Storyline

Veterinarian and part-time mayor Sarah heads a town council desperate to find a doctor to keep open the small town's clinic. They fear, rightly, that family after family will move away and the town will disappear. Their hopes are raised when Bob announces his widower son Michael the surgeon and grand daughter are going to visit for the first time in years for the Xmas holiday. The mayor's attempt to recruit Michael is complicated by their history (their high school romance) and his secret shame (that he has lost his confidence in his surgical skills to the point that his big city hospital is kicking him upstairs to an administrative position).

Wonderful - Ashley Gorrell should be in more movies.....
28 December 2005 | by (United States-Ohio) – See all my reviews

This is a great movie.(I would rate this as one of my all time favorite movies) I usually cannot watch movies a second time but this is one movie I can watch over and over. Ashley Gorrell is awesome in this movie and the cast all seem to click together. This is a movie everyone can enjoy. You will need a box of Kleenex when watching this movie. Ann Jillian, Jack Palance, Robert Hays, Ashley Gorrell are great together. I would love to see a sequel to this movie You won't regret purchasing or renting this movie. I'll Be Home For Christmas is a must see every year at the holidays and gets one ready for the holidays. It puts Christmas in perspective and makes you realize how important family, friends and community are. A+
