If you’re looking for a little love over the Valentine’s week, then you may wish to turn your attention to Hallmark over the next few days, to check out a new romantic movie. The new film stars Kathryn Davis, Markian Tarasiuk, and Kara Duncan, will be making its debut very shortly, and is appropriately titled: Welcome to Valentine.
The official blurb for the new movie (via Hallmark) reads as follows: “It’s a week away from Valentine’s Day and Olivia (Davis) loses both her boyfriend and her job in the same week. Her sister Vanessa (Kara Duncan), who still lives in their hometown in Nebraska, convinces Olivia to come back home for an extended trip and help get her back on her feet.
“Olivia’s roommate in New York has a friend, George (Tarasiuk), who’s driving out to Los Angeles and agrees to take Olivia to her destination – which is exactly halfway between New York and California – in exchange for a free night’s stay in her hometown. Olivia, low on cash after her layoff, agrees to take turns driving so he can get to Los Angeles in under five days.
“The two strangers set out on the open road, both on their way to being who they think they’re supposed to be. When George’s car breaks down mere miles from Olivia’s hometown, he has to stay a few more days in Valentine, Nebraska with Olivia and her sister.
“After spending so much time together, the two realize that their priorities might have changed and love is what truly matters.”
Kathryn Davis takes on the role of Olivia in Welcome to Valentine. Davis is known for parts in Jupiter’s Legacy, The Wedding Planners, and Santa’s Got Style, and will be familiar to fans of Hallmark movies, having previously appeared in A Christmas Carousel.
Meanwhile, playing the part of George in Welcome to Valentine is Markian Tarasiuk. Tarasiuk has appeared in television shows such as Supernatural, The Night Agent, and Family Law, as well as movies such as A Homecoming for the Holidays and Christmas at the Golden Dragon.
Welcome to Valentine is produced by NE Valentine Nebraska Productions Inc., with Shane Boucher and Caitlin Delaney on board as producers, Francesca Visconti as supervising producer, and Arnie Zipursky and Suzanne Berger as executive producers. The movie is directed by Stefan Brogren, working from a script by Jen Bashian and Stefanie Abel Horowitz.

One Response to Hallmark unveils Welcome to Valentine
Sorry you missed the mark totally in this movie. Obviously you have never been to Valentine. The script was okay, characters did not match the true essence of Valentine. You had a chance to showcase a magical place in the USA, but you went cheap filming in Canada. I am a huge fan of Hallmark, but you really blew it on this one. Get real Hallmark.
