When Calls The Heart: Canadian West (Movie Pilot)

Film Description:

When Calls The Heart – Elizabeth Thatcher, a cultured young teacher in 1910, fears leaving her comfortable world in the city. But when she accepts a teaching position in a frontier town, she finds new purpose and love with a handsome Royal Canadian Mountie.

A classic prairie romance based upon the novel by best-selling author Janette Oke, When Calls The Heart tells the story of Elizabeth Thatcher, a cultured, young Eastern school teacher who takes a teaching position in the hardscrabble Alberta frontier. Despite the many hardships of frontier life, she cares deeply for the school children. But she has closed her heart to love ­ until she meets handsome Wynn, a member of the Royal Northwest Mounted Police.

This family movie, set in 1910 in the beautiful foothills of the Rocky Mountains, is a co-production with Believe Pictures of Los Angeles and directed by Michael Landon Jr.

    2012 hopefully – if you sign up for our newsletter we’ll make sure and announce when it’s coming out as soon as we know. Otherwise you’ll have to keep checking back every once in awhile to find out.

    I have read all 4 parts to this movie. I would love to watch the movie. Do you know what is keeping the movie from being released?

    We are looking forward to this coming out as well but so far no news on the release date. We aren’t sure why there is a delay either. The best way to find out when it’s coming out is to subscribe to our CFDb newsletter. We list the upcoming films on the month a movie comes out.

    I hope it does come out, I have just read book one, and I’ve yet to read the rest, but I’m already in love with the story plot which is a very “Innocently Romantic” book that I would recommend to my daughters. I have read most of Janet Oke’s books and really love her writing style, which is honest, homey, and spiritual.

    I would keep a look out on the Hallmark channel for they will be doing Janette Oke’s When calls the Heart sometime at the end of the 2012 or early 2013.

    On amazon a reviewer noted that the DVD of When Calls the Heart contains a PG-13 and R rated preview. Has anyone else seen these previews? If so, what are the previews for and do they contain objectionable materials? Thank you!

  15. Annelie says
    08 January 14, 9:00am

    Really? I hadn’t heard that before. From watching the movie pilot I can’t even imagine anything that would be considered R rating from the entire movie. Has anyone else heard anything?

    I thought the movie was great. I don’t think much of the series. Hallmark changed the characters which to me, they should of kept as the series is built on that movie. Also, the Mountie travels with her in the movie, and leaves in the end with Elizabeth seemingly in love with him and chasing him out in the street in the end. The series started out showing her traveling alone, and all of a sudden, he is not in the series, but a new Mountie pops up. Very off the original script. Would of been better just starting with the series and forgetting the movie.

    30 January 14, 4:38pm

    I agree with you Curt.

    Hi I was wondering, I watched this movie and loved it but is there a second one still to come out about what happens next cause I know it ended abrupt, unfinished? I haven’t read the books so I don’t know?

  19. Annelie says
    09 April 14, 6:14pm

    There is a series and hopefully they will continue to series next season.
