Great story
29 November 2018 | by awichlin-97605See all my reviews

Dr. Lauren Brunell thinks that she has her whole life figured out. She is a certified doctor, trying to be a surgeon, and wants to be accepted into a hospital fellowship in Boston; just like her father. However, those plans quickly fall through, and Lauren needs to rethink her life goals. She is still determined to follow through with her plan, and is put on the waitlist for this fellowship. In the meantime, she must take the only available position: the head doctor in a small town in Alaska. Coming from a busy city, this is a big change for Lauren. She encounters many hardships being the only doctor in town. However, once she learns to listen to her heart rather than her mind, she learns to warm up to the little town. She develops not only a love for the town, but also a love for a special guy. It's not until Lauren receives life-changing news, she must decide what her heart really wants. The secrets, love, and magic that the little town possess, unfold this life-changing tale for Dr. Lauren Brunell.

This Hallmark Christmas romance is perfect to bring you that warm Christmas feeling. While the acting in the film was not supreme, the Christmas joy throughout the movie negates this. The setting of the movie was probably my favorite aspect of the film. The little snowy town in Alaska reminded me of the cozy feeling that Christmas time can bring. The combination of the Christmas magic and romance brings joy to the film, making viewers fantasize an "ideal" Christmas love story. In addition, I loved how the secrets behind the little town add a touch of mystery to the film. Not only did the movie set the Christmas mood, it also portrayed a great lesson. Dr. Lauren Brunell reflects the most valuable aspect of life, doing what makes you happy. A Christmas Under Wraps is a perfect film to start of the Christmas season, outlining a very important message for all.
