I LOVED this movie !
Ingrid De Souza is romantic & real & gorgeous !

And singer AUWE's version of "Estate" sung at the closing credits made me swoon!

Speaking as a conservative (but with some liberal leanings), I absolutely recommend this movie to any viewer regardless of how conservative (or liberal) his/her social views may be.

It's a heartfelt love story with a twist! You'll like it, I promise.
