The story is resolved a bit too easily, but that works for the world of the film, which is sanded down, buffed out, a bucolic, Steel Magnolias-inspired fantasy land of wide front porches, charming flower shops and the mega-famous rock stars that wander into them.
FOREVER MY GIRL tells the story of country music super-star Liam Page (Alex Roe) who left his bride, Josie (Jessica Rothe), at the altar choosing fame and fortune instead. However, Liam never got over Josie, his one true love, nor did he ever forget his Southern roots in the small community where he was born and raised. When he unexpectedly returns to his hometown for the funeral of his high school best friend, Liam is suddenly faced with the consequences of all that he left behind.
