“The Makeover”: Stiles and Walton shine in Hallmark Hall of Fame movie
The Hallmark Hall of Fame movie “The Makeover” is a modern take on “Pygmalion”/”My Fair Lady” with Julia Stiles starring as Hannah Higgins and David Walton as Elliot Doolittle.
As the film begins, Boston consultant Hannah, an advocate for education reform, has lost a bid for Congress because voters didn’t quite warm up to her straightforward yet chilly personality.
After Hannah and her business partner Colleen Pickering (Camryn Manheim) share a conversation with beer vendor Elliot, he comes to Hannah asking for her help to enhance his chances at getting a promotion at work.
Elliot has a thick South Boston accent and a very casual way of dressing, but he’s a people person – which leads Hannah and Colleen to enlist Elliot to be a political candidate himself.
Hannah doesn’t make this aspect clear to Elliot in the beginning, however – he thinks she and Colleen are assisting him in his goal to win that job promotion.
But after a makeover that includes a shaved beard, a haircut, suits added to his wardrobe, and an invisible South Boston accent, the time spent together turning him into a “proper gentleman” means Elliot may have more in store in his life with Hannah than a political campaign.
