Sofia Carson and Nicholas Galitzine Talk the Unique Love Story in ‘Purple Hearts’

Sofia Carson and Nicholas Galitzine star as Cassie and Luke in Purple Hearts. Carson, who serves as an executive producer, also co-wrote and performed the original soundtrack. The movie will be released July 29 on Netflix.

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.
