Change of Heart is done just as well as the first two movies. I’m emphasized before that even if you haven’t seen the first two, you can still thoroughly enjoy any one in the collection at any point in time. Each film gives a short story update that catches you up to the relevant things presented in the film you are watching.
With sweet innocence and polished sophistication, Change of Heart again brings the pair of sisters together as Elizabeth’s little sister comes for a visit and inevitably causes a little trouble.
As the viewer, I have frequent moments where I want to scream through the television at Julie, Elizabeth’s little sister, then other times when I have to admit the parts of myself from long ago I could see in her innocence.
The bright, unshakeable knowledge that there is good in all people resounds through Julie. As an older sister myself, I can also see the pain and annoyance that plagues Elizabeth as she tries unsuccessfully to help her sister make the right decisions.
Don’t feel too bad for the guys though, there is adventure just waiting to get out as the film progresses. Beyond the sisterly relationship, Elizabeth’s romantic interest Jack the Mountie is mixing things up a little.
It was a great storyline as Jack did what any good mounty would do: followed his instinct to protect the one he loved and Coal Valley regardless of his own safety.
