Purple Hearts is about a struggling musician and a Marine who decide to marry for the military benefits. However, they end up finding a genuine love connection. The film stars former Disney star Sofia Carson and Nicholas Galitzine. Carson pulled triple-duty for the film, not only starring as Cassie but also serving as an executive producer and songwriter. During an interview with PEOPLE, Carson described juggling all of these different roles as "fulfilling."
"I think I've been really lucky that a lot of the projects that I have been a part of have allowed me to do everything that I love as an artist," the Descendants star said of her latest project. "And this one, in particular, went kind of a step further, because I've always been in love with storytelling, and to be a part of storytelling from every aspect, from behind the scenes as a producer to physical storytelling as an actress to storytelling through song, was incredibly fulfilling."
Another film, Recurrence currently holds the third spot on Netflix's Top 10 list for non-English films. Recurrence, an Argentine crime thriller follows an ex-cop, played by Luisana Lopilato, who returns to a small town in the South American country after getting tangled up in a murder case.
