Andrew McDonnell has been calling Hannah about getting information to write a biography for his PhD dissertation about her musician husband, Hunter Miles. Hannah is trying to write this book herself but she’s finding it to be too difficult. She is still too close to the subject and that her husband died. Hannah finally agrees to provide information for Andrew to write this book. It is still difficult for Hannah because she doesn’t want to let go of the past or any of its details.
Hall and Sudeikis have chemistry together and the scenery in this area is very rough but beautiful. Hannah has two dogs and they are a part of this film too with their pushiness. A LOT of fans come to Hunter’s grave and they leave things behind for him. Hannah collects them when she goes to visit. 3 ½* (I liked this movie)
