When We Last Spoke Movie

I had the wonderful opportunity to screen the inspirational movie, “When We Last Spoke,” this past week. It will be in theaters on October 27, 29, 30 & 31. Before I discuss some of my thoughts, here’s a look at the official trailer & synopsis:


When We Last Spoke Synopsis

In 1967, sisters Juliet (Darby Camp) and Evangeline (Chandler Head) are abandoned by their mother at their unsuspecting grandparents’ farm in the small southern town of Fireside. Stunned by their sudden arrival, tender-hearted Walt (Corbin Bernsen) and champion fiddler Ruby (Melissa Gilbert) graciously stand in for the missing parents and create one blue-ribbon recipe for a loving family.

When We Last Spoke Family Dinner

Fireside, home of radio Station KOFF, kept secrets, broken promises and to-die-for sundaes serves as the backdrop for this heartwarming story full of surprises. Top it all off with the unexpected appearance of Walt’s ailing mother—eccentric, Emily Dickinson-quoting Itasca (Cloris Leachman), and laughter and tears abound.

Richly packed with plenty of quirky characters and hilarious escapades, When We Last Spoke is a timeless movie for all ages that digs in deep to things that matter most—family, friends, love, and forgiveness.

My Thoughts

When We Last Spoke - Sisters

While I can’t give away any spoilers, I can discuss my feelings in regards to this movie and the aspects of the movie shown in the trailer and synopsis.

With a runtime of almost 2 hours, you are sure to get your money’s worth. It was well-acted, with a remarkable sense of the times being portrayed. I had a warm feeling watching it, with its light-hearted moments. But, I also felt their pain.

As the oldest of four siblings, I personally faced my own maternal abandonment, so as I watched this movie, it really brought back some of those feelings. It also made me think about my own grandparents, and their role in my life both past and present. I thought about both my grandfathers and my uncle who left home for wars, leaving their families to almost fend for themselves. It made me consider what events in life really seem to bring families together. The title in of itself displays this sentiment.

Overall, I’d definitely recommend you check it out. It feels like a movie that we can all relate to in some form or fashion.
