Trivia

Alessia Cara had a sinus infection when she recorded the demo version of "I Choose," causing her voice to sound hoarse and shaky. She apologized for this before sending it in, but was surprised to find the directors loved it, as in the film, Cara's character sings the song during a snow storm, and would rightfully sound weaker. The demo version Cara was so nervous about ended up being the final version in the film. See more »

Quotes

Father: I'm your father, and that sweet woman that you insulted with your rude birth is Mother. If you need love, I beg you, find it elsewhere. Thank you. Oh, you are Tim, and you are a Willoughby. Good day, sir.

The Willoughbys gives hope to kids with bad parents
22 April 2020 | by nyxstrixSee all my reviews

I absolutely adored this movie! It took me on an emotional roller coaster through the lows and the highs in the lives of the Willoughbys. I'm certain this is going in my hall of fame. This movie is great for all ages and teaches you the lesson of love and that it doesn't always have to be biological. Someone could learn a thing or two from this movie.
