Love Again (2023) is a remake of the successful 2016 German-language rom-com SMS Fuer Dich, based on the book written by Sofie Cramer. It tells the story of a young woman who is heartbroken by the death of her fiancé and sends text messages to his old number which, unbeknownst to her, has been reassigned. The messages are received by a single guy across town, and he is so moved by her messages that the two form a connection.

The film is directed by Jim Strouse (People Places Things, The Incredible Jessica James) and stars Priyanka Chopra Jonas (The Matrix  Resurrections, The White Tiger) as Mira, Sam Heughan (Outlander, The Spy Who Dumped Me) as Rob, Russell Tovey (Flesh and Blood (2020), The Good Liar) as Billy Brooks, and singer Céline Dion, who also composed new music for the film.

Production visited Kent to film at Home Farm in Swale, which doubles for Mira’s parent’s home, where she stays after the unexpected death of her fiancé.

Home Farm is a colonial style American homestead, with veranda’s overlooking the countryside bordered by woods. It is particularly popular for photoshoots, but has also been featured in The Current War (2019), Juliet, Naked (2018) and The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2017).

Love Again (2023) was released in UK Cinemas on Friday 12th May 2023 and is available to stream on Amazon.
