THE LOST HUSBAND (2020): The Things I Liked…

Josh Duhamel, Leslie Bibb and Nora Dunn’s latest movie The Lost Husband is a film I enjoyed a little more than I expected to.

Directed by Vicky Wight, it’s a story that focuses on Libby (Bibb), a newly single mother who’s trying to put her life back together after her husband dies. And she starts by moving – along with her two children to her no-nonsense aunt’s goat farm in central Texas.

What stood from the very beginning for me as The Lost Husband played is the rather pleasant musical score. Then I noticed the films even pacing and the way it’s arguably not quite as clichéd as the Hallmark movies you may or may not have seen (*wink, wink). Particularly since this story is that little bit more complicated, among one or two other reasons.

Being in the mood mood for an ‘easy viewing’ movie experience with a little romance is the reason t I decided to watch The Lost Husband. The trailer also had me wanting to see Libby make it through the grief so she could start having fun again.

As Libby met the colourful town folk and started to learn more about farm life, largely from Duhamel’s farm manager character, James, it soon became clear that Libby was going to be all right. That’s around the time I started wishing that I too had an aunt who lived on a farm. That is until I remembered my irrational fear of earthworms, bugs and many other animals.

The only thing that I wish wasn’t quite so about The Lost Husband is its use of a specific cliché involving a group of jealous and unpleasant women during a scene in the town market. Some of the writing and acting in said scene stood out for the wrong reasons. Yet, I till say that if you’re intrigued enough, then give The Lost Husband a chance. Especially when it’s time for an ‘easy viewing’ film session.

There’s also the simple pleasure of Duhamel in a Cowboy hat. You know, in case watching Libby get her life back on track and the idea of a virtual farm-based escape doesn’t quite cut it.

Read my spoiler-free movie review of The Lost Husband (2020).


Josh Duhamel, Leslie Bibb, Nora Dunn and Kevin Alejandro are the stars of The Lost Husband, the story of Libby (Bibb), a newly single mother trying to put her life back together after her husband dies.

Based on the best selling book by Katherine Center and directed by  Vicky Wight, Libby and her children move to her estranged Aunt’s goat farm in central Texas, and soon they meet James (Duhamel).

I want to see Libby overcome, get her life back in order make for a great farm girl. That way I can believe I too could learn to do it too… should the opportunity arise.

I’m also just in for a little romance during these ‘social distancing’ times.

Georgia King, Carly Pope, Herizen F. Guardiola, Nora Dunn, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Callie Hope Haverda, Ashlyn Rainn Holmes, Roxton Garcia, Grey Acuna, Stone Garcia and Marquel Skinner also star.

The Lost Husband Release Dates: April 10th, 2020 (US)…

LOVE, SIMON (2018): New Trailer From Jennifer Garner, Josh Duhamel, Nick Robinson…

Greg Berlanti directs Nick Robinson, Jennifer Garner and Josh Duhamel in Love, Simon; a new coming-of-age drama about the hilarious, scary, life-changing and complicated love story of a young closeted gay man…

As a friend pointed out, this movie may just be the first mainstream teen film where the central story is about the coming out of a young gay man. This isn’t a thing I’ve seen before. I could be wrong of course, but at this momment, I remember no other mainstream teenage movie with a gay male protagonist.

I’m curious enough to watch it because of this uniqueness and because Nick Robinson wasn’t terrible in Everything, Everything (2017).

Talitha Eliana Bateman, Katherine Langford and Keiynan Lonsdale also star.
