Saw it. My husband walks in while I was watching it, watched a bit, and said, "I would just once like to see her do a movie with her real voice." He's been to conventions and heard your voice. I tried hard to send via telepathy, "Would you please let me watch this." Didn't work, but I did finally got to watch without anymore comments from the Peanut Gallery.
That aside, I really liked the ending, especially how Athena finally tried to reach out and be friends with her soon to be daughter-in-law. I also got the hurt Athena felt when her kids wanted to move away. We want to keep our kids close to us, even in adulthood. But they grow up sooner or later and want to spread their wings. Ten years later and I still have empty nest syndrome (my older son moved out when he was 24 and I still don't have a daughter-in-law, even though he lives with 2 women. Dont ask. That's not even talking about my younger son, who's a hot mess, which is an understatement).
Did you have to learn a tiny bit of Greek for the movie or do you know Greek already?
Marina is fluent in Greek as far as I know.
It's going to be on Hallmark again, according to Frndly on October 16. I have set to record it so I watch it later, due to my husband not being a Hallmart movie fan.
Of course, A 1000 Little Cuts is good (haven't seen it yet, but have high expectations). After all, she's a great counselor. lol
Agreed. I haven't taken time to see a lot of them, but the ones I have blow me away.
1000 Little Cuts was an EXCELLENT movie
Just found out Marina brought her forum back. Thank the gods of Betazed! :) Anyway, I'm glad to see this post too because I didn't know she was in this movie. I am going to have to see it. BTW, I was so glad to see you in Picard too. :)
IMO this is one of Marina's finest roles outside of Star Trek!!
@Marina you're fabulous!! 💕💕💕
And agreed, LOVE LOVE the wardrobe!
I agree 💯 Melissa! @Marina is absolutely incomparable.
From Germany, thank you so much for posting the screentshots! I really appreciate it. You did a fantastic job! BTW, Hallmark must have more money than Paramount! 🤣🤣🤣 Talk about never wearing the same outfit twice! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THE CLOTHES!!!
From germany, you are welcome. :)
And the clothes are the bomb.
I'm finally going to sit down with my mom tomorrow and watch this. She was in the hospital when it premiered and she's finally well enough that we can watch it together. I showed her the trailer on Youtube and she said it looks great, but she said it's going to be weird not seeing you as Troi 😂
So, I just finished watching the movie with my mom. We even had baklava to make the experience more authentic. First thing my mom said is "This is eerily familiar. I feel like I'm watching a home movie of my relatives and my own wedding". But she said the movie was really good and she enjoyed watching it. My mom also said Marina is a phenomenal actress and that Marina looked fabulous and she loved Marina's energy throughout the movie. Oh, and Athena was the epitome of her mom (my grandmother). My mom's words, not mine. So, that's my mom's movie review 😂🧿🇬🇷
That's amazing, I signed up just to see you, then Star Trek I couldn't resist signing up to watch too. You look amazing. I will be looking forward to future projects with you wherever you take us. Things are getting better. Stay healthy. Thank you for shining brightly. I am impressed. Take shit from no one!
Here are the last screencaps. Sorry for posting them so late.
Oh I really dont do much. Just hope for the right time to snap the pic and work on some lighting and adjustments on the coloring and stuff like that. Marina herself is like you said, the reason why they look so good. And youre welcome
Thank you. Or well thanks to marina.
Yes, where she gave the future daughter-in-law a gift and really tried to be her friend. That's the best scene, IMO. Second to that was when both mothers brought fiance to talk to his future wife. Great scenes
I LOVE how My Big Fat Greek Wedding got a mention in this movie☺️
Personally, my fav screencaps yet ;)
Haha omg you are the first one to notice. When i was lookig through the screencaps i was like "oops" but.. its still a great cap
Yeah, nothing wrong with a little fun;-)
Oh yes, the two mothers together, also a great scene.
Would it be only possible to watch the movie on the Hallmark website or is it also coming somewhere else? (Iam very sorry I am not a star with online streaming, maybe this is a strange question. I only have a little experience with Disney plus).
The movie looks wonderful on the pictures and trailer! I think it is a feel good movie.
You can on the hallmark website if you’re in the US
Angie is staying with me this week and we finally managed to track down the movie and watched it this morning!
Marina, you were fabulous! It wasn't what I expected because I thought Athena was going to be really mean but I LOVED this character, she was absolutely adorable and really did have Ilana's best wishes at heart. The perfect summer movie and I hope it was as fun to film as it was to watch.
Angie just turned to me as I write this and said "I loved that movie, it was cute as fuck" 😂
Our favourite moment was - Athena: "Ilana's says I'm lampgassing her!" haha!
Will be watching again soon! PERFECTION!
Also, anyone else really want to try making Marina's baklava recipe now? https://www.marinasirtis.tv/baklava-recipe
🤣 I really did think about it, made me kinda hungry but 4 am just wasn't the right time🤣 I have to make sure there's butter on every layer and lots of filling😂😂😂
Screencaps part 3 :) - enjoy
Thanks a lot!!! Can't wait for it to be available in Spain! Marina looks amazing in everything she wears!
Love them all 💗
