When Calls the Heart: A Telling Silence
I never quite expect a third movie to be as touching as the first, yet When Calls the Heart: A Telling Silence managed to reach out and pull heart strings as well as its predecessors. Each of the When Calls the Heart movies have somehow been able to reach deep within and I look forward to seeing what Michael Landon, JR does next. They manage to tell this very touching story without anything inappropriate and without being predictable. A movie that has you wanting to yell at the characters on the screen is, in my book, always a winner.
