What is Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ film Text For You about?
Based on the famous novel by Sofie Cramer, the story revolves around a woman (Priyanka Chopra Jonas) who after tragically losing her fiance, tries to cope by sending romantic texts to his old cell. What she doesn’t know is that the number has been reassigned to another man (Sam Heughan) who is recovering from a heartbreak too.
The two meet and instantly feel a connection, but find it hard to forget their sad pasts. Céline Dion’s part remains unclear but Deadline reported that “the music and influence of Dion gives them the courage to take a chance on love again.”
That’s an interesting premise!
