is the new romantic drama, The Presence of Love. The movie, from Crown Media Productions LLC, is largely set in the UK, and focuses on the story of a young woman who takes an unexpected trip overseas and finds romance along the way.
The Presence of Love stars Eloise Mumford, Julian Morris, Samantha Bond, and Amy Sharp. The film is an all-new movie for Hallmark, and hits screens later this month.
The official blurb for The Presence of Love (via Hallmark) reads as follows: “Over the years, Adjunct Professor of Romantic Literature, Jocelyn “Joss” Lambert (Mumford) has let practicality and fear of the unknown rule her life, saving risk and adventure for the heroines in her books. Just before her 33rd birthday, Joss receives a surprise gift from her late mom – a 10-day trip to England to discover her roots – a trip she and her mom had always planned to take together.
“Faced with a career-altering “publish or perish” deadline, an anxiety-prone Joss goes on the journey, hoping it will inspire her. Arriving at the Cornish farmhouse her grandparents used to own, now rented out as a B&B, Joss meets Daniel (Morris), a single dad who runs the family farm despite his strained relationship with his strong-willed mother, Merryn (Bond).
“Amid family tensions over the future of the farm, Joss tries to write, but is blocked until she bonds with Daniel’s daughter Tegan (Sharp), who is struggling with undiagnosed dyslexia. As Joss ignores her own deadline to help Tegan, Daniel and Merryn begin to warm up to her and see their family bonds strengthened and Joss finds a link to her own family’s past that brings her clarity.
“As her journey of self-discovery comes to an end, Joss must decide how to live her truest life — a life that might just include a romantic kind of love she never expected.”
The Presence of Love is written by Nicole Baxter, and is directed by Maclain Nelson. Nelson has previously directed movies including Every Time a Bell Rings (2021), Christmas in Vienna (2020), and Small Town Christmas (2018).
Clare Niederpruem, Leif Bristow, Agnes Bristow and Borga Dorter are executive producers on the new movie, while Mark Vennis is a producer.
Filmed on location in Cornwall, England, The Presence of Love aims to provide audiences with a real flavour of the UK, showcasing one of its more popular holiday destinations. Those who have never been to England will get to see the picturesque beauty of Cornwall, as it provides the perfect backdrop to a tale of romance.
The Presence of Love will air in the US on Hallmark Movies & Mysteries on Sunday March 13th at 9pm ET/PT.
