This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Hallmark Hall of Fame. All opinions are 100% mine.
A couple of weeks ago I shared how excited I was about the premiere of Hallmark Hall of Fame’s Away & Back on the Hallmark Channel. I am a sucker for a sappy movie with happy ending, and Away & Back looked like it would fit the bill. So, of course, I had to watch it!
In the movie, Frankie’s dad Jack (Jason Lee) struggles with being a single dad and running a business. He is a good dad who supports his kids, but he doesn’t understand why the fact that swans that have taken up residence in the family’s pond are so important to the kids.
He doesn’t even understand how important until a tragic accident happens to one of the swans. It is then that the family meets know-it-all ornithologist Ginny Newsom (Minka Kelly), who doesn’t recognize her own passions in Frankie until long after she takes the swan eggs that Frankie rescued away from her.
Away & Back is a heartwarming family movie that will make you smile (and wish there was a swan living in your pond).

This looks like a movie that my fiance would really enjoy. This movie sounds a lot like many other Hallmark movies that are “feel-good” movies.
I would love to see this movie
Not only would this be a great day to watch on valentines but also a a great family movie that we’d look forward to
I have watched this 3 times on the Hallmark Channel. I just love this movie.

I’m usually not a huge fan of sappy love stories but I think I could give this movie a shot. I’m more excited about the sweepstake to win a trip.
I’ve never heard of this movie. It looks very good. Thanks for sharing!

This is an excellent family movie! I am saving it on my Wish List for a purchase in the near future. After watching it on the Hallmark Channel, I want to pick up a copy for our family to watch it again.
