Netflix has released a military-themed adult romance film- and its name is derived from a medal awarded to those wounded and killed in action.
Purple Hearts, starring Sofia Carson and Nicholas Galitzine, revolves around the two getting married just for the benefits provided by the military.
“In spite of their many differences, Cassie (Sofia Carson), a struggling singer-songwriter, and Luke (Nicholas Galitzine), a troubled marine, agree to marry solely for military benefits. But when tragedy strikes, the line between real and pretend begins to blur,” a NetFlix description reads.
In the film, Cassie is working as a bartender but was recently diagnosed with diabetes, leaving her with medical debt.
In an attempt to cover her costs, she proposes getting married to her friend in the Army, saying they could split the increase in pay (basic housing allowance) while she receives military healthcare.
After her friend turns down her offer, Luke -a Marine desperate to be married- steps in to take up her offer of a sham marriage for benefits.
Being a romance movie, the fake marriage ends up leading to more.
The movie was adapted by Kyle Jarrow and Liz Garcia from a book of the same name by Tess Wakefield.
According to MovieWeb, the film will be released soon.
