Drama: A young woman escapes from Boston to a small southern town and becomes involved with a widowed father, all while hoping her past doesn't catch up with her.
Katie (JULIANNE HOUGH) is a young woman who's gone on the run from Boston, heading south on a bus to get away from a bad situation. Local detective Tierney (DAVID LYONS) is desperate to find her, and has issued an all points bulletin listing her as a murder suspect. She manages to elude him and arrives in the small coastal town of Southport that she initially views as a pit stop, but then realizes could be a safe haven for her. She ends up getting a waitressing job at a local restaurant and a place to live out in the woods near another woman, Jo (COBIE SMULDERS), who similarly favors the isolation of the place.

Katie also ends up befriending widower Alex (JOSH DUHAMEL) who runs the local convenience shop while trying to raise his kids, Josh (NOAH LOMAX) and Lexie (MIMI KIRKLAND). While Katie is initially reluctant to get attached to anyone, she eventually finds herself falling for Alex and vice-versa. As their relationship blossoms, Tierney continues on his relentless quest to track her down and bring her to justice, all with Alex and everyone else unaware of her troubled past.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
