Story: Finding You starts when violinist Finley Sinclair (Reid) finds her latest audition getting rejected, deciding to take the same trip her late-brother took to a small Irish Coastal Village for a semester abroad. Finley is staying with the same host family in their B&B Nora (Bell) and the overly excitable Emma (Jackson), only for the heartthrob actor Beckett Rush (Goodacre).

As Finley starts to get used to the village, she finds herself spending more time with Beckett, despite the different worlds they have come from, as we slowly get to see how the pair want something more from their current lives.

Thoughts on Finding You

ThoughtsFinding You continues the tradition of needing to move away from the place holding you back in search of finding yourself, travelling to see the world will give you a chance of the unexpected in your life. Finley is a delightful character that is trying to find herself, seeing her dreams pushed away from her, while feeling left out from what her brother once achieved. Beckett on the other hand is a young actor that has always been in the spotlight since he was a child, not having any control over his life. The unlikely pair find themselves drawn together, getting through the small-town environment, that is drawn towards traditions over the success of fame. The performances from Rose Reid and Jedidiah Goodacre are great in the leading couple, while the supporting characters are all bought to life in their own way. This is one of the sweet little romantic comedies that will have the charm needed to get through, saved from being too routine, by the beautiful Irish countryside.

Final Thoughts Finding You enjoyable romantic comedy, filled with heart and passion.
