Puckering up in preparation for its Hallmark debut is the romantic drama, Just One Kiss. The movie stars Krysta Rodriguez, Santino Fontana, Ava Grace Cooper, Alice Rose, Illeana Douglas, and Aida Turturro, and follows the story of a college professor and a club headliner, who develop a romance which is actively encouraged by their respective parents.
The official blurb for Just One Kiss (via Hallmark) reads as follows: “Mia (Rodriguez) is a college literature professor starting a new chapter with her 11-year-old daughter Rosie (Cooper) as her marriage is coming to an end. Tony (Fontana), a happy bachelor, is a popular headliner in a Manhattan supper club whose smooth renditions of timeless standards have gained him loyal fans.
“One day, Mia’s mother Marlene (Douglas) and Tony’s mother Sofia (Turturro) witness their daughter and son’s chance encounter at a showing of a classic, black-and-white movie at the local theatre and start to hatch a plan. The matriarchs decide to join forces for a little matchmaking, even cleverly orchestrating Mia’s move into an apartment in Tony’s building so they can continue to run into each other.
“Rosie bonds with Tony’s niece Isabella (Rose) and as the four of them spend time together, Mia and Tony grow close. Complicating matters are Mia’s soon-to-be ex-husband, who isn’t ready to exit just yet.
“Each of them is still recovering from past heartbreak, but it could be that just one kiss will lead them down the path to happily ever after.”
Just One Kiss is scripted by Diane Robin, David Reali, and Nina Weinman, from a story by Diane Robin and David Reali. The movie is directed by Jeff Beesley.
