A very feel-good, uplifting sort of story, once you are able to tune into Show’s vibe.
Our story world is on the simple, almost sanitary side of things, and our emotional arcs lean simple as well, which, together, makes it feel a little Hallmark-Disney, in terms of tone.
If you’re able to roll with that, the underdog story that Show serves up is accessible and engaging, and quite slurpable too.
Also, if you’re able to appreciate the idea of “romance in the small things,” instead of the more common big, sweeping romantic declarations that Dramaland tends to serve up, you’d have a good chance of loving the central romance in this too.
On balance, I found this one to be very enjoyable, and well worth the drama hours.
If you’re looking for a holiday movie to watch this New Year’s weekend, Adoring might be a good contender. It came out on 31 December 2019, just in time for New Year’s – so we’re only about a year late? 😁
Show is simple, easy, and it focuses on bringing the feels. And! There’re pets!! What’s not to love, right? 🤩
