The Art of Us (2017) - Hallmark Re-imagines 'My Fair Lady'

Friday, May 26, 2017

Last weekend, Saturday May 20th was "Eliza Doolittle Day." I don't know how "real" this is, but it sounded like a fun thing to knowledge (#WishfulWonder sure took advantage of it!) and perhaps, evoked in us memories of the classic film My Fair Lady

Whether consciously or not, Hallmark Channel took full advantage of the day and premiered a new original that revises the classic. Set in the contemporary world, the story isn't so much "remake" as it is an extension that honors a timeless and romantic classic. 

The Art of Us, based on the novel by Teri Wilson (who also wrote Hallmark's Unleashing Mr. Darcy - which you all know I 100% adore), is a celebration of its inspiration. The changes, the unique markers and the cast all make this one an effortless 90 minutes of entertainment sure to leave you with a happy smile.

Saturday, May 20th celebrated a special character that lives inside a classic, old-fashioned story. May the twentieth is Eliza Doolittle Day which places a spotlight on the leading lady of My Fair Lady. Whether or not Hallmark Channel was aware, this past Saturday they celebrated the day with an original, The Art of Us. Continue Reading on Silver Petticoat Review →
