This article discusses the Netflix film Purple Hearts including the premise, release date, cast, soundtrack, and trailer.
July has certainly been a busy time for Netflix, especially with the release of the series Resident Evil, which will surely split the fans of the video game. But, Netflix continues to release a whole slate of films as part of their original slate — take For Jojo and Persuasion for instance. Both films were highly anticipated.
But how about a romantic film to pull at the heartstrings? Here’s everything we know about the Netflix film Purple Hearts.
Purple Hearts premise
Courtesy of Netflix — In spite of their many differences, Cassie (@sofiacarson), a struggling singer-songwriter, and Luke (@nicholasgalitzine), a troubled marine, agree to marry solely for military benefits. But when tragedy strikes, the line between real and pretend begins to blur. Directed by Elizabeth Allen Rosenbaum (@thisislizallen).
