Rom-com fans can look forward to the endearing new tropical romance THIS LITTLE LOVE OF MINE, making its debut on Netflix worldwide on Wednesday July 7, 2021. THIS LITTLE LOVE OF MINE is the latest film in the romance genre from The Steve Jaggi Company, the team behind the 2020 hit Romance on the Menu, which reached as high as number 2 on Netflix most popular movies list in Australia, and stayed in this top 10 list for a week. Nicely Entertainment handles the worldwide distribution of the movie with Vanessa Shapiro serving as Executive Producer.
Starring Saskia Hampele (The Heights) and Liam McIntyre (Spartacus: Vengeance), THIS LITTLE LOVE OF MINE follows Laura Price, a successful San Francisco lawyer on the cusp of promotion – a far cry from her childhood growing up on a tropical island with best friends Chip and Gem. When the firm’s biggest client – Chip’s grandfather – asks Laura to travel to the island and deliver a contract to make Chip his heir, she leaves behind her practice and fiancé Owen, to convince her childhood friend to sign a contract that will make him a billionaire. As Chip and Laura grow closer, she questions whether she’s engaged to the right man or if she belongs back on the island with her childhood sweetheart.
Streaming to Netflix audiences in over 190 countries, THIS LITTLE LOVE OF MINE was the first feature film to go into production in Australia during the pandemic, and showcases the best of Far North Queensland, with the film shot entirely on location in Palm Cove in 2020. Director Christine Luby comments “It’s wonderful to be able to share this uplifting love story about following your heart with audiences around the world. We shot the film under strict conditions during the pandemic and I know what a tough time this has been for so many people. My hope is that this film can uplift and inspire people and show off the tropical paradise of Australia’s Far North Queensland”.
Lead actor Saskia Hampele comments “I’m over the moon that our beautiful film will have the chance to be seen by romance fans around the world. We had an incredible team and loved every minute making the film in sparkling Palm Cove. I think that really shows on the screen.”
THIS LITTLE LOVE OF MINE delighted audiences at the Gold Coast Film Festival, where it had its world premiere in April 2021. The film is written by Georgia Harrison (Rip Tide) and is the directorial debut of Christine Luby. Supporting cast members include Lynn Gilmartin, Lawrence Ola, Monette Lee, Tiriel Mora and Martin Portus.
