All Things Valentine is a heartfelt new romantic movie that is coming to the Hallmark Channel this Saturday. All Things Valentine, which is directed by Gary Harvey and written by JB White, is about a blogger and newspaper columnist who falls in love with a man who's been leaving angry comments under her blog posts.
Filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, it stars Sarah Rafferty as Avery Parker, Sam Page as Brendan Bates, Mike Dopud as Reed, Heather Doerksen as Hannah, Beverley Elliott as Maggie, Kimberly Sustad as McKeenna, and Brenda Crichlow as Lauren Post, according to the Internet Movie Database (IMDb). Hallmark Channel fans can also look forward to hearing music from the soundtrack "Bae You and I" by Gelsea Mae.
All Things Valentine picks up its story with the tenacious Avery Parker, a newspaper columnist and blogger who's been given the assignment of writing about women and Valentine's Day, a holiday that she detests due to her past failed relationships. Avery might not be the right person for this subject since she has literally no tolerance for women who allow themselves to be used and dumped every single Valentine's Day. In her popular blog column, she gives her love-sick female readers some harsh advice about how to stop putting up with their boyfriends' bad behavior.
However, Avery just might be changing her mind about love after she meets Brenden, a handsome veterinarian who looks after her dog. Developing a huge crush on the vet, Avery and Brenden eventually meet up for their first date.
Avery realizes that she may have just bought herself a bouquet of problems when she discovers that Brendan's ex-girlfriend, an avid reader of her blog, used her advice in order to dump him. Meanwhile, Brendan blames the columnist's relationship advice for their breakup, causing him to lash out by leaving angry comments under Avery's post.
The bitter online exchange heats up, capturing the attention of the public and gaining a massive following. Although the two initially can't stand each other, Brandon starts to see something in Avery that he hasn't seen in other women, prompting him to pursue her until their passions ignite. Will they both give in to their newly found attraction to each other, or are they both flirting with disaster?
All Things Valentine Hallmark viewers will especially enjoy the wonderful red and pink colors that flow throughout the film, colors that truly make Valentine's Day a special day for avid romantics. In an interview with Sarah Rafferty, she reveals that the movie about hope and about appreciating the people who are part of your life at the moment, even if that means not being involved in a romantic relationship.
