What is Italia's new movie 'Don't Go Breaking My Heart' about?

The new flick stars Italia as Miranda, a young innovator who dreams up a "Breakup Boot Camp" to heal the recently broken-hearted — except one of the members of her group is trying to insist his heart was never broken in the first place. Journalist Ben (Ryan Paevey) is attending out of moral support for his sister, but he's also secretly trying to get the scoop on the camp for his job. Chaos (and romance!) ensues.

Italia opened up to Parade magazine about the film, noting that she's a little different than her character Miranda when it comes to romance, "I’ve been in a relationship for almost 13 years now so I didn’t absorb too much dating advice. But I think what I took from Miranda overall is that the advice you are giving other people might actually be the advice you should be taking yourself."

The actress also revealed that she and husband Robbie recently became American citizens, as both actors were born in Canada. When asked about one thing she liked about the U.S. and one thing she liked about Canada, Italia quipped, "I like that the United States has In-N-Out burger. I like that Canada has Harvey’s." 

It sounds like life is pretty blissful for Italia Ricci, and her new Hallmark original is sure to soothe any broken-hearted viewers. You can catch Don't Go Breaking My Heart on Mar. 27, 2021, at 9 p.m. ET on the Hallmark Channel.
