Since they were children, Molly knew she wanted to become a writer, a dream which her parents supported. Lucas knew he wanted to become a photographer, something his banker father, Elliot Bishop, vehemently didn't allow him to pursue as a career, he believing only in guaranteed good-paying careers, like his own. Molly and Lucas broke up years ago when he would not follow her to New York, where they would have pursued their professional dreams. They have not seen each other since.

Did You Know?


The little tree shown at the beginning of the film would have been HUGE twenty years later----certainly much, much larger than the seven-foot Christmas tree that was shown in the present-day portions of the film. See more »

Very nice!
10 January 2021 | by ssimeonidou1See all my reviews

I liked this film very much! It's not the usual story.... Lacey Chabert is excellent again, the cast was very good, the photography, the setting and the story was well written. I especially liked Jim Thorburn as the boss of Lacey. One of the few times that the boss isn't a jerk! His acting was great, his chemistry with his "daughters" felt real wich makes me wonder why they don't give him the leading role??? He is charming, good actor and very good looking.... The characters in this movie interact in a relatively believable manner and the scenery is amazing with lots of Christmas notes and spirit of hope. I will definetery watch this again....
