A Lifetime Surprise
29 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You know how a Lifetime movie will sometimes leap out of the box and surprise? HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS does just that. While the movie is billed as starring Sean Young and Perry King, the movie really belongs to Young and Lucia Walters. Perry King is in only a few scenes and is not worth writing about. Young, playing the role of an Aunt who gains guardianship of three children after the death of their parents, gives a truly compelling performance. This was the first surprise. The second was a wonderful performance from Lucia Walters as a Social Worker who must work inside a bureaucratic system - and actually care at the same time. The final surprise was a plot that kept me interested and a script that was fairly well-written. There are some weak spots and plot holes, but for the most part this little holiday telefilm fits into my category of a Lifetime Surprise.
