Get ready to fall in love! The Hallmark Channel has announced the premiere of a new romantic comedy featuring an exciting lesbian romance.
In "Love, Classified," the official synopsis unveils a story centered around Emilia, a passionate romance novelist who reenters the lives of her adult children, Taylor and Zach. Her return is cleverly orchestrated as a book signing event organized by their hometown's local bookstore. As Emilia strives to reconnect with her family, Taylor and Zach embark on a journey of exploring both new and past relationships through the "Classifie" app, which rekindles old-fashioned human connections reminiscent of classified ads.
Throughout the narrative, "Classifie" becomes a powerful catalyst for bonding among the characters, offering a distinct avenue for individuals to discover love and meaningful connections. For Zach, it becomes an opportunity to heal old wounds, while Taylor finds herself matched with Franki, a woman who challenges her preconceived notions of love.
Drawing inspiration from Lex, the free-text-centered social and dating app for LGBTQ+ individuals, "Classifie" also plays a significant role in the film by serving as a platform for promoting businesses and advertising products.
Stacey N. Harding, an accomplished director in the film and television industry known for her work on hit shows such as “Charmed,” “Timeless,” and “Arrow,” as well as films like “Cut, Color, Murder” and “Christmas Sail,” is directing this movie. Harding has brought her competent eye for visual storytelling to bear on this upcoming project. And she's not the only one. Lesbian writer Lynn Sternberger (The Bold Type, Home Economics) captures all the nuances of Taylor and Franki's relationship, from the fun-loving moments to the more serious ones.
Melora Hardin is also a delight to watch in the role of Emilia. She knows how to bring out the strongest qualities in the character, balancing the mischievous nature of Emilia with energy, enthusiasm, and spirit. Every scene she's in is simply captivating, and it's clear that she was perfectly cast for the role. She is entertaining, captivating, and a pure pleasure from beginning to end.
With its well-crafted story, likable and endearing characters, and heartwarming romance, it's no wonder why this lesbian film has become a go-to favorite for many. “Love, Classified” is one of those films that you can watch over and over and still enjoy.
