The romantic tale is based on the true story of Peter and Catharine Whyte. Catharine was a beautiful young debutante who dated a Rockefeller, and seemed destined for a life of leisure and privilege. Instead, fate steps in when she falls for a young painter and outdoorsman. Deciding to live for love, Catharine chooses to make her life in the mountains of Banff, Canada with a penniless artist. This true romance explores what happens when two people with opposite personalities attempt to come together.
The feature was filmed on location in Banff and Yoho National Parks in Canada, as well as in Montreal and Concord, Massachusetts. Judy Collins provides the vocals for the love theme in the film.
After the packed screening, the stars and guests retired to a sophisticated bistro nearby for a celebratory meal. The film will be released soon. To learn more, go to www.DrawingHomeMovie.com.
