The Good Witch: Directed by Craig Pryce. With Catherine Bell, Chris Potter, Catherine Disher, Peter MacNeill. A darkly beautiful and mysterious woman comes in to town and inhabits the local haunted mansion, making everyone wonder if she’s a witch or “The Grey Lady”.
“Lovely Catherine Bell is perfectly cast as Cassandra Nightingale, a beautiful and mysterious newcomer who opens a shop in the small town of Middleton and has a knack of solving peopleu0026#39;s problems with relative ease. She quickly makes a good impression on the widowed police chief (Chris Potter) and his kids. Unfortunately, she makes a bad impression on the mayoru0026#39;s wife, a busybody who leads a campaign to have Cassieu0026#39;s shop closed down because sheu0026#39;s a witch. The question of whether she really is a witch is never definitively answered. The movie does a clever and cute job of keeping that mystery intact right up until the final (and somewhat odd) slow-mo shot. The cast backing up Catherine Bell is extremely likable and appealing. The Good Witch has a wholesome quality about it but itu0026#39;s never corny or cloying. I especially appreciated the movieu0026#39;s leisurely pace. The score helps, as well. Itu0026#39;s a relaxing movie with a little bit of humor, drama, and romance…and a lot of magic.”
