Synopsis by Mark Deming
Two men fall for the same woman, but one of them is not an ordinary suitor in this romantic comedy. Amanda (Kelly Reilly) is a beautiful British architect who leaves her job to move to Puerto Rico, where she'll help renovate and redesign a historic church. While she doesn't know it, she has company on her journey -- Will (Julian Rhind-Tutt) is a guardian angel who has been watching over Amanda all her life. Will is happy in his work, but it's not until he learns his services will no longer be needed that he realizes he's in love with Amanda. She is fated to meet and fall in love with Benjamin (Santiago Cabrera), a handsome Puerto Rican also working on the church project; Will doesn't want to lose Amanda, and he persuades one of his heavenly superiors, Archie (Kris Marshall), to make him a flesh and blood human for a week in hopes of winning her heart. Will soon realizes he has a lot to learn about mortal love, and it doesn't help that Amanda's best friend (Mia Maestro) thinks Benjamin is the better catch. Meant To Be was the second English language project for Belgian director Paul Breuls.
