We have our first ‘Brampton’s Own’ review! Rick Bentley has reviewed the film for Norwalk Reflector, and his verdict is that the film is “a refreshing love story in a feature film world where this kind of sweetness isn’t always embraced.” He particularly praises Rose’s performance, stating “The secret weapon of ‘Brampton’s Own” is McIver, one of the most underrated performers working today”! We love to see Rose getting the recognition she deserves, and hopefully more people will be introduced to her talent with the release of the film later this week. ‘Brampton’s Own’ will be released in select theaters and digitally on October 19 (this Friday) – make sure you go see it if it’s showing in your area, or purchase your own copy online if it’s not!

Norwalk | It’s unusual outside the Hallmark and Lifetime cable channels to find a movie that embraces romance with intelligence. Too often, feature films start out with a romantic edge but either give way to deep psychological trauma or an overindulgence of sex.

“Brampton’s Own” never falls into those dark areas, but instead looks at love through the perspective of two likable people who should be together but must find a way to overcome a major obstacle. The script by writer/director Michael Doneger examines whether or not it’s possible for true love to be trumped by ambition.

The film looks at what happens when Dustin Kimmel (Alex Russell) faces the harsh reality that after 12 years of playing baseball at the minor league level, his chances of making it to the major leagues have become increasingly more fleeting. After another heartbreak, Kimmel decides to return to his small hometown of Brampton, where he was a sports hero.

He discovers that almost everyone he knows, including his mother (Jean Smart), have moved on with their own lives. His high school sweetheart, Rachel Kinley (Rose McIver), has made some monumental decisions that don’t include him. Kimmel faces a crossroad of whether it is his fate to continue to chase his baseball dream or shift his energies to winning back the heart of the woman he still loves.

The only way this kind of sweet romance can work is if the main players are so likable there’s an investment in what decisions they make. Both Russell and McIver prove up to the challenge, making the characters feel real.

The secret weapon of ‘Brampton’s Own” is McIver, one of the most underrated performers working today. Through her work on “iZombie,” she’s shown a chameleon-like ability to play anything from an old man to a magician. Here, McIver brings a sweetness and strength to Kinley.

At the heart is the romantic dance is the couple, but Doneger layers the film with other relationships, including the connection between a mother and her son. Smart finds a way to play a mom who has a great love for her son while also willing to be the voice of reason. Casting Smart was a smart move by Doneger.

Doneger’s writing gets a little scattered when the story shifts away from the star-crossed lovers. But when he brings the focus back to them, the story works. Doneger doesn’t give into the standard ways of thinking about love and the labors when it is lost. Doneger respects the audience enough to take some big chances.

“Brampton’s Own” is miles away from having the scope of a “Bull Durham,” but it is a refreshing love story in a feature film world where this kind of sweetness isn’t always embraced.

“Brampton’s Own” will be released theatrically in limited markets Friday but also will be available on digital platforms and through local cable providers.

Hello Rose fans! The sequel to Rose’s much talked about Christmas film “A Christmas Prince” from last year now has a release date. Entertainment Weekly exclusively announced earlier today that Netflix will release the film (titled “A Christmas Prince 2: The Royal Wedding”) on November 30, 2018. We also got the first production still of Rose, which is now available in our gallery! Read on to learn the synopsis of the much anticipated sequel.

EW | Hallmark and Lifetime aren’t the only networks in the Christmas TV movie business. Netflix, which first hung out its stocking last year, is upping its mistletoe-and-merriment quotient this year, and you can get a first look at its offerings below.

The streamer’s slate is highlighted with the sequel to last year’s buzzed-about A Christmas Prince. Airing Nov. 30, A Christmas Prince: The Royal Wedding takes place a year after Amber (Rose McIver) helped Prince Richard (Ben Lamb) take the crown, and the two are preparing for a Christmas wedding… but everything is thrown into the air when Amber questions whether she’s ready to play queen, and Richard must deal with a “political crisis that threatens to tarnish not only the holiday season, but the future of the kingdom.”

I want to start today’s post by wishing a belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY to our girl, who turned 30 years old this week!! Rose’s birthday was on October 10, and she celebrated it with all her closest friends. Her bestfriend (and old “Maddigan’s Quest”co-star) Fleur Seville and George Byrne put together a big surprise party for her, which you can find a video from on Rose’s official instagram here. Those who’ve been with us for a few years know that we always try to put together something special for her birthday, but time would not allow it this year. We will make up for it by putting together something extra big next birthday! Rose seemed to have an amazing day with her closest friends, and I hope the coming year will bring her lots of joy, new opportunities and experiences. She never stops to amaze me with her hard work, talent & kindness, and I can’t wait to see what’s up next for her – I know it’ll be something big!

Now over to the new update – Rose has began promoting Brampton’s Own! On Monday morning (October 8), she was a guest at KTLA Morning News, where she talked about her upcoming film.

Hello friends! I have now caught up on iZombie season 4, by adding screencaps from the missing episodes which aired after I closed the site in May. There’s 4 total, and you can find links to all below! My favorites are the caps from episode 12, “You’ve Got To Hide Your Liv Away” – Rose/Liv looked gorgeous in the scenes of her and Major on old, happy couple brains (who turned out to not be all that happy after all…). All in all I thought it was another great season, and Rose once again impressed with every episode! Enjoy the new additions to our site, and stay tuned for “Brampton’s Own” updates up next.

Hello Roses! Have you missed us? After a 5 months long break, I have decided to bring Rose McIver Online back online. Back in May it felt like it was the right decision to close the doors of Rose-McIver.com, but I’ve been missing the site too much since parting with it. Next year it’ll be 10 years since we created the very first version of the site, and despite a couple of breaks over the years, it’s been following Rose’s career from her early days in Hollywood. With iZombie going into its fifth and final season, I definitely didn’t want to miss covering the show one final time, as it has become one of Rose’s most known and loved projects to date. While I wish the show could go on, I’m really happy they were given a season to close up the story – and I want to say goodbye to our favorite zom-com-rom-dram by following it with you all here at the site.

I will catch up with the missing season 4 photos and screen captures of iZombie up first, as well as everything related to Rose’s upcoming film “Brampton’s Own”. But for our first update back, I’ve updated our gallery with 4 high quality photos of Rose at the Fan Expo Canada on September 1st! Check them out below, and be sure to visit us again soon for many new updates!
