South Beach Love (TV Movie 2021). South Beach Love: Directed by Damián Romay. With Taylor Cole, William Levy, Jessica Pacheco, Marina Catalán. Follows a story about rival quinceañeras, glorious Cuban cooking, friendship, family and romance.
“The premise is a slightly different take on bringing together old flames. An Irish-Cuban fusion seemed a bit strange, but worked for me even so. Why not if it brings something to a neighborhood that no one else provides?u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe romance story was about what youu0026#39;d expect, but the teenage girls added a nice touch (even if at least one of them was played by a 19 year old who seemed more like she was in her 20u0026#39;s). Despite my having several friends whou0026#39;ve had quinceañeras, Iu0026#39;ve never been to one and it was nice to see what they are about. I loved the symbolism of the girlu0026#39;s transition into a woman. This might have been the highpoint for me and Iu0026#39;m not sure how rewatchable this is.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eTaylor Cole and William Levy didnu0026#39;t have a lot of chemistry. Levy came off a little too much like he thought he was royalty and somehow Cole didnu0026#39;t seem natural either. Late in the movie their charactersu0026#39; long term familiarity came through, but it never seemed very romantic. Practical and convenient yes, romantic no.”
