BEWARE OF FALSE REVIEWS & REVIEWERS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW TO THEIR NAME. NOW WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE FILM. IF ITS A NEGATIVE REVIEW THEN THEY MIGHT HAVE A GRUDGE AGAINST THE FILM . NOW I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 200 HOLIDAY FILMS. I HAVE NO AGENDA. I AM HONEST!
A woman unable to separate the joys of the Christmas season from the pain of her family past gets snowed in with two people who help her to realize what it takes to find true happiness. Thirty years ago, Kathleen's father left the house on Christmas Eve, and never came back. Ever since that day, Kathleen (Catherine Mary Stewart) has blamed her mother for breaking up
This film is slow. The filmmakers could of easily consolidated many scenes or moved things along in a faster pace. This would of served the film better. I don't not fault the actors they are all good. The fault was the approach the director took. The screenplay however has flaws as well.
Now this film could have been better but it is forgettable. If you watch this at night by morning you will forget the basic plot.
That was my experience.
