Hope you find time to watch this lovely film, during the Holidays or anytime
23 August 2012 | by (Toledo, Ohio) – See all my reviews

Patty (Madeleine Stowe) is awakened in the wee hours of the morning and handed a baby girl named Mia. As a social worker, she is used to emergency calls and it will be her job to find a foster home for the child ASAP. Fortunately, a foster family says yes, for Christmas is but a few days away. Patty goes home at the end of the work day and finds that her pilot husband, Mark (James Remar) is back for a spell. But, something is amiss between the two of them, as they have never fully recovered from the death of their own teenage son two years ago. Meanwhile, a little girl, Emily has been promised a special Christmas gift by her working, single mother, as soon as she gets done with her waitress shift. But, alas, her mother is in a car accident and can't return. Soon, Emily is dropped off at Patty's, too, for it is late in the evening and no one else can take her. So, another foster family has to be willing to welcome Emily. This time, Patty can't place her immediately but finds out there is an uncle who may be able to accept her in a few days. Since Christmas is so close, Mark feels it is best to give Emily a traditional Holiday, with a tree and such. But, Patty doesn't feel up to it and they argue. Also, a young doctor (Ian Ziering) and his wife are expecting their first child. Will happiness come to these nice folks at Xmas? This is a lovely film about family, loss, and new beginnings. With a nice cast, a touching script, lovely photography and a caring direction, it is a very uplifting experience. Therefore, if you are in search of a family flick which has the capacity to restore spirits, get Christmas Hope. Soon.
