Natasha Bure, lead actress of the new Christian romantic comedy “Home Sweet Home,” opened up about her personal struggles with some of the themes explored in the film, such as identity and authenticity.
Admitting she’s “not perfect,” the 21-year-old actress told The Christian Post, “Every day, it’s a battle within yourself of finding your identity in something. For me, I want to find my identity in Christ. At the end of the day, I think there are so many times in my life where you get exposed to certain things, or you kind of get used to a certain lifestyle and it’s really easy to get off track, but at the end of the day, when you think about what’s important to you, you really need to ground yourself in that.”
“Home Sweet Home, which is now available to stream on Pureflix and is coming soon to other platforms via video on demand, tells the story of a “flirtatious barista Victoria, (Bure), who is bored with her social butterfly lifestyle and longs for wholeness but has no idea what that really means, so when handsome, Jason (Ben Elliott) walks into her coffee shop she turns on the charm. When he doesn’t respond to her flirting, a first for her, the challenge begins and ultimately leads her on a path to finding faith and her true self.”
It’s the first time both Bure and her co-star Elliot play lead roles in a movie.
The film was produced by the female duo J.D. Dewitt and Robin McLain, who decided to form their own film production company, 5×5 Productions, because of the odds stacked against them.
“As time goes on, there’s more positive female role models out there,” noted Bure, who is the daughter of actress Candace Cameron Bure.
“I think it’s so important, especially for young women who are growing up. There’s so much expectation, there’s so much pressure, I think, in the media, especially just in our day and age with social media and what you see in magazines and television. So I think when you have women speaking up for themselves, and sharing their stories and preaching positivity and love and hope and all that stuff, I think it’s really awesome.”
