Coffee Shop - UP Premiere Movie
Premiere: Sunday, September 14 at 7 P.M. EDT/6 P.M. PDT
Coffee Shop is the story of Donavan Turner (Laura Vandervoort), a smart, independent, twenty-something woman looking for just the right blend of happiness in her life. She owns a hip neighborhood coffee shop in a quaint, scenic beach town and her specialty is matching people to their perfect, new brew. While she’s been less than successful fixing her love life, Donavan enjoys her work and has the robust support of her sister Becky (Rachel Hendrix), Becky’s boyfriend Kevin (Jason Burkey) and the wonderful, eclectic family of her coffee shop regulars. Unfortunately, she’s keeping a secret from them all. The new bank owner, Frank Miller (Jon Lovitz), won’t extend her loan and she’s facing immediate foreclosure. Things get further complicated when Donovan’s ex-boyfriend Patrick (Josh Ventura) returns to declare his love just as her clashes with Broadway playwright -- and tea-drinker – Ben Carson (Cory M. Grant) get interesting. Ben is in town writing his new play for his producer (Kevin Sorbo). With love brewing and financial ruin bubbling around her, Donovan realizes that her identity and self-worth are not defined by what she can accomplish alone. Instead, Donovan – and her community – can accomplish more together, which leads her to make choices she may not have before.
