Do you have a designated night you and the family hang out and reconnect? If so, do you play a board or video game or may order a pizza and watch a movie? Do you have trouble finding family friendly entertainment the whole family will enjoy? It seems harder and harder to find quality programming suitable for the kids as well as the adults. With the Hallmark Hall of Fame channel, you get a plethora of fantastic movies made for the whole gang to watch. For more than 60 years, the Hallmark Hall of Fame has presented original films that entertain, enlighten and inspire. AWAY & BACK is the latest in the series and is no exception to the Hallmark Hall of Fame legacy! The movie stars Jason Lee and Minka Kelly, and is directed by Jeff Bleckner, director of Hallmark Hall of Fame fan favorites like Remember Sunday (2013) and Loving Leah (2009).
Coming to the Hallmark Channel on on Sunday, January 25 at 8/7 Central, AWAY & BACK is a heart warming story of a family and a flock of graceful swans. This family-friendly film brings adventure, humor and romance, making it a movie that will appeal to everyone in the family. When a family of swans makes their home on the Peterson farm, it’s love at first sight for 10-year-old daughter Frankie (Maggie Elizabeth Jones). But along comes no-nonsense ornithologist Ginny Newsom (Minka Kelly), who rushes in to “save” the majestic birds.
For Frankie’s dad Jack (Jason Lee), it’s dislike at first sight when he encounters pushy, know-it-all Ginny. Frankie and her brothers are anything but neutral observers as they watch the initial hostility between their widowed father and the strong-willed Ginny transform into something else. Could romance be in the air? Watch this short video and see if you think love is on the horizon for these two.
