Nice Christmas movie featuring Angel star.
5 December 2014 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

Touched by an Angel star Roma Downey stars as heiress Helen Radke, who returns to her hometown to sell all of her estranged father's belongings and settle his estate. She also threatens to sell a boy's orphanage, run by Jimmy Adams (George Newbern), during Christmas time.

It is interesting seeing Downey, known for her portrayal of the kind angel Monica in Touched by an Angel, play a cold character role, which makes the movie captivating. The story itself is pretty good and heartfelt, as it is captivating seeing how the people try get through with the heiress in saving the orphanage. Seeing how Helen deals with the smart aleck Wylie Armstrong (Scott Terra) is also entertaining.

The acting is quite good and the plot pacing is steady. Overall, one of the better holiday TV movies out there.

Grade B
