Chances are that you will enjoy this little holiday film
10 April 2007 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Maddy (JoBeth Williams) is on the verge of divorcing her husband, Matt (Michael Ontkean). After all, he cheated on her, after 14 years, so doesn't he deserve to be dumped? It's nearing December 25th and Maddy is taking her two daughters to her mother's home in Chicago, to get away from the Christmas-at-home memories. At the airport, however, the wintery weather in Minnesota is turning into a blizzard and many flights are delayed, including Maddy's, her sister Katherine's, and the young girls'. As fate would have it, Matt is also at the airport, heading in a different direction, but his flight is likewise delayed. The two of them, Matt and Maddy, have plenty of time to cross each other's paths and discuss their futures. Katherine, a single lady lawyer, also meets an attractive man in the course of the day. Then, too, an older couple (Charles Durning and Barbara Barrie) are ready to share their advice on how to make a marriage endure. Will Maddy be able, bottomline, to forgive Matt? This is a sweet film that is, surprise, mostly conversation. After all, how much physical action can take place in an airport terminal? Williams and Ontkean are quite nice as the couple on the verge of marital extinction. The rest of the cast is also fine, with Durning and Barrie a pleasure to see and hear. The costumes and sets are fairly pleasant and the production values acceptable, as befitting a low budget film. As for the film's theme of forgiveness, that is always a welcome one, especially around the December festivities. Therefore, if you like holiday films that also offer a sweet love story, this one is definitely for you. So, when the day's chores are over, curl up in the sofa, sip some hot cider, and follow this tale of love that conquers all.
