‘For Love And Honor’: Hallmark’s Romantic, Military Movie To Be A Hit Among Veterans, Starring James Denton, Sheppard Denton, And Natalie Brown

For Love And Honor is a new military-based movie that is set to premiere on the Hallmark channel this Saturday. Directed by Laurie Lind and written by Gary Goldstein and Mark Amato, For Love And Honor brings a quirky, liberal teacher and an ex-soldier together to save a failing military academy. It stars James Denton as Tom Brennan, Natalie Brown as Caroline, and Sheppard Denton as Mason, according to IMDB and Broadway World.

For Love & Honor Hallmark Movie Synopsis

When a once-popular and well-respected military academy is threatened with closure, school officials need someone who can come in and get the school in tip top shape. No other man can do the job other than Col. Tom Brennan, a former military man who has just arrived back to his hometown after an injury. With his style and technique, there’s no doubt he has what it takes to turn the academy around.

However, Tom is not sure he can do it. After all, he was a military soldier not an administrator. After further convincing, Tom takes the job and immediately butts heads with Natalie, the school’s Dean of Academics, who uses unconventional methods to teach her children.

Tom Brennan thinks Natalie is off of her rocker after he sees her using yoga and electronics in the classroom. After an entire career in the military, it’s obvious that the new ‘commandant-in-chief’ has not fully acclimated to the modern world, and his rigid by-the-book rules are sure to set the students back.

But as Tom and Natalie continue to work together, something interesting happens. It appears that though they are complete opposites, they have one goal in mind–to save the military academy. Now, their differences seem to compliment each other in a way that leads them into a blossoming romance that they hadn’t expected–a romance with just the right chemistry to save the school from disaster.
