The new Netflix film Purple Hearts has left viewers emotionally wrecked as they follow the love story of a struggling singer-songwriter and a troubled marine.
The pair enter into a faux marriage so that Cassie can benefit from Luke's health insurance as his wife, but things don't exactly go to plan. Watch below:
You don't have to be a film buff to guess what happens next between the pair - although this hasn't stopped viewers from going wild for the emotional flick.
Purple Hearts dropped on Netflix in the UK and US on 29 July, and has already shot to the top of the charts, with viewers rushing to social media to praise the film.
Its official synopsis reads: "In spite of their many differences, Cassie [Sofia Carson], a struggling singer-songwriter, and Luke [Nicholas Galitzine], a troubled marine, agree to marry solely for military benefits. But when tragedy strikes, the line between real and pretend begins to blur."
Praising its take on tried and tested romance tropes, one fan wrote: "just watched this and I LOVE IT!! cause honestly i just need that cheesy romance formula from hater to lover and the fake relationship at this point, for my crazy week. watch it you guys, purple hearts on netflix [sic]."

"Purple Hearts is an absolute masterpiece," declared a second viewer. "Here's a still from one of my favourite scenes. I watched it and I laughed, and I cried, and my heart felt full of happiness and love. This movie is a 10/10."
Another added: "i gave my whole heart to them (and my tears) this is one of the best movies i've seen in a long time. luke and cassie are so beautiful together and i loved how they showed us all their emotions [sic]."

"Purple Hearts served the fake dating trope, slow burn, the one bed trope, enemies to lovers, marriage of convenience, he fell first but she fell harder AND the long distance trope and you simply expect me to get over it?????" questioned a fourth fan.
While the film only has a critic score of 33 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, it does have a very high audience rating of 81 percent so far.
If you enjoy Purple Hearts, you're also in even more luck as it's based on a 2017 novel of the same name by Tess Wakefield, and as any film buff will tell you, sometimes the book can be even better.
