Love Surreal - Hallmark Movie Review

Love Surreal - Hallmark Channel Movie Review
Have you ever overlooked a great movie simply because the feature image does not appeal? That is exactly what happened to me with the Hallmark movie, "Love Surreal". I admit, the title didn't draw me in either! 

During a stressful day recently, I went in search of a nice movie to help calm my concerns for the day. After all, there was nothing I could do to change the outcome of the source of my stress. I simply had to wait. 

When I find myself having to "wait", I tend to imagine the worst. Therefore, it is best for me to refocus and stop the horrible images having a field day in my mind. I turned to the Hallmark channel to find my balance.  I needed a calm and peaceful movie, preferably with a happy ending.

Unfortunately, I had seen most to the movies currently available on the Hallmark channel.  I scanned the images several times and finally gave in to one that I intentionally dismissed previously.  I would watch "Love Surreal" and hope for the best.  

As it turns out, it was a pretty good movie.  A romantic story with a dose of comic relief.  I found myself laughing out loud several times during the movie and being equally delighted by the story line.  Love Surreal was exactly what I needed!


Love Surreal Movie Synopsis


Love Surreal Movie DVD
This is the featured image for the movie.
It didn't draw me in, which is a shame.  What do you think?
Being an only child, Abigale Morrison always felt alone when she was growing up.  Since her parents focused their attention on each other and traveling, instead of on Abby, she believed she was only an accessory in her parents marriage.  Not really a part of their lives.  Young Abby found company in her imaginary friend, Simon (Sy for short).  

Sy was understanding, compassionate and always available. When Abby loved drawing and when she drew pictures of herself, she included her friend, Sy as her companion.  She found contentment with her new ally. So much so, she maintained her friendship with her imaginary friend throughout her high school years and into her college life. Simon becomes a barrier between Abby and relationship pain.  It all works wonderfully well until Abby meets her roommates cousin, Quinn.

Quinn happens to be a fellow student in Abby's art appreciation class. He doesn't really appreciate art or the class, but he needs a good grade.  Which means, he needs help!

With a bit of coaxing by her roommate, Jessica, Abby becomes Quinn's tutor and subsequently his friend.  However, Abby makes it clear that she has a long time boyfriend, Simon.  But, that only works for so long.  


Conclusion


Yes, the basis of the story is rather unbelievable.  However if we suspend reality for a few hours, we can really enjoy this romantic comedy.  All of the actors are adorable and fun to watch as they fumble their way through life and make some difficult choices.

This truly is a delightful movie to watch! 

By the way, Love Surreal is also included in Amazon Prime Video.  I just happened to find it on my Hallmark Channel subscription.

  1. I agree, the image for the movie isn't one that would make me want to see the movie, but after your review I do think I'll give it a try. I think I might enjoy it, too.

  2. I so agree with you about the title and the opening picture. Neither one of them would have enticed me to watch this movie, but, with your review I will definitely reconsider. I have had many days where I need a distraction from where my mind wants to wander, so I will have a look see for sure. Thanks for a great review and making me change my mind.

  3. I think the opening image and the title of any movie is just like the cover and title of a book. Some grab you immediately; others not so much. Thus we could miss out on a really good movie or book due to initial impression if not for good reviews such as yours here to entice us. Thanks, Sylvestermouse.

  4. The title and image certainly wouldn’t have appealed to me, either. But the premise of the story, while not exactly realistic, sounds like just the ticket for a bit of lighthearted romantic escapism!

  5. Any movie that brings relief, laughter, or calm, is a movie that has played a key role. Others have thought the same thing you did about the movie's title and cover image, but I wonder if anyone has ever contacted the company to communicate those insights? Perhaps it would help that movie gain a bigger audience. Just thinking out loud...

  6. I find your Hallmark movie reviews delightful! I'll keep my eyes open for this one. They were just advertising the start of the holiday hallmark movies on tv coming up in November. My goodness I can't believe it's going to be November, but I'm ready to say good riddance to 2019.
