Synopsis

Katherine Sherard has worked hard for her solitary life. She has no close family, rarely dates, and has only a small handful of friends — just the way she likes it. That is, until she meets Audrey Adler, an outgoing, high-spirited 17 year old who reveals herself to be Katherine’s half-sister in desperate need of a home.

Now with the responsibility of raising her newly discovered sister, Katherine’s world is turned upside down. Through a series of events, it seems as though Katherine needs Audrey to help her through life’s struggles as much as Audrey needs Katherine.

Dove Review

“The Hepburn Girls” is a movie with a twist, featuring two sisters named Audrey (Paige Campbell) and Katherine (Ashley Raymer-Brown), of course! The story opens with Katherine Sherard, in her early 30s. She’s a single woman who has painful memories of her past, which focus on an accident in which a boy she liked died. She learns she has a half-sister named Audrey, 17, whose parents just died, and she wants to come live with her sister. They are an odd-ball couple at first. Audrey is outgoing, warm and open, and Katherine is more reserved and has enjoyed living alone. Or has she? She has started noticing a man around town named Patrick. She likes him, but she has never met him. However, that is about to change.

During the course of the film, the sisters begin to form a bond and navigate through some difficult waters. When “Duke,” a man who has been like a father to Katherine, has a heart attack, Katherine begins to assess what is most important in life.

This delightful movie features comedic moments. For example, a young man is in a relationship with a character named Penny because he “doesn’t like conflict!” The film also includes a bit of romance and the theme of having faith in God to turn circumstances around for the good, no matter how bad they are in the beginning. We are awarding this film our “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages 12-plus.
