Storyline

Now in young adulthood, Gina and Seth have been pen pals for thirteen years. They have graduated from handwritten letters when they started corresponding to email, but with both being insecure with who they are as people have decided not to exchange telephone numbers. Even when they have discussed exchanging photographs of the other, they have sent photos of their more outgoing best friends, Ellen and Matt, passing them off as themselves without telling either Ellen or Matt. Each has been there for the other through every major event that has happened in their lives, and as such, they have both fallen for the other without either admitting it to themselves or having the nerve to tell the other. Living in different cities - Boston and Denver - they have never even seriously considered meeting in person, until now. Seth, a junior executive at a toy company, is heading to Boston just before Christmas to attend a toy convention, which Gina, a struggling reporter stuck in "obituary" ... Written by Huggo

Wonderful
11 December 2011 | by nicole_wardSee all my reviews

I found this film, looking through a list of Christmas films for me to watch. I am so happy that I found this and went on to watch it! It wasn't as 'Christmassy' as I had been looking for, but it certainly was a brilliant film! I recommend you watch it, especially if you are a sucker for a bit of romance. This film made me feel warm inside, and it did start to put me in the Christmas mood!

The storyline is different than normal romance, which makes it fresh. To make it better, it has the love of Christmas in there too! If you are wanting a complete Christmas film (Santa, Christmas day etc)then you should probably not watch this film. However, if you want a film based around Christmas with the centre storyline being romantic then this film is perfect for you!

The only criticism I would have of this film would be that I think there should have been more to the ending (I won't say more, as I don't want to ruin the film).

It's films like this that don't get the attention they deserve. I really hope people go and watch this film, it really will be worth your time!
