Adapted from Tess Wakefield’s 2017 book of the same name, Purple Hearts refrains from the corniness of romantic movies and touches upon real-life issues. The movie does use the classic trope of a marriage of convenience, which ultimately leads to the protagonists falling in love. However, the predictable romance has a beautiful sensitivity and tenderness that immediately made it a crowd favorite. What adds to and encapsulate the beauty of this film is its soundtrack, especially this one song.
