To Have and To Hold is a romantic drama movie from 2006 that features Justine Bateman, Sebastian Spence, and William MacDonald. The story is about a woman named Alice, played by Justine Bateman, who has everything she could want in life: a successful career, a loving husband, and a beautiful home in the suburbs. But things start to unravel when her husband's ex-girlfriend, who he has a son with, comes back into their lives unexpectedly.

The movie begins with Alice living her seemingly perfect life. She is a successful lawyer who works for a prestigious law firm, she is married to a handsome and charming man named Michael, played by Sebastian Spence, and they have a beautiful home in the suburbs. Alice has a close relationship with her stepson, Joey, and everything in her life seems to be going well.

However, things start to take a turn when Michael's ex-girlfriend, Lisa, played by Chilton Crane, comes back into their lives. Lisa is the mother of Michael's son, and she has come back to town to reconnect with him. Alice tries to be understanding and accommodating, but she quickly realizes that Lisa has ulterior motives for being there.

As Lisa spends more time with Michael and Joey, Alice begins to feel increasingly threatened and insecure in her relationship. She starts to worry that Michael still has feelings for Lisa, and she begins to question whether or not their marriage is as perfect as it seems.

To make matters worse, Alice's boss at the law firm, played by William MacDonald, starts to become too familiar with her. He crosses boundaries and tries to engage in a romantic relationship with her, which only adds to her stress and anxiety.

As the tension builds, Alice is forced to confront her fears and insecurities head-on. She has to decide whether she is willing to fight for her marriage and her family, or if she is going to let her fears and doubts get the best of her.

To Have and To Hold is a poignant and emotional movie that explores the complexities of love, relationships, and the choices we make in life. Justine Bateman delivers a powerful performance as Alice, capturing the character's vulnerabilities and strengths in a way that is both authentic and relatable.

Sebastian Spence is equally impressive as Michael, playing the charming and charismatic husband who must navigate the challenges of balancing his loyalty to his family with his feelings for his ex-girlfriend. William MacDonald is also excellent as Alice's boss, bringing depth and nuance to a character who could easily have been one-dimensional.

Overall, To Have and To Hold is a well-crafted and compelling movie that is sure to resonate with anyone who has ever struggled with the complexities of love and relationships.
