Hallmark showcases a 'Dummy', takes a 'Spin' next month

MUMBAI: Hallmark will air the film Dummy on 29 May at 9:45 pm. The film stars Oscar winner Adrien Brody The Pianist and Mila Jovovich.

The main protagonist Steven lives with his eccentric parents and his sister Heidi in the suburbs. They love him, but don't really understand him or his passion for following the unusual dream of becoming a ventriloquist.

But in a world surrounded by misfits and eccentrics his dream makes sense. His best friend Fangora is a punk rocker with a lot of attitude, a lot of bad advice, and a unique style. His sister Heidi is a wildly emotional wedding planner obsessed with Michael her ex-fiancé who is currently stalking her. Heidi meanwhile needs a band for the wedding she is planning and in desperation hires Fangora.

Happy to have her first gig, Fangora throws herself into teaching her punk rock band mates traditional wedding music. The results are surprising to say the least. When the wedding day arrives, everyone takes part including Fangora and her band, Steven and his dummy as entertainment, Heidi as the wedding planner, and Lorena as a guest.

Michael even shows up unexpectedly in a violent last ditch effort to get Heidi back. Steven in a surprising show of strength and resolution comes to her rescue, gaining the respect of his respect of his friends and family, and the recognition and love of Lorena.

Hallmark will also air the film Spin on 22 May at 9:45 pm. It stars Ryan Merriman, Stanley Tucci and Dana Delany. Eight -year old Eddie's parents are killed when the plane his father is piloting crashes into a mountain near their home. Eddie's uncle Frank, who is also a pilot, is left to care for the boy. Soon, however, Frank takes a long-term job abroad and Eddie is left to be raised by ranch manager Ernesto and his school-teacher wife Margaret.

When Frank returns ten years later and fulfills his brother's wish that Eddie be taught to fly, Eddie struggles to find his bearings as a young man with mixed emotions toward his uncle, his love for the couple who raised him, the loss of his birth parents, and his blossoming first love with Francesca.

Based on the novel by Donald Everett Axinn, Spin is a story of life and loss; courage and conviction and the will to be a family born of wings.
